At the end of the Grasmere & Rydal walk is The Badger Bar. This is the bar of The Glen Rothay Hotel (which sounds rather Scottish, but isn't). It's quite a nice hotel, and The Badger Bar is lovely, and especially the large beer garden at the side. The beers are "real ales" with a changing selection. Coniston Bluebird is regularly available, and a selection of Jennings.

Where would Grasmere be without Wordsworth? Well it is a beaufitul town anyway so I'm sure it would survive :-)
by William Wordsworth
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the tree,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the starts that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of the bay;
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
