Highly recommend

We ate in the bar but the food was restaurant standard and staff very attentive. We had fresh fish and sausages, both dishes delicious washed down with a perfectly chilled bottle of Moet!

We booked, we were expected and warmly welcomed. We were given a choice of seating. The afternoon tea came quickly and was beautifully presented and a good selection. The most amazing plain light scones ever. However the coffee was a little too bitter. We would have appreciated a choice of blend of tea and coffee. We were left in peace... More

I dined here twice couple of years back with friends as part of a gastro tour of the lakes. We loved the food here, so I highly recommended it to another group of friends who were staying in the area and I travelled there to meet them. Yes, the food was good....but something just wasn't quite right. For me, when... More

The whole fine dining experience in the formal traditional dining room of the Rampsbeck Hotel is made all the better with the added bonus of outstanding views of Lake Ullswater. An array of tasty dishes with exquisite presentation are not only pleasing to the taste buds but also to the eye. I particularly found my menu choice for the evening... More

It was picture perfect happy -- sitting outside for lunch overlooking the lake and lovely gardens. We ordered very good fish and chips and an egg salad sandwich (came with 2 sandwiches! on very good bread). We came here after walking the very scenic trails at Aira Force -- a perfect day out.

I might just run out of superlatives in describing this excellent establishment. It is wonderful in every respect. Rooms are superb, everything is provided and decor is charming. Utterly, divinely comfortable beds. The staff are marvellous, being deferential without being obsequious, friendly without being intrusive and highly efficient. Food is utterly superb, creative, innovative and exciting. Public areas are charming... More

This was a lovely country hotel with really super service. The staff were helpful and the food amazing. However I really fail to understand why they cannot put in some half-decent wifi. At first the lady told me that it may not be available in the rooms but would be available in the common areas. Really this wasn't true...it was... More

If you thought that because this restaurant is out in the sticks the food would be mired in the 1950s you would be very wrong. It is an absolute seasonal delight of beautifully prepared and presented food which intrigues and delights. From amuse bouche on the patio, through several light courses, eg gazpacho with celery sorbet, asparagus with duck egg... More
