Welcome to the Watermill Inn & Brewing Co
Ings Village, near Windermere in the beautiful Lake District      (satnav - LA8 9PY)
The Watermill is situated in the quiet village of Ings which
is 2 miles East of Windermere in the Lake District.

Our own award winning brewery is on the premises and brews excellent beers.
Positioned along a peaceful side road just off the A591
(Kendal to Windermere road), we are perfectly located
for touring the Lake District by car, bicycle, foot  or public transport.
We are surrounded by pleasant walks, cycle ways and of course the beautiful Lakeland fells.
Ambleside, Grasmere, Keswick and Hawkshead are within easy reach.

After a day out in the fabulous Lakes relax in one of our cosy, oak beamed bars, both with log fires. Sample some of our Chef's freshly prepared food and our extensive choice of beers, wines and whiskies.
          We are also dog and children friendly.

          If you are visiting the "Lakes" for a break
          or just for a day come and find out for yourselves.

          You will be most welcome.

Customer review on Trip Advisor
" Having passed the Watermill in the past when on a delivery run, I decided to see whether it would be up to my expectations. Therefore my wife and I decided on a two night stay in early November and we were not disappointed. In fact we had a brilliant time - at least 11 real ales, excellent food both at breakfast and in the evening and our room was lovely, clean and cosy. Will definately book again in the future and recommend to family and friends. "

Real Ale + Real Food + Real Atmosphere = Real Pub
12/12/15 Due to flooding we regret to say we are closed at the moment whilst we dry out!
In 25 years we have never had the shear force of water last weekend it was terrible as no doubt you have seen on the news.
Water flooded all of downstairs ruining our beautiful Watermill carpets and the kitchen floor.
Upstairs remained thankfully dry!
Our staff have been kept busy tidying up the mess and dehumidifiers are everywhere
Please keep an eye on the web site for our opening date.
We look forward to welcoming you back in soon.
Expected Re-Opening Date
Friday 12th February 2016
More information to follow. Thank you
