1863, Pooley Bridge
Bar, Bistro and B&B Accommodation,
Ullswater the Lake District
BUILT DURING QUEEN VICTORIA’S REIGN IN 1863
For over 150 years, 1863 has quite literally been a cornerstone of the village. The property is set in the heart of Pooley Bridge, a pretty village on the shores of Ullswater in the Lake District. It was built first as the village blacksmith and later it became the post office.
REIMAGINED FOR THE 21st CENTURY
Now 1863 is more than a bar, bistro and B&B accommodation with seven elegant bedrooms; we are a family affair who enjoy getting the little things just right, welcoming guests back times and again to share in a slice of Lake District paradise.
1863 is more than just another Bed and Breakfast accommodation provider. Owners Anne and Mark offer their guests the quality of a boutique hotel but with the homely welcome of a traditional B&B. A relaxed, friendly atmosphere encourages visitors to take time to unwind in comfortable surroundings, enjoy locally-sourced, seasonal dishes cooked up by our skilled chef before retiring to the bar for a night cap or to bed for restful sleep.
We serve a good selection of beers, wines and spirits but what we’re really passionate about are our ‘beers of the month’. Mark works with a number of local breweries to showcase some of the region’s finest unsung beer heroes. Keep an eye out for our monthly recommendation on social media and on the good, old-fashioned blackboard outside!

As the end of August approaches, the bountiful summer season starts draws to a close with the last deliveries of Alan’s strawberries and blackcurrants. Without wishing the fine weather away, I can’t help but start to turn my mind to dishes with a slightly more autumnal feel. At this time of year, the hedgerows are starting […]
As the celebrated Wye Valley asparagus season comes to an end, our sumptuous, local strawberries are soaking up the Lake District sun while the yellow courgettes are bursting into bloom. We’re lucky enough to be supplied in the growing season by local green-fingered couple, Jean and Alan. They supply us with some of the tastiest […]
