Well, it seems this place is booked up early so make sure you pre-book. We just managed to gain a booking and it was a great meal (lamb for my wife and steak for me). The staff were friendly, efficient in this veruy atmospheric pub which is included in Beatrix Potter's books and sitting next to the house that she stayed. The food was great and reasonable in this quite remote area.

Room Tip: Book early

We rented a cottage near by and we ate at this pub every night for a week.Food was simple but really hearty and portions were enormous. I am a real ale fan and they served Loweswater Gold which is an award winning light bitter. Service was first class and friendly,when theyvsay dogs welcome they mean it.

We stayed at the Tower Bank for our anniversary get away and we are very glad did.

Firstly, Taylor was a star and couldn't do enough to make us feel at home.

There were only a few other guests staying when we were there but the atmosphere was very welcoming and the fire was crackling away nicely, which was much appreciated by our wet dogs. The staff were very friendly towards the dogs and kept a steady supply of treats coming!

The beer was well chosen and kept perfectly. The Loweswater Gold is delicious!

The food was brilliant, I had the lamb which was beautiful.

The room was small but cosy, though plenty of room on the floor for dog beds.

Breakfast was again spot on and well appreciated to soak up some of the ale!

Last visited about 9 years ago. Booked a table here for our evening meal which was lucky as due to popularity we couldn't have just turned up.
Very friendly staff and clientele.
Beer recommended by the barman was delicious especially if you love real ale.
Had the garlic bread with cheese as a starter. Fantastic. I do like my bread and this was sourdough.
Two fish and chips
One gnocchi
One stew ( my choice)
Definitely a place to go for good beer and food but do book.

Found this little gem while looking for a bite stop before getting on the ferry across the lake. A group of us parked our bikes in the beer garden and sat by a warm fireplace. The barkeep was very hospitable and friendly, the food was well made and delicious! Very pleased overall and would recommend to anybody.
