Whether you’re getting ready for a day’s hiking or have worked up an appetite after wandering lonely as a cloud, you’ll appreciate The Waterhead Inn’s hearty helpings of delicious home-cooked fare.
Offering freshly prepared and cooked Cumbrian and British pub classics, look forward to mouth-watering dishes, full of local provenance at every bite, while you look on to one of the best views in the Lakes.
Fuel up for an action-packed day, or simply take your time relaxing into the day with a full Cumbrian breakfast while you enjoy the views. The Waterhead Inn breakfasts can be enjoyed whether you’re staying with us or you’re popping in for a great breakfast and the best lake views.
Drop by for brunches and lunches, while evening meals including sublime puddings at The Waterhead Inn as the sun sets over the lake are not be missed.
The Waterhead Inn at Ambleside serves outstandingly good, home-cooked Sunday roasts from 12 noon until 5pm each week. Think mouth-watering, hand-carved, slices of juicy British beef, pork or turkey complete with all the trimmings, crunchy roast potatoes, homemade Yorkshire puddings, and freshly cooked vegetables, all topped with delicious hot gravy.
