Will Larter left this review about The Ambleside Inn

The Ambleside Inn is in the same group of hotels as the Coniston Inn, and the way it has been refurbished is very similar. I only popped in to see if they were covering the football on TV later, and just had a half of moderately good Black Sheep out of politeness. I spent the few minutes it took me to drink it having a little laugh inside at the fakery and pretension in the alterations to the building, which I can remember having a very different ambience when I was here 10 years ago. I think I can be fairly sure it won't stay this way for another 10 years.

Will Larter left this review about Queens Hotel

This is a smart, wood-panelled hotel bar extending in various directions from the centre-rear bar. The room where I sat was towards the front, and featured a collection of oddities on high shelves: old skating and football boots, an early 20th century camera, and a pre-electric smoothing iron.

The six hand pumps on the bar all had local ales, from breweries such as Yates, Coniston and Hawkshead. On the music system: inescapably loud and truly dreadful 1950s American Christmas pop. Bah humbug!

Graham Coombs left this review about Queens Hotel

Large bar covering ground floor of small hotel, mainly aimed at eating. Has a number of good local ales on offer, although not much atmosphere.
