We love this pub, we are not in holiday in the Lakes until we have first sipped real ale in the Tower Bank Arms, and then stopped at the Hole in’t Wall in Bowness for a great pint and a good pub lunch. I’d recommend...More

Was recommended this pub by a friend. We really liked it. Relaxed easy place with very good service. My wife hates pubs normally ( we live in Scotland ) but really enjoyed the Hole in T Wall. Thanks

Lovely pub and friendly, cosy atmosphere, me and my boyfriend both had a flavoured gin and lemonade and were impressed by the range of 26 different gins available. The staff were also really friendly.

If you want history and good traditional beer this is the place, it’s not posh nosh, but honest pub grub. The oldest tavern in Bowness, enjoy soaking up the atmosphere by sitting where the ancestors sat way back in 1612. Loved it.

Sorry, I have no idea. It is certainly a pub that opens all year but I don’t know about Christmas Day. If I would you I would just give them a ring.
