About the Pub

Overlooking the enclosed Windermere Marina and adjacent to the Hawkshead ferry, this modern bar complex is a calm haven in the tourist maelstrom. Enjoy excellent beers and a tasty plate on the sheltered suntrap terrace with great views of the yachts, the lake and the hills beyond that are reminiscent of the Italian Lakes or the South of France. A wall of windows provides protection from the elements if the weather is more 'Lake District'. The generous upper floor function room can be booked for meetings and private parties. Live music and themed dinners. Wonderfully appointed disabled facility and access all areas by wheelchair.

Special taxi rate to Windermere station on request.

Easy walk from Bowness Pier.
