UK's best beer garden is 'very cool' and located in a 'simply stunning' town

Next on the list is the Drunken Duck Inn.

Coming in third place, this pub is located in the quaint town of Ambleside, in Cumbria.

The pub has a total of 1,294 Tripadvisor reviews and a high four-star rating.

According to Eden’s Gate’s research, 711 of these reviews were rated five-star and only 63 with a low one-star rating, resulting in a disparity of 11.

Most five-star reviews were made during the months of June, July, and August, therefore it seems to be a beautiful place to enjoy the summer sun.

One Trip Advisor user called described the pub as “absolute perfection”. They continued: “Superb! A return visit after many years and it was even better than we remembered. I honestly can’t fathom the recent poor reviews as all four of our lunches were faultless – we only couldn’t agree on who had ordered best. The aubergine steak was a revelation, pork was ‘best ever had’, cod was perfection and suet pudding was divine. The soufflé was creamy loveliness but I was jealous of the gin cured salmon—that plate was heaven in every mouthful. I think someone must have been reviewing a different restaurant because the service was excellent, friendly and just the right amount of attention. Without doubt the highlight of our trip – actually felt it was a great value for the quality and quantity, we came away stuffed and supremely happy. Ignore those previous moaners, it is an unreserved recommendation from us!”

Trip Advisor user Jessica added: “A delightful meal on our way from Cartmel Fell to Troutbeck! We’d booked a few weeks in advance and I’m glad we did. The food was just stunningly good; the cod loin with peppercorn sauce is one of my favourite meals I think I’ve ever had. And the sticky toffee pudding was a revelation. Top marks for service as well.”
