Went for a Easter walk with my family and ended up calling in for a drink. We asked if they could fit us in for Sunday lunch as we had the dogs with us. We were seated in the bar area and managed to have plenty of room for our big dogs which was a bonus!
3 beef - Plated Sunday lunch it was fabulous. Thank you for the wonderful service and beautiful food we will be back.

After visiting Windermere for a few years now we have always struggled to find a good Resturant then we stumbled against this hidden gem.

Food was fantastic very fancy but super tasty, service really was ok point we were looked after.

I would re visit when we are back in the area.

Came on our first night of a four night visit and the eight of us were placed in the middle room.

Good is presented nicely but there is a massive issue with the chef loving salt.

I personally do not like lots of salt and the food had way too much.

I had a fish special, plaice. Cooked in but and over done. Fish Neath was crispy, not sit. Fish swimming in butter.

We wouldn't go here again in the lakes. There's much better alternatives for much better prices and food. One such establishment just to the side in the form of a pub.

Stayed hear for a three day break over Christmas check in is at a public bar not a reception so if someone is getting a drink well you understand very poor set up went downstairs on each morning for breakfast which is half self service half served to you ! The room itself looks quite nice until you look properly last night's leftover food various sorts on the floor carpets Base of the tables ect ect do they have a cleaner ? Ordered full English which fine good quality products very hot and tasty. Stayed in the dearest room in the hotel very poor lighting in the room you have to pull the blinds down which makes the matter worse if you leave the blinds up your in a goldfish bowl for all to see including the bathroom which clearly needs frosted glass putting in the tv is well pathetic to say the least wonky unstable in a dark corner you have to drag it to the middle of the room to watch leaving various amounts of cabling exposed not a safe environment at all bed was comfy enough. first time used the shower it wasn't working complained only for the person i complained to trying to fob me off with an excuse that it's the room at the top of the hotel the pressure supply from outside is the problem God knows how they get water to the top of a skyscraper get it fixed i said miraculously it was when we returned must of turned the pressure up outside well back to the hotel oops nearly forgot a £12 bottle of prosecco was left in the room let's move onto Christmas Lunch sat us in the middle room i think table for two mite as well of had our lunch in a bus station a party of 18 opposite say know more there were a few other things which it's not worth mentioning or maybe i would of mentioned all of this to some senior management if ide of seen any or been introduced to any in the three days instead of multinational staff who are oblivious to your needs checked out after having our last breakfast in a smoke filled room which stank perhaps make the coal fire up before service starts they could of easily because they certainly weren't cleaning the floors can't wait for your reply I'm sure you'll come up with some fantastic excuses instead accepting the constructive criticism which I've been honest about there's something about the lake district that know matter where you go the service is very poor there living on the thousands of tourists that pass through year on year and just don't give a hoot what they charge for what they supply will i stay hear again sadly not the management really need to take control of things.
