We visited Ambleside recently for two nights in early September. We thought, given that school holidays were over, Ambleside would be quiet. That proved to be wrong as the place was very much thronging with people and it proved difficult to find a restaurant with space available for 4 people. We have often overlooked the Looking Glass but having space... More

We've been here a couple of times and have thoroughly enjoyed the food. It's always a treat so we save a visit for a special occasion. Service has always been very good, and the layout of the restaurant gives the feel of never being too busy, even when it's full.

The staff were all very efficient and friendly. I f anything the service was too quick. The two course meal was completed in less than... More

We have eaten here before on many occasions but on this visit called in for a beer - the Peroni our favourite is on draught. Its a great spot in the summer to sit outside, soak up some sun and watch the world go by, whilst downing a few beers and enjoying a sandwich or something hot. Or when the... More
