A SOUTH Lakes cafe and bar has made the top spot on review site TripAdvisor not just for Windermere, but for the whole of Cumbria.

The Smith Bar on Victoria Street in Windermere was opened last year by husband and wife team Rob & Sarah and has developed a big local following.

They attribute their success in part to their delicious pizzas, but also to their hospitality.

"We try to greet everyone who comes through the door and we are genuinely delighted to welcome all of our guests with the same hospitality we would offer at our home," said Rob.
