Hole in t' Wall
A cottage style building with stone flagged beer garden out front off a small lane near main car park on the Windermere to Bowness road (A592). Inside a narrow door with a small step down to the bar. There are 2 bars, Smithy's bar is down another, larger, step and is cozy and snug with a stained glass window on one wall and real beamed ceiling. Stone floors and real range fire keep you warm here. Seats are wooden tables and chairs. The first bar on entrance is long and narrow with a huge wooden bar facing you. Hops hang from the real beamed ceiling as does a collection of toilet pots(?). lots of stuffed 'real' animals adorn the walls and can be quite tasteless when you are eating (12-2 & 6-9). Old pictures also adorn the walls and the walls are wood panelled half way up. Seating is wooden settles and country kitchen tables and chairs. A fruit machine is at one end, a huge real fire at the other. This is a Hartley's pub and serves well kept XB, Robinsons Best, Frederick's and Old Tom at this visit. Food is good with vegetarian choice on the blackboard, the menu is constructed on the day by the landlady from fresh ingredients (eating recommended) - average price ?7 (whole pheasant ?10.95). A small beer garden at the front for summer. Toilets are difficult to negotiate for the disabled, but should be seen as they are majorly tiled. Upstairs there is another room with juke box for noisy people. 3 minutes from the lake and boat trip jetty. Access not good for wheelchairs (steps). No accommodation here.
There is a nice hotel within a stones throw of The Hole Int Wall called "the white house hotel" it is within easy staggering distance and has a small bar, restaurant, library. It is a child free hotel and has 12 lovely rooms all en suite. Visitors to this site can claim a 10% discount upon mentioning 'gran8634e' site when booking. Tel 015394 44803.
