After reading the reviews we decided to try The Albert for lunch. We did hesitate as there was a notice in the windows asking for staff, including a chef. We were so glad we went in as we had a lovely lunch and large portions. The waiter also was very friendly and professional. Thank you so much

The food here is average - it is tasty and it is ok value for money but it's not anything to rave about. The wine is not too bad for house wine, but my friend had the Malbec and it was much better than the house! For good solid pub food this is a good option in this busy area.

The rooms are generous, clean and the decor is great. The food is something special and not pricey especially with the portion sizes. The battered fish was...

Nice welcoming pub, lots of seats. Went for an evening meal, quite a big menu, had the battered cod and chips and the other half had lasagne, both massive portions. Did have to wait 45 minutes for the food but that was probably because the football was on, worth the wait though, would definitely return if In the area again!

The Albert is a pub with rooms and this is reflected in the very fair price so close to both the town of Bowness and the ferries at Lake Windermere. The accommodation is modern and very clean with comfortable beds. We were lucky to be there in excellent hot weather and the hotel provided us with a fan. Having the...
