The Good Sport

Beer on the sun terraceThe Good Sport is on Stock Lane, on the approach to Grasmere village as you come in from the south. We are ideally situated close to the main coach park - a convenient stopping point between the village centre and the Wordsworth Centre at Dove Cottage.

A sun terrace overlooks the river Rothay, with views towards Helm Crag and Alcock Tarn. A few more tables are located near the front door, and theres plenty of all-weather seating inside. We are dog-friendly!

We serve a selection locally brewed beers from Grasmere Brewery, which is located 100m away. We also serve a range of hot & cold drinks, wine & spirits. 

Whether you want a good breakfast (starting at 9am), a light lunch, an evening meal (last food orders 8pm), or just tea and cakes at any time through the day, we aim to make your time in Grasmere more enjoyable. 

In one half of the bar there is a widescreen TV showing major sports games via Sky Sports. The other half has plenty of seats for those who prefer a quieter atmosphere.
