|Have to agree with yesterday's review by TonyMitch - I have been an occasional visitor (several times a year) for about 40 years now and the Golden Rule has always been an excellent and very well run pub throughout that time. I called in for a pint this afternoon and at 17.00 on a November Monday there were 17 mostly local people in the main bar and more in the other rooms, with customers coming and going all the while, giving the place a warm and friendly atmosphere. My beer (Robinson's Blonde) was on top form. The pub was a GBG regular when it belonged to Hartley's and for many years thereafter and if I had my way it would be a fixture now; I would have no argument with a second GBG pub in this busy holiday town (the Lily or Queen's for example) but unless there is radical change the Rule will always be Number One for me. |

|Cracking pub . The best by a military mile in the town. Full range of Robinsons/Hartleys beers and every single one well kept. Draft cider on too. Real fire, a number of different areas to drink, talk and relax. Can there be any sense in the local CAMRA group that I understand refuses to put it into the GBG because it won't carry any guest beers. Plain crazy decision by that CAMRA committee. It is a quiet Sunday and there are 7 real ales being served.|

|First class visit on Sunday, the landlord is a fine chap and we washed down some lovely ales with sandwiches, pork pie and scotch eggs.|

|Good place, made better by the quantity of games in the back room. Get in there and enjoy some brain exercise on Connect 4 or Scruples, or get physical with Kerplunk. |
Beer ok, punters friendly, toilet tested, all satisfactory.
Do people not have jobs in Ambleside, why was the place still going at 12pm on a Sunday. Will have to move there, and drop out.
