The Hole int' Wall

Just 40meeters for the front door of New Hall Bank is the wonderful old public house located on Lowside, Bowness, "The Hole Int' Wall" dates from around 1650.Thomas Longmire, a noted wrestler of his era, was landlord of the inn between 1852 and 1862. The New Hall Inn gained its pub licence in 1866. today of course it is a busy, friendly pub with great staff and wonderful pub food. why not call in for a pint and a ploughman's lunch, and in winter sit back and enjoy the roaring fire . then staff will make you feel right at home. no reservation required


Jacksons Bistro

Another favourite of ours, Jacksons is just wonderful. a small bistro about 5 min walk from New Hall Bank , the food is just quality, the staff are friendly and helpful, why not give it a go if you have a birthday or anniversary to celebrate in sure that Andrew or Trever will accommodate you. Booking is advised call to make a reservation: 01539 446464


Villa Positano

Hidden away down a little ally on Ash Street you can easily miss it. little gem, Villa, is a typical Italian restaurant, with a touch of Positano added by Angelo and Claire, the ambiance of this place takes you right back to Italy with amazing Italian home cooked food and my husband says pizza is better then being in Italy and you don't have to travel so far. again only a small place to fills up quickly, so booking is advised. all to make a reservation: O1539 445663



This is a little further , Windermere village , about 25 min walk up hill, or a 5 min taxi ride. but you will not be disappointed. just on the main road opposite the garage. This British / French bistro. is just a little different for the area. so if you like escargot, of something with a little garlic what not give Francine's a try. Always a good selection of fish on the menu. booking is recommended call to make a reservation: 01539 444088


The Country Hut

Small but great, this little gem is situated just next to the Peter rabbit shop of ash street. Nancy's cocktails are just yummy , give her a go and make your own mind up or you could just sit watching people go by and enjoy a good cup of coffee, of even one of her delicious cream teas. What ever you decide, I'm sure you will enjoy. no reservation needed
