1863. Pooley Bridge restaurant with rooms.
Many people come to The Lake District for the food as well as the scenery. I ask the guests, more than they ask me, where to go. A very popular restaurant around Ullswater they’ve mentioned recently has been 1863 at Pooley Bridge.
With around 400 different gins and an eclectic mix of wines, beers, spirits, food and drink, Chestnut House is fast becoming the place to shop in The Lakes.
Great name, great place. Just off J40 on your way to/from Ullswater. Fuel, shops, art, events, information, cafes, cinema. I use this place quite often and would recommend a visit.
