the Catalan fish stew was excellent. Grasmere is more expensive than other parts of the lake district, so quite expensive. Fanastic chips

We had a great time. The food was tasty, staff were friendly and the atmosphere was decent. Only gripe was we came for the Liverpool match and no sport was on TV. Bit of a shame as we'd assumed it was a sports bar because of its name
