          Called in for a quick pint while staying in Ambleside. Lovely old fashioned pub but not many seats in the bar area. Interesting building though, had a nice pint. The food did smell good but didn't eat here as we were eating elsewhere later.

          I read on our booking that there is no parking available. Is this right? And if so, where can we park? We're here for 2 nights and will be doing a lot of walking, not driving. So the car will stay in one place.
