Nice pub for food and casual drinks. Track and Trace in place, sanitiser to hand and screens (old doors-quirky) in between tables. Felt safe. Outdoor tables too with parasols which are big enough keep you dry when it pours with rain. Love Grasmere, nicest part of the Lakes in our opinion

Used the on line booking app so we could have a table after we'd been for a walk around Rydal water. Everything was very well arranged and we felt very safe at our table. The staff were excellent and the food and ales from the brewery were first class. Will definitely go back when covid restrictions allow.

We booked to eat on our 1st night of 3 at Grasmere, we ate there every night as the food and drink was so good. Felt very comfortable, with room between tables and for food and drink ordering. Staff on the ball ensuring social distancing was adhered too. Thankyou very much to all staff, very much enjoyed The Good Sport.
