For some time my wife & I have intended to have lunch at Rampsbeck. A few weeks ago we paid a visit to enjoy for ourselves all we had read about. It is true that the grounds are large and well maintained. It also must be admitted that the building is large and impressive; even though the interior projects the... More

Wow we only found this place by chance as our hotel had let us down with our evening meal booking. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and were served immediately with drinks and a menu. The Amuse Bouche was a delight and our meal was 1st class in every respect. The staff were faultless... More

Stayed for 3 nights on our "mini-moon" just after getting married. It was absolutely fantastic! The highlight of our stay was dining in the restaurant....we ate here every morning and evening and it is some of the best food we've ever had! Breakfast overlooking the lake is so relaxing and we were always so full after breakfast we hardly needed... More

We had a wonderful evening. We were greeted with a lovely friendly welcoming smile and it just got better from there! The staff are wonderfully polite, friendly and very efficient. The meal was a joy we both thoroughly savoured and enjoyed everything we were served.The wine list was varied and the choice we made was delicious. The view across the... More

This is a review for the restaurant. We first stayed and ate at the Rampsbeck over 10 years ago and used to visit regularly until we moved to the south of England. It was interesting to return and compare the experience under new(ish) ownership. The food, whilst still very good, was not exceptional like I recalled - there was perhaps... More

Whilst driving up the Ullswater Lake, we called into the Rampsbeck hotel for a morning coffee and shortly after were relaxing with amazing views of the Lake and having a little taste of luxury during our Lake District visit. Staff were friendly and the ambience was great.

We visited a number of upmarket establishments in the Lake District for tea and scones during the Easter Weekend. You might have thought that so simple a request might not figure highly in the priorities of such an establishment, but we were greeted with the same level of courtesy that you might have expected had we been staying in their...

Killing time, we expected to find charming tea rooms around the edges of Ullswater but were a tad disappointed as we could not find any. Friends told us, later, that we were on the "uninhabited" side of the lake. Finally a sign for an hotel that also served morning coffees, so we drove down an impressive drive to find a... More

Wow, this was our first time in Ullswater and what a way to introduce it to us. The hotel is a field away from the lake and is a fantastic old country house. Lovely old furniture in high ceiling rooms with log fires. Lovely bar area with leather chesterfields and the service was top notch. Nothing is too much trouble... More
