Have just enjoyed a short break in cockermouth and on our first night came across this restaurant. It was very busy (surprising on a Monday night) but they managed to get us in. Food was excellent and very beautifully presented. Service was great and staff were attentive and friendly. Highly recommended

Ate here on 14th April 15. The service was okay, polite but not very friendly. The food was very disappointing. I had the slow cooked pork belly with a side of garlic and rosemary roast wedges. The pork was very bland. The wedges weren't roasted, had never been near any garlic or rosemary, and were clearly pre-cooked new potatoes that... More

Good food and service, wine pricey. All in all a pleasant experience. Probably safest to book a table in advance.

We popped in for a quick tea the other Monday evening in our last night in the Cockermouth area. We aren't big eaters and wanted to order dishes to share. This can cause problems in some restaurants but not here. Nothing was too much for the staff who were accomodating and polite. We had garlic breads then shared some pizzas... More

Wonderful food, give the garlic bread a miss and try one of their other starters, had meatballs and asked for it to be spiced up, tasted brilliant, nice and spicy, wives lamb looked amazing and there wasn't a drop kept on the plate after so that says it all. Parents food looked lovely, pizzas not too big so no waste... More

Pre booked a party of 9 for dinner on Easter Sunday, menu choices made in advance. Service was excellent and food arrived quickly and exactly as ordered, although some of the dishes looked like they had been waiting for a while in the kitchen (slightly glazed pasta sauce, for example). The 5 garlic breads varied greatly in terms of the... More

Went in on recommendation. We ordered from the set menu and for the first time felt that every dish on a set menu was simply delicious. My boyfriend ordered the cold meats platter, the only order that was different to mine. He felt full up and bloated but we took that as him feeling satiated. All through the night and... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. We were staying near by and found the restaurant on tripadvisor - it did not disappoint. The place has a really nice vibe and we liked the artwork... sadly not enough to pay £900 for it but it looked fab! Service was speedy, staff were really attentive and kind and the... More
