    We took our dog with us to this pet friendly hotel.
    We had never took a dog to a hotel before but our stay was brilliant.
    Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
    The woods at the back of the hotel are lovely to walk through.

    Relax in the comfort of this famous traditional coaching inn, with a reputation for the warmest of welcomes, fine food served in a superb restaurant complemented by an extensive wine cellar, and an eclectic mix of beautifully comfortable rooms and suites.

    The Wild Boar itself is famous - historically for being the site where Sir Richard de Gilpin is said to have slain the last wild boar! Nowadays however, the bar is adored for its classic British hearty menu and emphasis on seasonal, local ingredients.

    Winner of the Cumbria Pub of the Year award in 2014 and receiver of Visit England’s 2015 Pub of the Year silver award, The Wild Boar’s smokehouse and grill is a popular stop for Windermere locals and visitors alike. With its culmination of traditional décor, time-honoured ‘coaching inn’ ambience and friendly service, it is a home-from-home delight that’s certain to entice guests and induce a desire to linger.

    The Wild Boar possesses character in abundance, with its hearty yet modern British menu and an open kitchen that brings a little theatre to the dining experience. Oak-beamed and cosy by candlelight, the restaurant embraces a passion for tradition and excellence; from head chef Miroslav Likus making full use of Lakeland’s natural larder to the regularly changing menu.
