lovely last minute dinner

After a really awful drive from London we were exhausted and disappointed that our hotel for the night was not serving dinner due to a function. Our family of 4 headed to Bowness and found it to be very busy with most restaurants and pubs already full. We found this place by accident really – we just happened to be looking up! – and we’re delighted we did. The ambience was lovely and our 3yr old was made to feel just as welcome as the mainly adult clientele. Service was very timely and the food was delicious. Definitely worth the visit if you’re in the area.

relaxation haven

From arriving to checking out our whole stay was a pleasure from the standard of our room to the friendly staff and gorgeous food we couldn’t have asked for more. Nothing was too much trouble.

A wonderful place to stay

Great location, rooms very cosy and well maintained. Breakfast was lovely and we had dinner in hotel on the first night and the food was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had a great stay!

Such a friendly place to stay

My husband and I spent 3 nights here while we were visiting friends to do some sailing. The room was beautifully laid out, clean and tidy. Fresh towels every day. Breakfast was mixed with something that I believe would suit most people. We only ate in the restaurant one evening, it was a nice menu with a mixture of fish, meat or vegetarian. Staff were very attentive, always polite and very welcoming. Compared with other hotels in the nearby area it was a good price and far cheaper than some. There were parking facilities for cars and motorcycles. We would happily recommend it to family and friends and definitely stay again if the opportunity arose.

Fabulous Inn

I had booked for my husbands birthday. Room was lovely, wine as requested waiting! Lovely comfy bed and great shower. Staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was lovely. The Inn is just a short walk from the Lake and all amenities. Loved it!.

Fantastic place to eat, drink and relax

We had a really lovely meal in the restaurant. The food was excellent and a bit more up market than some other pubs in the area. Very friendly staff, lovely decor – very welcoming. The elevated position gives wonderful views from the gardens or the two front rooms. The orangery is very light and airy and very comfortable.We shall definitely visit The Angel Inn again when holidaying in the Lakes.

Can’t wait to go back

We stayed in a house nearby and noticed they did breakfast so the whole family of 8 visited. The food and service were so good we booked dinner for the next night and we all absolutely loved it. The service was exceptional and the decor was lovely. Each one of us had something different for breakfast and they were all spot on.

Great food, great place

We visited The Angel twice for evening meals during our recent stay in Bowness. Very friendly staff and a great atmosphere. On both occasions the food was excellent, two delicious ploughman’s first visit and two beautifully presented and well cooked meals on the second. A great choice of well kept cask ales for me and plenty of wines on offer for my better half. The place, for me, also has a lot of character. Random rooms around the bar before you reach the fine looking dining room. A visit to Bowness is pretty much an annual one for us and we will be back here for certain!

best site in bowness

Never get tired of coming up here and relaxing, even the days when it was Crag Brow, never lost its charm, suns out today, gardens busy, great spot for a quick drink or bite to eat, seek it out if your out for the day in the lakes .

nice family meal

We went on a wet Saturday evening as we has just arrived in Bowness and liked the look of it from the outside. We were not disappointed with the food either, reasonably priced and the beer was good too. We sat in the room to the right of the bar which was tastefully decorated which did not feel over crowded.

lovely setting to take a break

My husband and I were staying at Windermere and came twice here for something to drink and eat. We sat outside and the views are spectacular. Service here is very very good. The food is very good too.. Staff here were very good. Would recommend if you want to stop off for a drink or something to eat.

great location

This hotel/pub is situated right in the heart of the Windermere. It’s a great place to visit, or if you just fancy a drink or two! On entering the building you can feel the charm and see the cleanliness. Will be back! ASAP! Also great to sit outside and watch the world go by.

all round great place

Brilliant place to eat, meet and stay with both friends family or just a romantic weekend away. This place has everything under one roof. Food is great and the view on a sunny day sitting in the beer garden is just superb.
