After waiting a very long time for drinks had to order a second time, seems the first drinks order had been forgotten! But our steaks were wonderful. Juicy and melted apart under the knife. Such a shame front of... More

Exciting menu with loads to choose from, including food smoked on the premises. Great fillet steak and smoked boar, cooked perfectly, and delicious local cheeses for afters with a lovely dessert wine and tawny port. Let down on that night by poor service; otherwise excellent.

Booked for lunch for husbands birthday very disappointed. We assumed we would get table in dining room not lounge as prices didn't seem to be different from evening meal prices. Lunch served in lounge table not large enough for four people to eat comfortably. Bottle of wine in wine cooler left on table would have thought hotel of this stature... More

Second visit here, had a lovely stay, beautiful setting, nice selection of drinks and the food was lovely, rooms cosy and staff friendly! We stayed for a work conference and the facilities for this are reasonably priced and very comfortable.

Recently attended a wedding at this beautiful hotel. Everything about it was amazing from the food and great service, the friendly helpful staff to our beautiful room with special little touches. Would certainly return and recommend. The views are also amazing.

We stayed with American friends and had a wonderful stay. We had the classic rooms which were only let down by the lack of air conditioning which you would expect at this price. The Staff were excellent in all aspects and a nice touch was the complementary tea and coffee in the lounge when we checked in. The food and... More

Stumbled across this restaurant on our way to great north swim at Windermere. Service was busy but we were well looked after. Food, what can I say about the good? Cooked and presented to perfection thank you. Have been back a few times when have been up in that area
