Description: If the Lakes are the jewel in the crown of Britain’s countryside then Miller Howe must be the Queen. Why? Because this restaurant is wearing that jewel well. With the most stunning views possible over the beautifully English Lake Windermere, you probably wouldn’t notice if you were sat on a polyester sofa and served up a Kwiksave ready meal. However, take your eyes off the windows for just a moment and you’ll notice that the surroundings are comfortable, good looking and with somehow more than a little taste of Italy. Although A La Carte options are available, most diners will delight in the Set Menu which boasts the very finest dishes using quality British ingredients.

The good TA reviews lured me here. On arrival (on a Friday evening) it was pretty quiet we were not granted to go straight to our table as it was their custom to serve canapes in the lounge (why do places do this?), a rather dreary musty room in a drab looking building, whereas the dining room was quite smart, light and attractive. After being seated in the dining room there came a tasty amuse bouche. Our starters were one dish of scallops with chicken wings (a new combination for me) and one broschetta. We both chose fish mains from their fixed price menu - one sea bream and one salmon. The sea bream came with brocolli which proved impossible to cut with the fish knife but this was the only criticism. The chocolate dessert was very good, as was the custard tart with fruits. So, we had a surprisingly good meal in a lovely dining room with very good service in an otherwise tired and rather dingy building - totally unexpected from the initial perception.

We felt like royalty and in fact the Queen of England had popped in for tea a few yrs ago! Gorgeous views over Lake Windermere to the mountains beyond. The food was delicious and the service was absolutely faultless. Attentive yet not pushy, helpful and sweet staff. I absolutely loved this place to eat and will definitely return next year.

We have noticed this restaurant when on holiday in the past but decided it was a bit expensive. This time hoever we hadn't spent our holiday budget so went for lunch. £25 a head for three courses. Service was good as you would expect. Tthe lunch menu was a bit limited but we opted for salmon and chicken breast which were both delicious. The coffee and petits fours at £5 was a bit pricey we felt.

Had lunch here yesterday and what a treat it was! We had drinks in the lounge which was beautifully decorated in keeping with it's Edwardian style and had a wonderful view overlooking the lake. The restaurant didn't disappoint either. We had a delicious three course meal which was artfully presented with great service and another wonderful view of the lake and the every changing weather.
