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.


Stay safe out there everyone, we are opening again...


Due to the new restrictions announced by the Government, we currently opening again throughout the month of December for Friday and Saturdays only. We will be open from 3.00pm on Friday and closing as per the government regulations at 11.00pm, (last orders are at 10.00pm), Saturdays we will be opening from 12.00 noon until 11.00pm (last orders at 10.00pm). Unfortunately we cannot serve you just drinks, you will need to have a meal with the drinks. The Government are still working out what is the actual requirement on this. We will be adhering to this advice. 

We are serving a shorten menu which will be available on the specials board in the restaurant. We may be publishing online later.

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. Be sure to check in here or check our Facebook page for more info.

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.
