Enjoyable Valentine's Day dinner

My wife and I had dinner at the Derwent Restaurant for Valentine's Day. I found it strange that they had us sit in the pub like area first to order our food. I'm sure our table was ready and I would have preferred to sit in the formal dining room and order instead of a noisy area. But the... read more

We ate here on Friday night. The prices reflected fine dining and this is what we were expecting, and the service to reflect this, as we have eaten there before. The service was mixed. The gentlemen who served us were at the level of service that we were expecting. The waitress was not to that standard and required alot more... More

We enjoyed a relaxed dinner in the Derwent restaurant the other evening. We have been there several times before and always have had good food and service. It's not the cheapest in Cockermouth but the quality of the cooking is always excellent. The three of us chose from the short menu so felt we had good value, quality local ingredients... More

Had Breakfast here which was really nice and consisted of a Continental style buffet breakfast reinforced with a full English if you wanted it. Both excellent and the service, environment and 'homely' feel to this Hotel went down a treat!

Came here as a large family party for Sunday lunch. It was extremely poor. The vegetables were cold and overcooked, yorkshire's rock hard and beef tough. I did complain and was given a discount which at least was a recognition that something had gone horribly wrong at the kitchen end, but I would struggle to recommend it for an important... More

Really good sized portions, if you like meat try the Steak, Meat feast or the Beef Strogonoff. Alternatively, the fish was just as good. Loved the fact that we were able to eat in the restaurant from the bar menu which ensured plenty of choice over the Xmas period.
