lovely stay

Stayed for 3 nights at Angel and it was wonderful. We stayed in room 12 which has a nice view across the town and lake.The breakfast was top class and you could tell only the best local produce was used.We had dinner 1 night and that was also lovely.The bar is well stocked and had a good choice of draught beers and lager.We really liked the atmosphere at the Angel and will definitely stay here again. A big thumbs up to all the staff who were superb.Well done and thanks.

a beautiful place to stay

Set in a brilliant location just minutes from the lake and all restaurants and bars nearby. I’ve stayed in quite a few of the hotels in Windermere and this has to be the best in my opinion. Staff very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Rooms and furnishings finished to a very high standard. After walking all day you can relax in front of an open fire. You won’t be disappointed if you decide to stay here.

very friendly and excellent food

A very pleasant visit on Sunday evening. Very nice food and dog friendly. This place as a lovely ambience is well appointed and exceptionally well run. One of the staff members was leaving and working her last shift. The management presented her with flowers and a gift. A lovely touch.

Winter Break

Had a another couple of nights away, room 11 this time, what a quaint room beautifully appointed, just what you want. Again the staff just can’t do enough for you. Gotta give Jamie a special mention, he never forgets a face, and so pleasant. I defy anyone to find s nicer place in Bowness for the price.
Breakfast is just so special, the rooms spotless and staff so friendly. Again another big well done to The Angel.

great venue

Have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. A lovely indoor and outdoor eatery with great views of the lake. Food excellent with a good choice of dishes. Staff friendly, helpful and happy. Highly recommended for drinks, lunch and dinner.

excellent stay

We stayed for two nights and had an excellent stay. The room was to a high standard, the shower was hot and powerful! The breakfast was great we had a good choice and there was plenty to choose from on the continental side of things. We will definitely stay again!

angel from heaven

Once again the Angel delivered. Ok, it’s a few minutes walk uphill from the main drag but it’s worth it. Period dining room with a good choice on the lunch menu plus good, friendly, efficient service & reasonably priced. They must be doing it right otherwise the eight visits over four years would have been stopped in the tracks.

just lovely

Had a wonderful two night stay. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and enjoyed it so much we reserved a table for our last night. Was just as well as it was extremely busy and no wonder as the food was delicious and the service was great. Cannot fault the staff from check in,breakfast drinks and dinner. Everyone we met was friendly efficient and professional. Can’t wait to return.

great food

Popped in for a drink with the dog and pram, sat next to log fire and had a drink. Not cheap but not too expensive either, was a really nice setting after a long walk. Food people were eating looked good so Decided to book in the restaurant for a meal later that day, and managed to get last table. The food was excellent, the spiced roast chicken and tomato soup was amazing. Food prices reasonable for a high standard of restaurant. Will definitely be back when next visit

Great value for money on there web sight offer

Well its good to stay with you again. All your hard work & investment is paying off. The new manager seems to be good at his job, spending just enough time for a quick chat, nice. Ps if you fancy selling us room 15 at some time that would be good. Hope you have a good winter season, we will be back to see you soon

great dinner

We had late afternoon drinks followed by dinner here on a Saturday in September. Plenty of outdoor seating, small cosy area with real fire, a couple of larger rooms. Good choice of ales. Menu was good pub food – we had fish & chips and chicken pie, both great. Would recommend.

drink only

Love this pub, it has everything. We just drank here this time around and sat outside drinking lovely local ales in great surroundings with friends.. Very dog friendly and in a great raised location just across from the Beatrix Potter Museum. Very friendly staff too.

very good

Enjoyed a lovely evening meal couldnt fault it. Staff very friendly and helpful. Prices very resonable and couldnt really fault the pub. Would definitely visit again maybe try and stay over next time. Lovely views of lake windermere.

great food and excellent service

Lovely place that has kept the character of the building by providing small cosy dining areas with fires yet also providing a larger more modern area that can cater for larger numbers. 14 of us visited for a 50th birthday treat. The service was excellent, friendly, smiling staff who couldn’t do enough. For the main meal everyone was served at the same time even though there was a variety of meals with steaks being cooked to at least 5 different preferences, some mash instead of chips and a couple of children. It couldn’t be faulted. The meal was also reasonably priced and there was also a specials board available . I would highly recommend this place and I am look forward to visiting again
