Cumbria Reports

Grasmere, Cumbria

Review of Grasmere by Bob on May 22nd, 2006
Forget Tweedies or The Lamb Inn, tucked away on the end of the Wordsworth Hotel is the real locals bar with real people just enjoying a laugh and a quiet drink. This is where the bar staff go to drink,that says it all really !!!!!!! Food gets prepared in the same kitchen as the Wordsworth Hotel with all its awards, again that says it all. It may take a few visits before people speak too much, but when they do, its been worth the wait. Locals quiz on a friday, but dont take up all the seats, I´m not gonna stand-up.
