Me and my mum came here on Sunday afternoon for lunch, we ordered from the £5 menu and Mum went for the soup and sandwich, she decided she didn't fancy the soup and was able to swap this for chips instead with no problems.

Where to start, my husband invited we for a long weekend away in Windermere and we staid at The Elleray. When there I could not find anybody to check in and when I finally found somebody there was a confusion if the room was paid or not. There is no parking if you bring a car but you can park...
