Found this place by chance, walking through Windermere and time was getting on! With 2 dogs sometimes you options can be limited when you don't know the area, we ordered ribs and Camembert for starter both lovely, then lasagne and gammon for the mains, the lasagne was gorgeous, full flavour and the gammon looked just as nice, the veg could...

tried the Queen, kitchen "closed", went straight hereas we've been before. Food was very poor, service very good which is sad. Won't return

I went for the Cumberland sausage and mash and my companion chose the Scampi and chips. Both were disappointing. The sausage was good but the mashed potatoes were quite bland (possibly made from a powder base?) and the veggies clearly came from a can. The scampi were awful and one wonders if they had ever seen the sea. Total bill... More

This was the third pub we visited for an evening meal only to find that they also didn't do food Mon-Weds out of season. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful and the ales were spot on. I had to drag myself away to go in search of food elsewhere.

We always call in to the Grey Walls for drinks and sometimes a bite to eat when we visit Windermere. The staff are friendly and attentive. There is always a warm welcome here. We only had a few side orders of cheesy chips, onion rings and garlic bread as a snack this time but it was really good value, fast... More

Called in here for a drink.....wasn't overley impressed at first sight. It's a local pub and friendly but nothing special. Food that was served past us looked ok but I didn't find the menu great so we never ate here. They are dog friendly on the positive side.

Popped in for food, though not offering a great menu, the food was delicious. Staff was friendly to let you try on different beer/lager before you decided. Quiz on Monday night, and it was fun. People drinking in pub were friendly and so were the pets they brought in.

It's true what they say about visiting locations the locals prefer to visit. We enjoyed a gammon and egg meal, whilst drinking some fine ales. Food was lovely. Of course it's pub food, however prepared well, a decent portion and tasty. The staff were friendly and well mannered. Best of all, it was not having (although this is a Monday... More

We visited here as somewhere convenient on the first night of our stay. Everything about this place is excellent. We both had the gammon and eggs, which was well cooked and the portion sizes are great. A bit more than you'd normally pay for pub food but not overpriced and to be honest worth every penny as the quality is... More

Found this place by accident while out for a walk and glad we did. Food was lovely and reasonably priced as very good quality, staff were amazing and couldn't do enough to help you. Beer garden is lovely when the sun is shining. Will def return when I'm back in Windermere
