Good food, lovely service, everything very well done! A little expensive, but the food was great. Good for a special fine dining experience!

We came here for a booked meal only, as we were staying elsewhere in Grasmere.

Upon walking in there is a sense of grandeur, however, it was more so that of a dated, historic feel than opulence. Jackets were taken from us and we were lead into the sitting room to go through the menu, with other guests around us doing the same. Drinks were ordered and delivered in a timely manner.

It was quiet. Very quiet. One could almost forgive it for being a library it was that quiet.
Staff were attentive and welcoming, but the silent ambience was deafening. Guests, including ourselves, appeared to feel awkward in having a conversation.

The food was lovely, albeit a la carte. We can't fault the food, which was relatively good value for money.

In an unexpected surreal moment, it appeared nobody had advised the staff that the [only] unisex toilet for guests to use was broken, in that it wasn't flushing. My wife pointed this out as I made my way to use it. I fixed it and advised the staff to the issue after the fact. There was some smiles and giggles about it as it's not everyday a guest fixes something that should have been picked up during routine maintenance.

Digressing, my wife and I discussed the evening there on the way back into Grasmere town, concluding it's somewhere one would go once to eat. It's not somewhere we would stay, either.

Visited as non-residents and we had a very good four course meal. Owners and staff very welcoming and lovely to finish the evening with a coffee by the log fire

This is one of the best restaurants in the Lake District. The food is second to none - imaginative, well presented and delicious. We have visited this place now for many years when we are in the Lakes and count the days to our next visit.

The breakfasts are special but the evening meal takes the plaudits, truly stunning food. Finish the evening with a whiskey in the comfortable and relaxing lounge.
