Fantastic meal as usually

We have been visiting the Quince and Medlar when on holiday in Cumbria for 19 years and our meal on Friday was as lovely as ever. Fantastic food and friendly but efficient service. My most favourite restaurant. Many thanks

The entire dining experience was fantastic, the staff are incredibly welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. From being seated with a drink and nibbles to paying the bill at the end you are left wanting for nothing. The food however, is absolutely outstanding! I took my family and friends none of which are vegetarian besides me and each plate... More

Lovely food and service, most of the menu is vegan or can be made vegan, reasonably priced. Will highly recommend 😊

I've been coming to this restaurant for over 10 years and I've never been disappointed. The service as always is outstanding. The menu sounds so good that it takes ages to decide what to have. I'm not a vegetarian but I've never felt like the meal is missing anything. It was beautifully presented and more than enough to eat. Although... More

We are not vegetarian but thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Quince & Medlar. It was good to see that table bookings were carefully staggered throughout the evening to ensure quality of service and we liked being able to have a pre meal drink and discuss our menu choice with our knowledgeable and attentive hosts. The food was of a... More

We had heard great things about this veg restaurant and were keen to try it. Were told booking is essential. We arrived on time and were shown in to a lounge room as our table was not ready. They brought us the menu there, which we found rather odd. We ended up waiting for 30 mins there before my husband... More

I was taken to this restaurant when visiting a friend that lives in the area as I'm a veggie and she had heard good things, and rightly so! I must admit when we first walked in I was sceptical as there's not a lot of tables and I was worried about the atmosphere being a bit dull. We were seated... More

This little restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere, with its comfortable sitting room where orders are taken and appetisers served, and upper and lower eating areas. Service is calm and unhurried, making for a relaxing evening. The menu has a wide range of dishes which all sounded so good that choosing was difficult. Food is clearly cooked with a great deal...

as the title suggests we have been going to Colin and Louisa for the last 13 years and have even taken our meat eating friends, all I can say we have never been disappointed, we are already looking forward to our next visit.

My wife and I celebrated a friend's birthday last night at this restaurant. We've all been here several times and each time it feels like a new experience. On each occasion we were welcomed like old friends. Food is excellent and well presented. If restaurant isn't fully booked you can walk in frpm the street. Give this restaurant a try... More
