Was slightly disappointed by the menu, not sure why, I just thought it would be different. The staff though young were brilliant, communicative, friendly, attentive and seemed genuinely wanting you to enjoy your time there. Would eat there again. We booked for 9.30 and sat down on time. No rushing given time to enjoy our meal.

My partner and I had stayed at the hotel and eaten at the restaurant before, so when we returned to the Lakes we decided that we had to return to the restaurant as well. We both thoroughly enjoyed our mains and they were cooked to perfection- the meat was always tender and the flavour was fantastic. Our desserts took a... More

We were staying at the hotel and had booked dinner at Oscars restaurant, the restaurant is as the hotel, friendly staff and good food. The pies are the finest around so good we came back for a second night, we would highly recommend. Only wish we could get them down here in Dorset.

Four day stay. Four nights at oscars. Fabulous food, fabulous people and amazing pies. More than a simple hotel restaurant. The chilli starter sounds hum drum but is a palatine winner and the mixed bag sausages are great. Simple things made extraordinary after a hard days work. Highly recommended.
