Although we didn't dine here, we did go in a few times on our recent trip for drinks. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. A very good range of drinks, from beers, spirits, cocktails and a good wine list. All competitively priced considering where we were. Seemed to be the place to be seen while in Bowness because it was... More

Visited at 7pm on Saturday night - they don't take bookings. The bar was very busy with a nice atmosphere. We got our drinks & went upstairs to the restaurant - there were several tables available for 2. When we ordered the waiter told us that a lot of people had just arrived so there would a bit of a...

My wife and i called here for a meal after reading the reviews, they were so rude. We we're told to go upstairs and wait to be called to a table . We sat for ages when a table became vacant , nobody asked us to be seated so I asked "excuse me can we sit there," the reply came... More

This is a relaxed Spanish-style bar (pub really) with tables in booths, a central bar and great atmoshere. It's no fuss and very casual service - you have to go and get service. We chose our own table the way you do in a pub, then ordered and paid at the bar. We chose the chef's special tapis for two... More

Popped in here to get out of the cold after we had been shopping - fairly quick service and the cocktails were ok - not groundbreaking and with a lot of whipped cream involved which I'm not a massive fan of! Barman told us his name about 5 times which was fine but we were in the middle of a... More
