Tower Bank Arms

Near Sawrey | Lake District | Cumbria

This charming historic Lakeland Inn nestles between Hawkshead and Lake Windermere in the tranquil village of Near Sawrey.

A small, warm and cosy retreat, free of distractions, restful and with charming simplicity. We create the 'Good Old Days' for you to remember with all the ingredients and the right recipe to make your visit truly memorable.

You will find comfort with a friendly professional service, quality fresh food and an extensive selection of traditional, award winning local Cumbrian real ales, organic soft drinks and wines.

Throughout all seasons a favourite place for many guests to visit, meet and stay.

Popular with locals and holiday makers alike, for many, the pub is a destination in itself but there are numerous reasons to visit this beautiful area. Walking woodland and fell is a favourite, fishing on Esthwaite Water, watching the wildlife or simply admiring the scenery and of course the many local attractions.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Let us help you relax, unwind and enjoy a taste of Lakeland Life.
