We visited with our 5 months old baby. Lovely food, friendly staff, a perfect warm and cosy hideout from the rain. Decent changing facilities and plenty of room for pram.

Pub itself great. Food average but may have been what we ordered. That said I would still return due to location and bar.

We arrived at The Albert just looking for some food on the first night of our stop at Windermere ; The pub had a lot of people in there and... More

The atmosphere is just great, very relaxed, friendly and full of happy families eating plates of good value and plentiful food. The staff are to be commended, are very friendly and helpful, and a real asset and addition to the whole experience of this... More
