A quiet, unassuming Thwaites pub a short walk from Haverthwaite station on the heritage railway, which combined with a boat ride down Windermere makes a nice day out. When we (a party of 8) were there on a Wednesday afternoon, we doubled the clientele numbers and it deserves more recogniyion.

Yes this is a Thwaites pub that serves only Thwaites beers - Original, Anglers Ale, Lancaster Bomber & Wainwrights. But it did score a little higher for me with its choice of 3 ciders - Mr Whiteheads Newton's Discovery & Westons Old Rosie & Rosie's Pig. It was good to see a cider from as far afield as Hampshire. There are 2 rooms, 1 more for diners and the other more for drinkers. It felt a little dated. But that's not always a bad thing. I quite liked this pub.

I'm sorry to report that the Anglers is now a Thwaites' house, with one guest. It seems a shame since the range of beers when a free house was fantastic. If you like Thwaites' beers, then this is the place for you. If however, you prefer a choice then maybe not.
However, in its defence, the food is still excellent and definitely worth a try if in the area.
My lower rating is based solely on beer as I am not a huge fan of Thwaites, especially when there are fantastic breweries nearby, Hawkshead, Ulverston, Stringers, Greenodd, Coniston, to name but 5. It seems a shame that this establishment had to be sold.

This pub is going from strength to strength, certainly giving the nearby White Hart Bouth, some serious compettition. Food is good solid pub grub, I had the best plaice I have ever had here and sveral good meals

Beer range always interesting and MARKEDLY cheaper than the White Hart.

Good pub grub and a rotating selection of beers. It's a very friendly place with lots of interest for families. The theme mixes railways with angling and the bar staff will happily dangle a spider in your direction (seriously) or activate the model railway that runs the length of the ceiling. Overall: very welcoming and relaxing. If you visit in Spring, check out the carpet of daffodils in the valley graveyard just below the pub - quite exceptional.

on my visit on a sunday afternoon whilst on holiday 3 of us tied all 5 of the real ales on offer and there were no complaints the pub is in 2 parts a dining area and a a bit of a tap room with a pool table and a tv dart board ect allthough we did not eat the resteraunt looked very busy the pub is just across the road from the haverthwaite stem railway so if you dare try and cross it the anglers is well worth the wait

how can nobody have rated this pub yet? this is a cracking boozer only slightly off the beaten track. what can i say? large variety of real ales in front and back bar, excellent food, friendly staff. next time you are passing or at the lakeside and haverthwaite railway, don't pass it by, walk across the road and see what a good boozer is really like.
