News

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..

Magnificent May

Posted: May 4th, 2024

Our favourite month, when the Lakes is full of life and colour, with the promise of a glorious summer to come. The weather might not be perfect just yet, but the lush greenery, bluebell filled woodland and skipping lambs make up for it. Call in here for refreshing homemade food and the best local ales. We take table reservations but hold back most of our tables for walk-ins, so please do just call in, though perhaps don't turn up right at the end of food service or you may be disappointed.

Spring is our favourite season in the Lakes. The trees are lush and green, the lakes are sparkling in the sunshine and the lambs (and tourists) are full of the joys of life. The woods all around are filled with brilliant bluebell displays, complimented by delightful chirping birdsong. So what are you waiting for? Good food and real ales, and of course our friendly staff, await you here at the Glen Rothay and Badger Bar, ready to give you a warm welcome.
