Amazing little find in Windermere! Popped in for a quick drink and ended up staying all day, 2 days in a row! Great selection of drinks and the food is amazing - definitely recommend the Camembert. Lovely, knowledgable staff. Will be back :)

Brilliant atmosphere, best selection of craft beers ever, friendly and knowledgeable staff, log burner and excellent "grazing" menu - fantastic way to while away a wet Windermere afternoon. Will definitely go back, and highly recommend a visit

Hi, sadly not at the Crafty Baa. The only place I can think of would be the Baha which definitely has live music on Sat 13th but not too sure if anything on Sunday 14th. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
