I visited the restaurant during the first weekend of June. I'd heard of it from a few friends in Windermere, and read the reviews. My experience far exceeded my expectation. The location in itself offers you a choice - of a riverside view or a smart casual ambience inside. We opted for the latter, as we wanted a little privacy.... More

Just, wow. We met some colleagues here for a business meal on a Saturday evening and I was so impressed with everything. Firstly, the staff are exceptional. Friendly, polite, well presented and knowledgeable. They were not ever-present but checked in with us and made sure we had everything we needed without being clingy/lurking! They are very professional, and the chef... More

Just left the Honest Lawyer and super impressed! We both had the pigeon starter and my colleague then had the lamb and I had the salmon! Food exceptional! Bottle of red superb and cognac to finish with the cheese board! Waitress absolutely brilliant - this place is a little diamond and very reasonable on the wallet!

The food was very good. All three of us were happy with the choice and quality. The waitress very very good, attentive when appropriate. The restaurant area was comfortable - a nice atmospher - and it's very pleasant outside by the river for a pre-dinner drink. Will be back :)

We all had the Fathers' Day lunch, which was great value for money (£14.95 for two courses, £18.95 for three). Three of us had the cod and... More

I went there with my wife in June 2014. The restaurant sits at one end of the Cockermouth Main Street and we parked up the hill at the Leisure Centre, about a five minutes walk. The entrance is down some steps and along a terrace above a small river. Inside the Restaurant is modern with a touch of the old.... More
