Enjoyed a lovely weekend in the Lakes and experienced excellent hospitality from the team at the Lamplighter Dining Rooms. The menu looks deceptively simple and one could be forgiven for thinking that they offer pub grub only. Don't be deceived - the food is delicious and is certainly NOT pub grub. The ingredients were of high quality and each of... More

My partner Anne and I stayed at the Lamplighter from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd May and were impressed on several levels - so much so that we felt compelled to write a review. Warmly welcomed by James and shown to our room which was large and very comfortable. The windows in our room (no 8) are single glazed so... More

We booked very last minute through Booking.com as we were travelling back down South from a wedding. As a hotelier myself I thought, based on the Booking.com review score of 8.3, it would be a good enough hotel. On arrival there was a lady filling in a registration card and a gent in black came through and spoke to her... More

As we have a dog, we have to choose carefully where we stay and the choice can be a little limited. We stayed over the weekend at the Lamplighter, James gave us a warm welcome and the staff were really friendly and helpful during our stay, really made us (and the dog) feel welcome. The room was nice, very neat... More

Our room was on the first floor, with windows on to the car park and the main street. The bed was huge and comfortable, but the room itself, while clean and well serviced, had seen better days. The floorboards felt distinctly weak in one place, and one of the window blinds broke the first time we used it. Also the... More

This was our second visit to the Lamplighter. We had a standard room, the bed was enormous and extremely comfortable. The decor is good, the corridors had recently painted. Breakfast was lovely, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only comments we would make is that the furniture in the room is a bit jaded and could do with... More

Of course it lives up to its usual fabulous food however our waiters Paul & Geoff were simply brilliant! Professional yet friendly informative about the... More
