Tweedies is set in a beautiful location, the grounds are well kept and spacious. The hotel is very warm and welcoming, the rooms are set out lovely,with for us complimentary gin and tonics. The food was lovely and the portions generous, it was better to have your food in the hotel rather than the pub side as this side gets extremely busy and it's only small, walkers with dogs are made very welcome and after a long walk to come and have a drink by a real fire is great.

We visit Tweedies every time we're walking in and around the Grasmere area. Staff are always welcoming and accommodating, always happy to welcome our dog too. They have an amazing selection of beers, 10 hand pull and 7 draft I think plus a fridge full of other craft beers. The food has always been good as well. We we're in yesterday and had a few pints of Urban Assault from Anarchy Brew Co, Perfect! We will visit again in October when we're on holiday for a week. More...

Tweeties was lit AF!! From the outside it looks like a quiet "Hot Fuzz" style village pub. Don't be fooled. This place gets crazy. Best night in Ambleside fo show!


David Williams

19 January 2017

Nice bar and real friendly staff, absolutely fantastic choice of ales to sample. Went in with my wife who was in her wheelchair and nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Picked a drink at the bar just by random choice and was charged £8 a pint which seemed a bit steep. But I thought well don't complain I picked it, enjoy it , which I did, it was called Smash and Grab and tasted wonderful. When I looked back at the bar there was a huge sign advertising the drink at £8 a pint , so no complaints from me. Only regret was not trying the food but after the beer I was in no fit state lol. on the whole it's a very nice dog friendly bar with great staff, yes a bit more expensive than what I normally pay but worth it.

Unfortunately we only make it to the Lakes once or twice a year - and no visit would be complete without a walk over from Langdale to Tweedies. Our dog Scooby knows the route off by heart !!!! As usual the food and drinks were amazing. Wonderful surroundings, delicious food, beer range to die for and the staff are so helpful it's awesome. I truly love Tweedies - thanks so much ���� More...

Arrived at the Dale Lodge hotel late afternoon, glad that Tweedies was part of the complex as most other bars around Grasmere were either empty or closed.

Our first night in Grasmere we discovered most establishments require pre booking or were residents only. We were directed to Tweedies. We returned thereafter every night. The Black Dragon cider was terrific, the staff helpful & fun , the ambience mellow but pleasantly busy, and the food... Good pub grub. I'm coeliac and vegetarian and was limited to just one dish on the menu, Camembert for two, bread replaced with hand cooked chips. Had that with a side of delicious green veg (fine green beans, kale, cabbage and peas) every night and looked forward to it at the end of every fell walk. The red mulled wine chutney is like nothing I've ever tasted and I was in the chef trade for a bit, got a bite of star anise or aniseed which filled my mouth with flavour, wonderful. You have customer service and good food perfected, please never change. I love this place and would have a table with my name on it if I could . So glad we found you Tweedies! Thank you for the happy memories and delicious eats after hard walking days � More...
