We are optimistic that the worst of COVID is past and the coming summer will be fantastic. Let’s hope the weather is as good as last year!
We have used the lockdown to upgrade a lot of this charming building, including a big improvement to the bar rooms, re-instating the fireplace (with logburner) in the large lounge, adding some fine antique furniture..

Don't get stressed by the crowds in Ambleside and Bowness, visit the tranquil Badger Bar instead. Our large and very fabulous beer garden awaits. Grab a summery Aperol Spritz or a golden ale and relax, you're on holiday!

Update... Badgercam now working. Watch the badgers live at dusk. Or even better, come for a meal and a drink then watch them up close! You can get quite close to them. But if you see a ginger cat, send it packing! It's definitely not a badger and its not our cat either. It will come and steal the food off your plate in the beer garden if you give it half a chance.
Spring has sprung!

The bluebells are out, the lambs are skipping in the fields and the sun is shining. It is just lovely in the Lakes now, and where better than sitting in our delightful beer garden with a pint listening to the chirping birds?

Spring in the Lakes

The blossom is out, the sun has a bit of warmth and the lambs are playing in the fields. If the weather is not perfect, then call in for a pint and a tasty pie in front of our open fires. Very cosy. See you soon...
