Newby Bridge & Lakeside

At the southern end of Lake Windermere adjoining the River Leven, Newby Bridge is a small village, with a good selection of accommodation including hotels and B&B's.

Food & Drink

A centre-piece for Newby Bridge is the striking riverside 17 century coaching Inn/hotel with its pretty riverside setting, in which to enjoy a tasty restaurant or bar meal. If weather permits though, what could be better than taking a lazy lunch and glass of wine on the riverside terrace, watching all manner of water-birds swim by. There are a few hotels either in Newby bridge itself or a short distance drive away. Fine dining can either be enjoyed with a riverside or spectacular lakeside setting, serving incredible food made by excellent chefs. The service is always friendly whether you chose to eat in the restaurant or the bar. Why not try a 6-course taster menu for an exquisite culinary experience? The Swan at Newby Bridge

The café experience is a little spread out, with cafes just a short distance drive away either at Backbarrow or Low Newton. There’s the promise of legendary scones and the best Sunday lunch (!) to be enjoyed at a café on the banks of the river Leven. What better way to enjoy your lunch or afternoon tea, sitting out on the terrace overlooking the river, providing it’s warm of course, otherwise there’s cosy surroundings inside. Or have your morning coffee and home-baked cakes in the quirky surroundings of an old barn with log burners dotted around the place, should it be a bit chilly. There are extensive menus to try for lunch and the food is always inventive and delicious.

You won’t find pubs in the village itself, although the hotels have excellent bars in relaxed surroundings. However, you only have to go up the road a few kilometres to villages like Bouth and Lowick Green to enjoy traditional country pubs. Warm glowing fires in winter, or a patio in summer looking out over open countryside, provides the perfect atmosphere to enjoy an excellent range of daily specials - and for those who like their ale, try the Taster 3 third pints of ale!
