Ordered drinks and starters with friends. The hostess/waitress told us very rudely while serving our food that for future reference the front room was not just for alcohol consumption only to which we replied that we had ordered starters. Which were rubbish by the way. We were so annoyed with her attitude that we went to the castle bar for... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food was amazing and they were very accommodating for children, offering tasters before choosing. The owner treated us to some guitar music which was very good. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next night as well.

Visited last week for my dad's birthday and was really impressed. My mum and dad know the owner, who seems like a really genuinely nice bloke, and the food was excellent. I had hot smoked salmon for starters and the stuffed chicken for mains - both were extremely tasty and you could tell that the ingredients used were of a... More

I have eaten hear a number of times over the last year. It is a small family run restaurant, but still has a lively atmosphere. Everything I have tried here has been top notch and cooked fresh to order. Always go way happy after eating here!!!

There is little else that i can add to the last review. An amazing little place, which is run by a couple, has a very short menu - so everything is fresh and is served with love (imho). My only improvement would be .. change the menu more often... The food is scrummy but we called twice within two months... More

Having concocted a plan to watch the England-Scotland rugby game in the nearby Castle Bar, my very thoughtful other half told me that he had also booked a meal in the front room after the game. I actually thought he meant upstairs in the bar, as we have become seasoned regulars of late, but I was soon to realise that... More

I had a meal for my 50th birthday last night at the Front Room with 11 other family members. We have often eaten here and it's my favourite restaurant in Cockermouth. Alan is a fantastic host and the food was amazing! Cannot recommend it enough!
