Spent a week at the Marina Village and popped in here most days for a drink or a meal. We spent all of our time in the bar area, but there is a restaurant upstairs. Plenty of home comfort dishes on the menu which are well proportioned and tasty. Good selection of ales. Prices are typical for Windermere - think £13-£15 for a main. From what we observed, staff worked hard, sometimes under trying circumstances (eg: one evening a couple of dozen Boat Club members turned up unannounced without bothering to book!).

Just popped in for a drink and, after seeing the food coming out, decided to stay and eat there too. Very good service and good quality food at reasonable prices. Nice spot overlooking the marina. Would go there again. .

Popped in for a drink with the view overlooking the marina. The bar staff was friendly... just know exactly what you would like to order, as recommendations weren't forth coming.

The bar is lovely with sofa's and tables either inside or out on the verandah. You have a few from inside the bar too, which was nice on a hot day trying to stay out of the sun.

Nice veranda to watch the boats moore in and food was good but the staff seemed to be on their day off. Went to order a round but the bartender was in no hurry to finish their conversation with a colleague who had seemingly just finished their shift, then we waited and watched as the bar staff cleaned the bar while the kitchen notified ( using a doorbell noise) +5 times that our food was ready to be be brought to us. Pretty disappointing standard of service since it seemed like a respectable venue!

After a quick google search of local restaurants we decided to try the boathouse. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was, the service was very good and a lovely view out on to the water. Relaxed atmosphere, tv showing the world cup in the corner. Went twice during our stay and was the same both times.
