Good Pub Guide Recommended
Many people here are repeat customers keen to try the fantastic range of changing real ales. At peak times, there may be up to 16 beers on handpump - including their own brews: Watermill A Bit'er Ruff, Blackbeard, Collie Wobbles, Dogth Vader, Isle of Dogs, Windermere Blonde, Ruff Justice and W'ruff Night - plus guests such as Coniston Bluebird, Cumbrian Legendary Loweswater Gold, Fell Robust Porter and Unsworths Yard Cartmel Peninsula and Crusader Gold. Also, scrumpy cider, a huge choice of foreign bottled beers and 40 malt whiskies. The building, cleverly converted from a wood mill and joiner's shop, has plenty of character and the bars have an assortment of chairs, padded benches and solid oak tables, bar counters made from old church wood, open fires and interesting photographs and amusing cartoons by a local artist. The spacious lounge bar, in much the same traditional style as the other rooms, has rocking chairs and a big open fire; darts and board games. There are seats in the gardens and lots to do nearby. Dogs may get free biscuits and water. It's also a smashing place to stay.
