Been several times. Always lovely food and nice atmosphere. We've tried a few similar places in Ambleside and this is still no. 1

Found this little gem down a side street we had never been down in Ambleside. It looked so appealing from the outside, very cosy looking. Inside it was warm which is something I greatly approve of! Was good, hearty, kind of home cooked food. Definitely give it a go if you are passing. Staff were very friendly too.

Stumbled across this lovely place, after an afternoons hiking, in the south Lakes. We had a warm welcome from the staff and sampled some delicious teas and locally made cakes. Well worth a visit!

Dined here with family on our visit to Ambleside. It is a lovely restaurant. We had fish and chips which were lovely. Other family members had steak & kidney pudding, the burger and a child's sausage and mash. Service was very good. Would definitely go back if we are in Ambleside again.

The place it's self was nice, nothing special however the food (quality) wasn't bad, the building points of the restaurant will be 1) the menu, this needs looking at the meat platter to begin with has a combo of food that doesn't really fit, piccalilli, with pulled pork and Italian meats and Greek olives and the chicken with pesto blobbed...
