This restaurant is the best place for vegetarians to eat Cumbria. I could have chosen all of the dishes on the menu as they were soo appealing. The service and the food made our holiday. We brought a couple of non vegetarians and they were bowled over by the food so much that they wanted to eat there the next... More

We had another wonderful meal at Quince & Medlar. Fantastic service, great starters, wonderful mains and magnificent sweets. What more could you ask for. A must visit! Graham & Maggie Lamont

This restaurant was great. Really delicious,fresh and inventive food, making the most of the taste of vegetables. I had a beetroot and aubergine dish with wasabi and it was delicious. I then had a trio of chocolate desserts which was fab. We went with another couple and we all had a great evening. The restaurant was busy,even mid week, so... More

We have greatly enjoyed dining here for many years although we are not vegetarians. The food in lovingly prepared with some amazing textures and flavours and all beautifully presented. The service is low key and unhurried making for a relaxing evening. One of the delights of living in Cockermouth is having the Q and M on our door step. Everyone... More

Primarily we go for the dining experience which again last night exceeded expectations from an already great restaurant. The pre dinner treats and hand made chocolates make the evening even more special. We are not vegetarians but when you are eating meals of this quality we do not miss the meat. Book a table, you will not be disappointed.

We dined at this restaurant for our 20th wedding anniversary celebration in June 2014 having intended to go on previous visits but not got round to it. All I can say is that it was worth the wait. The food was excellent, so lovely to be able to eat anything off the menu, a strange experience for a vegetarian! The... More

To say that this restaurant is an institution would be doing a disservice, many so called 'family' operations can become stale and set in their ways. There is no such worry here, the couple who have owned and operated this truly exceptional experience have continued to evolve and refine their menu so that you will not be disappointed.

Blessed with some super vegetarian restaurants in Edinburgh, we approached the Quince & Medlar - which was completely unknown to us - with some diffidence. But our recent dinner there was truly outstanding and deserves warm praise. The menu showed imagination and flair; and the execution was faultless. A lot of work goes into producing food of this quality, yet... More

What an amazing find by my husband! Everything was fantastic from the time we walked through the door until the time we left. The canapés with our drinks in the lounge before our meal were a real treat. Make sure you book as they were very busy. Thank you for a great food.

Came all the way from Hampshire to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Excellent service, interesting menu and as vegetarians we could actually choose everything on the menu for a change. A great place for a romantic meal for two or special occasion or just to have a nice meal out. Make sure you book.
