The Red Lion Inn, Hawkshead, Cumbria is a Lake District hotel and bed & breakfast situated close to Windermere, Keswick and Ambleside. It is a gem amongst lake district hotels, offering full board accommodation and bed and breakfast in the beautiful village of Hawkshead.
Here at the Red Lion Inn all of our guest rooms have their own individual charm and retain many of the original features of the 15th century Coaching Inn that it once was.
Each of our eight en~suite bedrooms (some still a little 'tired'), have their own distinct character with sloping ceilings, uneven floors & oak beams.
Traditional home cooked food is served in the bar & the dining room both at lunchtimes (between 12 noon & 2.30 p.m.) and evenings (from 6 p.m till 9 p.m). Sunday food is served 12 until 7 p.m.
Come & try Chef Dan's Brewers Pudding ~ proper suet pastry, Cumbrian beef that has cooked for hours in whichever one of the four cask ales that we have on at the time. Or the fish & chips (in our own beer batter) with 'real' mushy peas. Just the answer after a day on the fells!
Our menus change regularly and daily specials are on offer using the finest Cumbrian produce according to the season, succulent hill lamb and beef, fresh fish and seasonal vegetables. We also have vegetarian dishes.
The Inn offers well appointed Lake District holiday hotel accommodation and is perfect for those wishing to visit the villages of Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere, Keswick and Bowness. It is also a great place for a relaxing break in one of the quieter, yet more interesting corners of the Lake District.
