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

This is available for resident guests and the general public. The restaurant is also the setting for resident and breakfast settings.

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

This Restaraunt within the Trout Hotel is a great place to eat, not the cheapest of places but wonderful local meat, seafood and vegetables

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.

We went mid- week to take advantage of the £10 for 2 courses meal offer. For a country town hotel the restaurant was gorgeous. The service was impeccably welcoming and the menu nicely varied. The wine at £12 per bottle was surprisingly good. I had the terrine and pheasant, unfortunately both were lacking in much flavour and this reduces the... More

Poor service when a piece of plastic was found in food. Instead of an apology, I was given a cock and bull story. Honesty is always the best policy, along with an apology.
