Welcome to The Lily. With a great selection of local cask ales, delicious wines, hearty food and unique atmosphere, The Lily bar in Ambleside will offer you a perfect night out in the Lakes.

Due to the new restrictions announced by the Government, we currently are only taking reservations until 8.30pm. You will have a relaxing meal and / or drinks and have time to enjoy your surroundings. We can only take bookings of groups of up to 6 people. Under the new restrictions last orders for food will be at 8.30pm and last orders at the bar will be at 9.30pm. We are bound by law to have completed our service by 10.00pm. Why not consider an earlier slot to book your dinner?

If you are coming for a meal why not pre-order your your meal, you will be given instructions in the email that we send you as confirmation. This will give you more time to enjoy the surroundings. 

We’re big fans of live music and showing off local talent but we are unable at the moment to offer live music, comedy and quiz events due to the Covid-19 restrictions, these are however gradually being lifted and we are looking to start our Wednesday quiz night in early September. Be sure to check in here or check our Facebook page for more info.

We are taking bookings up to 8.30pm for drinks or dining. We are now taking bookings, click here to book. When you book you will be asked to pay a non refundable £10 deposit per person, this will be deducted from your final bill. You will also be sent a link in the email that will allow you to pre-book you meals and wine. By pre-booking this will allow you more time to sit and enjoy your drinks whilst your food is freshly prepared for you on arrival. When you order your meal in advance, you will not be asked to pay for the food prior to arriving and dining with us.

Under government advice we can only offer table service for the foreseeable future. Please be patient on entering. We have implemented a one way system and you will be checked in at the front door. Please be prompt for your booking as we are adhering to a 90 minute time slot allocation.


 Whilst you can drop in just for a drink, this will be on a first come first served basis. If we have a table free we will allocate this to you. If you would like to guarantee a table why not book one here. These are available to book just for drinks, before 6.30pm and after 9.30pm. You will be charged a non refundable deposit but this will be taken off your drinks bill.

 Why not book a table for a meal, we have spaced our tables to allow social distancing and we are operating a table only service.

Christmas and New Year - Please note we are currently not taking bookings for the Christmas and New year. We may review this nearer the time. Please check back for more info later.
