Sharing platter starter was fantastic. Mains of sirloin steak and a beef Yorkshire pudding dinner were amazing. Defiantly coming back again. Best food of our whole weekend in the area

Called into the pub for a couple of drinks and were impressed by the real ales offered from local Lakeland breweries. Sampled several different beers and all were in good condition, like other pubs in the lakes food and beers tend to be a bit pricey, but when they are kept in excellent condition like here then it's worth it....

My wife and I both had garlic mushrooms to start. Came quickly with a warm bread roll. For my main I had lasagne and she had chicken wrapped in bacon. Both arrived quickly after the starters and had a small but lovely fresh salad with them. Really tasty meals all fresh and home cooked. Restaurant was clean and the staff... More

Called in one evening and the lady behind the bar was really informative regarding the real ales on offer. We enjoyed it so much we called in every evening we were there.

Stayed here three nights over New Year. Room in one of the front bays. Room and amenities good. Be aware if windows open it can be noisy ( centre of town) but it was New Years Eve. Also there's a clock over the road that chimes randomly! Breakfast good, staff all friendly and work hard. Lounge bar and restaurant popular... More

We had dinner and drinks here ordering basic Streak and Ale Pie and Cottage Pie. The food did not disappoint. Both were very tasty and the steamed vege were steamed to perfection and not soggy!! The chips were lovely and clean tasting and did not sit heavy. Would definately eat here again.

Went here with our family during a holiday in Ambleside. On the whole the staff were good but the food was average at best and not worth the price. Portions were small and it looked like they had accidentally spilled a couple of vegetables on my plate rather than given me a portion. Had expected better but was disappointed. With... More

Popped in The Queens hotel on a Friday evening at the start of our weekend in Ambleside. The restaurant and bar area was bright and warm and we were seated straight away. The menu is hearty pub grub with a good selection. The food, service and prices were all very good. I can't comment on the hotel because we stayed... More
