Absolutely fabulous!

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!

We ate here last night and had a fab meal. It's a quaint little place that you would be forgiven for walking past, but when inside, you're greeted with a warm welcome and gorgeous food. We were a party of four and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Definitely recommend The Front Room 😊

We live locally and have been planning on going to this restaurant for ages, has been a bit difficult to arrange due to the fact that they are only open Thursday-Saturday evenings and not during the winter, and when they are open they seem to be fully booked but it was WORTH THE WAIT!

Its the only restaurant I could say that I have been to that the portions was that small and the price was that big you did not feel full when you came out we had to make sandwiches when we came home what a disappointment

The menu is varied, the cooking is without complaint, mine host is not overpowering in what is without doubt a smaller venue. More than one meal has been enjoyed here, and though its always best to book, you may be lucky if you turn up on the night, but don't count on it!

Ticked all the stars as I could not find a fault with the place. It is what it is and does it well. Food was good, service excellent and the small selection of drinks was adequate.
