A white rendered corner Thwaites pub, with black paintwork. It is in Georgian style, with sash windows, central entrance with neo-classic surround and painted stone ashlar quoins. The interior is a single open plan room, with cream and green half and half walls and carpet floor. There is nothing really in the way of pictures and ephemera, so it looks a little bare, except for the coloured glass above the the serving bar. There is a pool table and dart board and the TV had a music channel on at a decent level. The service was friendly enough, but there was no other clientele. Beer; usual stuff with Thwaites Original on handpull, although this was turned around. The Guinness was fine. The pub seemed fine, just not a lot for the real ale drinker.

hello, my 1st time visit here, would love to see some comments on here that are positive as im working hard to rid THE GRAPES of its previous negativaty ,this pub was always gonna be a challenge - hell I didnt use to come to this pub as it had its "set patrons" and if u didn't belong well .... the last 6 months its coming together music is popular the karaoke on Friday nite is v well supported as is Sunday afternoon slots, the aim since I took the tenancy of this pub was to shape it up to cater for all age groups,I am always happy when customers on leaving thank me for the welcome shown & an enjoyable evening, the tag of Flying Handbag needs to be lost as you are more likely to experience unpleasantness in other pubs in Ulverston rather than The Grapes nowadays, occasionally someone does let me down if this happens it is dealt with as quickly as possible & the person/s concerned ejected & NOT welcomed back in a hurry, my motto bieng "for every 1 troublesome jerk i get rid off this pub will welcome 2 new customers " & this seems to be working . Thank you for taking the time to read this .
