Had dinner tonight, the mushroom bruschetta was delicious. Husband had burger which moist and tasty, my smoked roast chicken was just lovely. Huge chocolate dessert not too sweet and very moorish. The gin choices were excellent. Would highly recommend.

Visited here for lunch during our visit to Bowness-on-Windermere. The inside of the restaurant/cafe bar was very cosy and welcoming, however the door was propped open by menus, which meant you could hear the traffic from the very busy road outside and caused a draught....More
