Lived in but totally agreeable pub. Coniston Bluebird at 3 quid was lovely, my wife had coffee in a cafetiere. People in, coal fire, top beer, a proper pub.

One of the last pubs I visited when I first came to Bowness, how I wish it was the first! A real drinkers pub, not a pub trying to be 'gastro'. Although they do offer good quality, good tasting grub and offer accommodation I tried neither of these focusing on the well kept beer.

A new brewery to me, The Coniston Brewing Co. I tried the Blue Bird and found it in excellent form, in fact I have tried nothing else since but if the Jennings Cumberland and the Timmy Taylors are as good I'm missing out!

Friendly locals, friendly and helpful staff too and positioned within 5 mins walk of my digs! Perfect. Keep up the good work Folks!

Remains an excellent pub. Had a lineup of six cask ales, and I can vouch for a good Bluebird Bitter. Also on were Tetley, Pedigree, Cumberland Ale, Cocker Hoop and Landlord. Food was excellent for hungry hikers.

We arrived in Bowness and decided to look for some decent pub grub. This pub had lots of customers, inside and out and looked like a good bet. We were served by a friendly young lady, who was extremely busy, but was very smiley and professional. We decided to have our meals indoors, as the heat was overpowering hubby.
It is a very family-friendly pub, with lots of toys and games provided to keep little ones busy, however, it could do with a refurb in places, some of the decor was rather tired and scruffy.
Our meals arrived promptly, hubby was delighted with his Mixed Grill, however, the quiche I had ordered was nothing short of disgusting. Perhaps I had just picked the wrong item from the menu that particular day, but we did not return.
