Called in Late Sunday afternoon to see if they could fit us in for that evening, which they did. We had the steak & wine deal (2 ribeye steaks & a bottle of wine for £40) and were not disappointed. Great steaks, cooked by yourselves on hot stones & brilliant, unobtrusive service. Will definitely call again next time we are... More

Opens at 5. We were starving so we had starters and a main. The house Shiraz was 50 foot Shiraz and fab. The Sav Blanc was nice too. We tempura prawns, garlic creamy mushrooms, potato skins and French onion soup. Massive portions and well cooked, good solid home cooking. Followed by chicken chasseur, pork goulash, salmon tagliatelle, and a Cajun... More

Dined here early Saturday evening, it was a truly great experience. The staff were very attentive & welcoming. The restaurant is cosy & in keeping with the 'log house' theme. We had the steak special, 2 stone cooked sirloins, including side dishes & a bottle of wine for £40. It was an excellent meal, all finished off with a white... More

Had been up the old man of Coniston for a hike and where making our way back home and just happen to come across this place, and they happened to have one table free as they where fully booked which after tasting the food I could see why.

From the outside this places looks fantastic! Quirky and eye catching with an unusual charm about it. Inside is the same. Tables set nicely with a warm and cosy atmosphere. The sound system could do with being looked at as it sounded tinny and was harsh on the ear. It might also be worth sorting out an appropriate play list... More

What a beautiful and intimate restaurant this is. The staff were lovely and helpful. Myself and Chris had a steak on the stone and my partner and sue had rack of lamb.... oh my they were absolutely delicious and extremely good quality, more so we couldn't fit a pudding in. Would definitely go again next time we are up here.

Tried to book an early table for a family of 4. Two adults, 2 children. What followed was a very awkward explanation as to why they were not willing to accomodate us while we had our 2 children with us. No kids menu and not licensed apparently!? Which is either untrue or they have been breaking the law previously as... More

Dear Lindsay H To be totally honest we are baffled by your review.

Our cheery waitress greeted us warmly and all went well from there on. The restaurant was busy but service was excellent, food hot and delicious and the view of lambs gambolling in the field behind highly entertaining. Portions very generous which was almost a shame as the puddings were lovely.
