Went here from trip advisor recommendations. Good pub with lots of choice of drinks. Food menu has got an okay selection, there were a few things unavailable. When food came my partner got the large burger- it was huge. He said it was very nice. I got the hunters chicken which was okay, however it didn't have any bbq sauce... More

Visited here for tea on first evening at Windermere and the food was delicious. Before we ordered the very helpful bar staff told us what was not available which is better than looking at the menu and the one thing you fancy they don't have. We both opted for hunters chicken. This is probably the best I've had- chicken was... More

Chosen via Trip A as close to where we stayed and dog-friendly. Perfectly ok as a pub albeit a little worn at the edges. Not so good if viewed as a restaurant. Steak and ale pie looked an impressive size but was in effect a beef stew with a pastry lid. Served with chips rather than the requested mash and... More

The Grey Walls is a fantastic Restaurant. Good food and drink. You can watch sport on the TVs or play snooker/pool in a room off to the side. The atmosphere is good. The owners and bar staff are friendly. The locals are friendly and will chat with you. The food is not expensive and you do seem to get a... More

We frequently visit Windermere, and whenever we do we pop into Grey Walls. There is nothing better than kicking back with a paper, right next to the fire, and enjoying an ice cold pint (or 2.5) of Addlestones Cloudy Cider. It truly is the quintessential English pub.

So hard to find a truly dog friendly accommodation/restaurant especially when you've got a Great Dane. Staff were warm and welcoming. I stayed one night, accommodation was clean and comfortable. Food was great value for money. Would definitely revisit.

This pub has always welcomed us and given us great pub food when we turn up unannounced. Sometimes run out of stuff but that shows how popular it is! Only bookings taken if over 12 people so first come first served! Food always good and the pooch is more than welcomed!

Found this place by chance, walking through Windermere and time was getting on! With 2 dogs sometimes you options can be limited when you don't know the area, we ordered ribs and Camembert for starter both lovely, then lasagne and gammon for the mains, the lasagne was gorgeous, full flavour and the gammon looked just as nice, the veg could...
