If you like your standard pub chain, then this isn't for you. If you like a quirky place with something interesting everywhere you look, your going to love this place! Every room you go into has a different theme, including a room full of creepy dolls ๐Ÿ˜‚ Great selection of food and great beer and gin selection. I'm going to be visiting this place everyone I go to the lakes, it's just ace, I can't recommend it enough!

This is the best place ever we have found for a drink and be socially comfortable. The place is just magical in its own right. The service is enjoyably brilliant and the food is just out of this world. Sharing slate No 5 was just off the charts!!! Amazing place guys! If you miss this place while in Windermere then shame on you ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ 5 โญ๏ธโ€™s

Eclectic decor, with a multitude of items hanging from the ceiling. Soul, blues and jazz music playing in the background. Huge choice of ciders and beers, not forgetting to mention the great tasting food. I particularly liked the nachos and the sandwiches are massive. If you manage to eat a whole sarnie then you'll be full the rest of the day. Try and you won't be disappointed.
