Flowers and candlight put you in a receptive mood to enjoy the gustatory treat to come. We really enjoyed our first dinner of duck and steak, but were overwealmed by the dinner on our second night, the black bass. Superb! If you like ceviche, do not miss theirs. At breakfast, the jams and marmalades are delicious, but don't miss the... More

The food was outstanding, well presented and absolutely delicious. I have never tasted such tender pork fillet and the flavour of the rib-eye steak was wonderful.

After staying at a 5 star hotel in York which we really enjoyed, we didn't know what to expect in the Lake District. The Cedar Manor hotel exceeded expectations and is a truly special place. It is cozy and intimate but with great style. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. The food is outstanding! The owners, Jonathan and Caroline,... More

A perfect stay in every way at Cedar Manor in celebration of my friend's 70th birthday. Nothing more could have been asked of Jonathan and Caroline to make our stay more comfortable and welcoming. We loved the cosy comfort of our room and the hotel in general, all refurbished to a tasteful and pleasingly high standard. The restaurant also deserves... More

We visited here for our Saturday evening meal during our weekend break in Ambleside. We wanted something special with great food. The ambience was wonderful. Very romantic and peaceful and rare to find this classic environment with most restaurants turning into modern noisy cafe types. The food was very high standard and the service was exceptional.

The service was excellent and we felt very pampered. Excellent food and great choice on the menu which was a fixed price for 3 courses. We relaxed in the lounge beforehand and to finish with coffee.

Description
First built in 1854 as a private country retreat and housing an unmissable 200 year old cedar tree in its grounds, tradition and a sense of place are important to both the look and the food at The Cedar Manor Hotel and Restaurant. You will find Cedar Manor offers a seasonally changing a la carte and table dhote menu of classic British food on which all produce is sourced from providers based in the surrounding Lake District. Open to guests and non-residents, one might want to relax with a book in the cosy hotel bar and take in the views of the nearby Lake Windermere before taking a seat in the restaurant which has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes.
