We visited on Saturday 25 January. The reception on arrival was as warm and welcoming as ever. I have not had a meal at Q & M for two years however the character and setting were just perfect. The menu is constantly refreshed with new ideas and innovative recipes which is why it has such a loyal following. Our meals... More

A wonderful experience, wonderful service, fantastic food and great value! What more could you ask for - a hidden gem in the Lake District. A must visit.

This is a quite smart restaurant compared with many other vegetarian eateries that I have visited. It is cozy and the food is good, if a little pricey. It is slightly out of the centre of Cockermouth, so somewhere you could easily miss, which would be a shame. The food served was interesting and imaginative with plenty of choice, and... More

When it was first suggested that I give the Quince & Medlar Restaurant a try I was very sceptical as there was no meat on the menu. How wrong I was, despite there only being vegetable and cheese dishes on the menu they all sounded delicious and the ones we all choose did not disappoint. It was a great night... More

We took daughter and her boyfriend for a January cheer up.We were shown into the "sitting room" where we had a pre-dinner g and t and complimentary amuse bouche whilst we perused the menu. Finding it very hard to choose as everything sounded so delicious (check out a sample menu on their website), we all chose differently so we could... More

I hated it all. Left the restaurant and went to the chippy. The food was over priced and very small portions

Been meaning to try Q&M for the past 18 months and finally made it there a couple of weeks ago. There was a nice selection of food and what we had was delicious. The service is very good too. The place is small so it's best to have a reservation. The thing I found odd was that prior to being... More

We visited the restaurant last week and had an amazing 3 course meal. The restaurant is warm and inviting and it was a nice touch to have a drink in the 'parlour' before the meal! Service was good and the food was tasty and we left feeling very full! Even the meat eater complimented her fully veggie meal! Would definitely... More

I visited the Quince and Medlar with a couple of girlfriends one Saturday night in November. We'd all wanted to try the restaurant for some time but hadn't got around to it due to our carnivorous husbands! I remember thinking the menu didn't sound particularly appetising, each dish seemed to have a lot of ingredients but I couldn't imagine what... More
