The Haunted Room

This is a lovely real ale pub. Lots of choices in beers, ciders and lagers. Various rooms in side wig you canโ€™t get a place outside. With one beer we got a mini pork pie which was a nice touch. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Dogs are allowed too. I found this bar a lot nicer than one further up the road.

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.

Great find! I had the really nice 3 cheese blend sarnie. And some really great local ales and lager. There are so many great beers to choose from. The family who run the place are really lovely and the decor is very unique compared to anywhere else in Windermere. Highly enjoyable experience!
