Take an Ullswater steamer, a pint of Thwaites by the fire - eat heartily bistro-style, soaking up the big watery views

In the middle of Pooley Bridge, behind its smartly traditional façade, the Crown Inn has had a stylish makeover. Indoor spaces have a contemporary country inn feel: stable-style stalls and separate chairs and tables; wooden floors and plaid carpeting; open fires and wood-burning stoves, and the dramatic statement of a glazed rear wall separating the dining room from the great outdoors. Ground and first floor terraces (with heated, sheltered ‘pods’) make the most of lovely river views backed by woodland and high fells – Ullswater Steamers ply from a pier a few hundred metres away. There’s a whole range of drinks, including Thwaites cask ales of course. Family-friendly and modern bistro-style dishes - like grilled sea bass and lamb shank with puy lentils - are served by attentive staff.
