Booked a break on a voucher and, having not toured the lakes before, we didn't mind how good the inn was. We needn't have worried, we were made very welcome and the room and food were superb. Would definitely recommend

Lovely pub with lovely people. After an 8 hour drive (and a lot of traffic) we just wanted to relax and enjoy some nice food. This is exactly what we got at the Bower House. The staff were great, the customers were great, they're dog-friendly and the food was lovely...what more could you ask for. The chocolate brownie is to... More

I am not one to gush or fawn over restaurants, but I honestly believe I have just had the best Sunday Lunch I have ever eaten anywhere, anytime. The beef was perfect. The chef and staff need to be highly commended. The room was warm and comfortable, the log fire was burning, staff very welcoming, I was only surprised I... More

On our weekly jaunt around the lakes this week we stopped at Bower House for something to eat. Having drove by this place a few times I thought it was about time we paid a visit. We parked in the car park and walked in via the beer garden into a small bar area with a roaring open fire. We... More

We stayed here for one night last weekend, it was great ! Food was lovely and we were made to feel very welcome, even our dog Muttley was given a biscuit at the bar and really enjoyed his stay. Great atmosphere all round, the staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. We would definitely recommend as a great place... More

I really enjoy the food and service here. It is a very friendly and welcoming pub to visit. The locals are very friendly and chirpy. I love sitting in the snug listening to the stories of the locals. The pub classics here are very tasty, good portion sizes and there is a wide range of beers. If there is something... More
