The menu was superb, the main difficulty being what to choose as could have eaten every dish! Every one of the five courses was beautifully cooked and presented. The restaurant staff were friendly and efficient, nothing too much trouble. The restaurant is in a lovely setting with views of Ullswater and surrounding fells.

Stopped in for lunch, had a tomato soup. Mrs had an apple crumble. It was the best tomato soup ive ever had in my life. It was the perfect blend of acidic, creamy, superb. I think the head chef must really know his stuff. The meal reminded me of a meal I had at the white hart hotel in Harrogate... More

8 of us arrived without a booking, very hungry after travelling up all day. I approached the restaurant manager who was so accommodating and polite. He found us a table in the lounge. Nothing was too much trouble. The food arrived quickly and every single one of us found it delicious. We had mains and pudding, as well as drinks.... More

Beautiful scenery whilst eating a lovely home cooked minted lamb burger, staff were very welcoming and accommodating and the service was great. Humus starter was a bit bland and the chocolate sponge pudding was more like cake but everything else was lovely!

Having read the reviews on TA, I had expectations of an excellent fine dining experience but was disappointed. Attended a lunch function with a limited menu which sounded very interesting but on the whole, sadly failed to deliver. The treacle cured salmon was delicious but the advertised accompanying sorbet did not materialise. The crispy belly pork was not at all... More

We booked this from the excellent reviews on trip advisor. We were not sure exactly where we were going to, and when we arrived it's a grand and quite posh hotel, and were in jeans and fleeces for a bit of a walking weekend. So once we got over being the restaurant scruffs We sat and are an awesome standard... More
