My husband and I were early for lunch and we were pleasantly greeted. We decided to have coffee in the conservatory to wait for the rest of the party. The coffee was excellent and properly served by a charming young lady. The conservatory, quite frankly, could have done with a good spring clean but no matter, we were here for lunch, not the décor. When the rest of our party arrived we were given menus and duly chose our first two courses. We were then shown into the wonderful dining room with a view of Lake Windermere. The napiery, crockery and cutlery were impeccable. The bread came in tiny, warm loaves and was delicious. Our meal was presented and cooked to perfection. I had lamb the way I like it, pink and tender and all members of the party deemed theirs was excellent too. The desserts were very interesting and went down very well. If I was being really picky I would have liked a little more care in their presentation. These days, other restaurants are competing hard and dessert presentation is almost the last thing you recall. Don't get in a huff chef but I did feel that you were rushing to get away. I didn't mention this to our party as they loved it all. A nice touch with the coffees and petit fours was that we ordered five coffees and we were brought six of each of the petit fours. Very much appreciated by the non coffee drinker. All in all, a most satisfactory pleasant and excellent value lunch. Thankyou.
