Half way round Derwent Water and off course due to flooding we arrived at the Borrowdale Gates again. Even though we were soaking they welcomed us in for a light lunch. We had two soups, both full of flavour, and decorated artistically, a toasted sandwich and a proper chicken caesar salad - by which I mean all the correct ingredients... More

The service here is excellent and the food good. Lots of local produce well cooked in a classic style, with the occasional modern twist.

We planned to stop at the Borrowdale gates for lunch on a big walk. There was a choice of two soups on the lunch menu, so we had one each, and shared a toasted sandwich. Each soup was excellent, tasty, hot, and full of flavour. Butternut sqwuash and French Onion, along with hot sweetened bread, almost like a teacake .... More

Celebrating a birthday, 6 of us went for Sunday lunch. It is a three course lunch plus coffee and mints for £23.50. The quality of the chef's work is quite outstanding and competes very favourably with the other top restaurants in this wonderful valley. All the starters, including quail which I enjoyed, were beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. There were... More

We had a family gathering for Sunday Lunch to celebrate my sister and brother in laws Ruby Wedding anniversary! It was just perfect! The surroundings the place itself and the meal were all faultless! The staff are attentive and make you feel at home as soon as you arrive! Roll on another reason to go again! Thank you Borrowdale Gates.

Wonderful fine dining with excellent choice. The Sunday evening menu is not as extensive, basically Sunday lunch type food only, which was a bit disappointing but still excellent for what it was. The restaurant offers wonderful views as you eat.

Had two 3-course dinners as part of a DBB package. Faultless. Food and service were great and there's a good wine list too.
