A family run business with our current tenants still going strong after 22 years, the vibrant lifestyle of this pub has created a strong character which is inescapable from the moment you twist the big, brass knob and step through the hardwood door frame into the cosy comfort of Ambleside's oldest licensed establishment.

Amongst our biggest attractions are our three nights of live music every week, which showcases some of the finest local talent and entertainment for all kinds of listeners.
