Outgate Inn Ambleside
The Outgate Inn is a hidden gem. A lovely whitewashed Lake District Inn, which dates back to the 18th century offering real ales, home cooked food and comfortable accommodation. Enjoying a roadside location on the scenic B5286 between Hawkshead and Ambleside, it is close to caravan parks and campsites - a great base to start and finish Lakeland walks. It is well positioned for walkers, mountain bikers and touring visitors. There is a secluded beer garden at the rear to enjoy the summer sunshine. The lounge has a roaring log fire in the winter. A well-equipped kitchen that serves good homemade food in both informal and semi-formal dining areas. There is a small car park next to the pub and another larger one across the road. Robinsons are ideally seeking experienced operators with some catering skills. This opportunity would suit a couple, with one of the team a cook/chef.
A central bar which serves the main lounge/dining area with over 50 covers. The Outgate has a medium sized catering kitchen and, to the first floor, three pretty en-suite letting rooms for B&B guests; two with comfy double beds and one twin. To the rear of the building is a small patio area and an attractive beer garden. The pub has generous parking, at the back and even more just over the road and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The overall condition of the decor and fixtures and fittings are very good.
