My partner and I visited here on Saturday night following research on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed! We were staying at the nearby travelodge and it was only a short drive to the watermill inn. We both had cheesy garlic bread for starters, followed by lamb hotpot and the special cod loin - the food was delicious and we were... More

Called in here on way back from Windermere for a quick pint and what a find! A lovely, friendly pub and VERY dog friendly too! Didn't have time for food but the real ales are superb and made on the premises. Highly recommended!

Drove past on the way to Windermere and saw the sign advertising up to 16 real ales. Called on the way back and were not disappointed. We had two dogs with us and half of the pub/restaurant is dog friendly and most people in there were in the same boat. The real ales were spot on and there are windows... More

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch when we discovered The Watermill Inn. We ordered the salsa nachos to share as a starter. They were lovely and did not disappoint. My partner and I both had the beef burger which came in a brioche bun with homemade chips. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My only criticism would be... More

Great food and a bonus we could eat out with our dog on holiday. Me and my husband both had the game casserole which was gorgeous. Loved the micro brewery and even bought some bottles of ale to take home. Lovely food, service and atmosphere.

My husband and I have just spent a couple of days at the lakes for my birthday, we stayed in Windermere at a nice B&B, there was no bar where we stayed and decided to drive out and find somewhere nice for a drink and a meal, we didn't have to drive far, it was only about 2 miles and... More

We enjoyed dinner here a couple of nights during our stay in Ings and the food was always very delicious. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the service was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals here at the Inn and they were a reasonable price.
