The oldest pub in Bowness and a true hidden gem of the Lakes, The New Hall Inn - best known as the ‘The Hole in t' Wall’ - was built in 1612. Situated in the heart of Bowness within easy reach of the stunning hills and Lakes.

As the oldest pub in Bowness, and a real hidden gem, the New Hall Inn (as it was originally named) soon became known as The Hole in t' Wall thanks to the gap in the brickwork that was knocked through so that the blacksmith could be served a beer while hard at work.

These days, of course, it's not just large men with hammers who can enjoy a pint of Robinsons' real ale. Built in 1612, nothing much has changed, apart from electricity and central heating, and that's the way we like it!

Dripping with heritage and a great tale to tell - from Thomas Longmire (the champion wrestler) to Charles Dickens - the pub has a charm and character you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

The Hole provides a wide range of cask ales, good pub grub served all day and an atmosphere that's second to none. There is a patio/beer garden area with heating and a function room for larger parties.

Situated in the heart of Bowness, the pub is within easy reach of the stunning hills and lake.
