I really wanted to like this place. For many of our group of 7 the food was very good but for my wife and I it was a big disappointment. Our pizza they said could do as vegan came with anchovies. The waitress said they would remove the pizza charges from the bill - they didn't. And the waitress seemed... More

Food good but forget any accompanying alcohol. Minimum price for a bottle of house wine is over £16 and most bottles are £20 plus. I know restaurants all mark up their wine but this is excessive, particularly in Cockermouth.

This restaurant provides everything one could desire for a perfect evening out. The decor & ambience was excellent, the food superbly prepared & presented, accompanied by a limited, but well chosen wine list. Well worth a visit!!!!

Food was excellent and very reasonably priced, I can recommend the belly pork with black pudding . Service was very good too. Would go again and for an after diner walk the river and park are close by.

What a gem! The menu is wonderfully innovative, the decor simple but attractive, and the service first-rate. It is definitely worth seeking out. Although we enjoyed a number of lovely meals during a 10-day stay in the Lake District, this one was the best. Christine Garrett London

Visited here last month with my partner. We went quite early so we were the only customers in. The decoration is lovely, but the music that they play is far too loud! We ordered drinks, and as I was driving I asked for alcohol free beer or wine, but they had nothing to offer me so I just settled for... More

A wide choice on their menu. The service was good and attentative. The food was well cooked and presented. It was busy on our visit which shows it's popularity. For a meal which won't break the bank and supplies flavours. I would happily return.

We are local to Cockermouth & this was the 4th time we'd visited & like every other time we were not disappointed. All the staff are friendly & attentive even though they were very busy & the food was gorgeous as always. Can't understand the comments about price as 4 of us had 3 courses & plenty of drinks (maybe... More

It was a fairly busy evening when we called in to eat but they soon fixed us up with a table. We did not have to wait to be served our drinks were soon with us and our order taken. My husband and I had different meals but they were both delicious. Puddings too were 'yummy'. The restaurant was relaxed... More
