After having wandered through Ambleside on a hot sunny day, where we found the few pubs with outside seating to be busy with no seating available, we wandered on to find this place a bit of the beaten track. It had previously been an old mill which was now a listed building, which had been converted to a bar and restaurant. Outside there was good modern tables and benches in a a lovely sun trap area, with parasols for shelter if needed. inside there was a modern bar serving a selection of continental beers, wines and spirits. Once comfortable we ordered a baguette sandwich for a snack to share. Although service was efficient and quick and the filling was fresh and plentiful, the only disappointment was that the baguette itself was a bit soggy and not crisp and fresh.

Had a lovely meal here on the recommendation from Sue, owner of 'Nanny Brow' where we were all staying. There was a very good menu here and great food to match! The staff too were very good.
'The Fulling Mill', is situated very close to the famous little 'Bridge House' in Ambleside and I guess of equal age, but it's been very tastefully modernised and remains in keeping with the working mill it once was.

The Fulling Mill is great fun! We sat upstairs, one floor up, amidst old machinery which has been well restored. The bar is downstairs and there's another restaurant floor above where we sat. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. We only had one dish each and would really recommend both the aubergine and tomato stack, and vegetable tagliatelle. This restaurant is right beside the adorable tiny house on a little bridge. We found the prices very reasonable.

Stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner whilst on a day out in the Lakes. Seen the place many times when in Ambleside, but never eaten here before. Restaurant on 3 floors in a converted wool mill, nice decor and varied menu. Never arrived til nearly 4pm, place quite quiet so served right away by friendly and helpful staff. Whilst we waited for our mains we had an assortment of breads, with dipping sauces, which really wet our appetites. My wife had a main of crusted chicken breast, with mash and veg, with a sauce which she found delicious; I had a dressed crab with salad, bread and a few hand cut chips, also delicious. Great portions, in fact couldn't eat mine, so waitress had the half remains of my crab wrapped in foil so that I could enjoy later, on a sandwich, when I returned home. Meal with drinks totalled just over £40 which I considered quite reasonable for a decent meal in a Lakes restaurant. Lovely restaurant, great service,highly recommended

We dined here on the recommendation of the bed and breakfast we were staying at. Found it on the afternoon and had a chilled out couple of hours before heading back for dinner. Lovely atmosphere and quirky murals on the walls in the toilets which made for conversation over the meal.
Lovely meal I had steak which was cooked to perfection.
Reasonably priced and quick service event though it was quite busy.
