Booked our 25th wedding anniversary here and the staff really looked after us. The food was beautifully presented and of high quality and taste, a lot of thought had gone into each dish. I have to say the goats cheese and pear starter was the best goats cheese I've ever tasted. I love how the menu is changed daily and... More

After previous visits, we had high expectations at Lucys'. The vegetarian options sounded interesting and the avocado starter was very simple but fine. However both main courses very hugely disappointing and reminded us of how vegetarian food was years ago lacking imagination and, in this case, seasoning too. Disappointing too to find that although we left most of the food... More

The ambience in this restaurant is the best in Ambleside in our opinion. It was cozy, and if you are celebrating a special event, you will be made to feel special indeed. It looked like they wrote up your event at the top of the menu! The menu is interesting and varied. We had the salmon and a chicken dish--chicken... More

We went to Lucy's at 6.30pm and was told by the Blonde lady who seemed to be the hostess that there were no tables until 8.15pm, so me and my partner decided to take that booking. We went back at 8.10pm where we queued patiently, the gentleman behind the bar informed the Hostess lady that we were here and she... More

well, well, Nicola C - there you are - my front of house supervisor (together with other members of the team who were working that night) thought that you would post a review and would that we, as hospitality providers, could post reviews of guests (I've tried that but you're not allowed to ... apparently we have to take it...

Enjoyed lovely cocktails one rainy afternoon, really knowledgeable barman who knew his stuff and would highly recommend the Porn Star Martini. A few more cushions, candles etc would have added to the comfort and most wine bars do put a few little salty nibbles out with your drinks which would have been nice....a win for the bar too as you...

Great wine and cocktail bar with a small outside seating area and the most helpful barman. He was so polite and made suggestions as to what we could try next. Management should be very proud of the customer service he provides, he was the reason we returned three nights running. Wish I'd got his name so you could give him... More

We picked Lucy4 as my girlfriend had visited previously for tapas. They have stopped serving food at this location and have moved food over the main restaurant across the street, Lucy's On A Plate (please see our other review). We were the only people in at 5pm on a Thursday night, never the less, the barman Nico (Polish fella from... More

Went in for a glass of wine but we decided to stay and down 2 bottles between 4 of us. Lovely staff giving excellent reviews and recommendations on wine. Definately worth a visit.

Lucy4 Wine Bar & Bistro is tucked away in the backstreets of Ambleside and is a combination of cockt4ils, wines, continental and local bottled beers, soft drinks, together with a wide range of mix and match style food ... it's not exactly tapas in that the portions are bigger than tapas and a little more interesting in variety. It's a fun and fiendish place 4 everyone ... Ideal 4 Individuals, Perfect 4 Parties, Cosy 4 Couples and Fun 4 Families. Live Acoustic guitar most Sundays from 9pm. Open daily from 5pm and last food orders at 10.30pm. Set on two levels, with entrances at both - outside decking area as well as small, compact bar area. Friendly staff, all in all an interestingly, different dining experience - if you do anything ... do a chocolate fondue - be a Devil and try Lucy4!
