|This pub has a front 'garden' as its best selling point on a spring/summer's evening but it doesn't make up for it being rather uninspiring in general. The beer choice is pretty poor and the pint of best I had was creamy and bland (more like some smoothflow crap rather than a real ale) . Food-wise I went for the curry platter which was good value, though it was definitely more supermarket 'indian' curry then true indian curry. There are better places in Ambleside for food and beer.|

|Well, this is why you just cant trust review web sites! I wouldnt choose to eat here, as it all looked a bit too delivered off a van. But the pint of Thwaites that I had was the best pint in all of the ambleside pubs (and we went to all of them). Even topped the bluebird at the Queens.|
And the last bloke said the beer was terrible!

|The beer here was absolutely terrible. The guest tasted of vinegar and the Jennings Cumberland was just stale. We left 4 half finished pints and walked out. There was no point complaining because the staff looked like they didn't care. Grumpy staff and bad expensive beer in any other country this would not be a sustainable business!|

|Ducked in here this afternoon and found it to be very welcoming indeed. Comfy chairs and efficient service and enough info on display to suggest that this pub is well liked by locals. A very cheery barmaid as well who has very good manners. The only issue I had was with the ale on offer. This area has some truly magnificent beers but it wasn't obvious that these were being either offered or promoted. The most prominent hand pull was from a long standing Scottish brewery and the beer that we finally settled on was Liberation Ale from the Channel Islands. Superb example of a summer ale/IPA line, but a bit out of place maybe.|
