Evening Meal, Last night in Coniston !

Booked by phone, after finding places often too busy between 7 and 8. Behold our table for two, reserved in a busy lively bar with no obvious seating available, hence tourists at entrance trying to spot tables. Were greeted cordially, escorted to table, menus provided, specials explained and... read more

I decided to book the Yewdale on our first night due to it being busy in Coniston. The first night we ate in the bar, this was rather busy, but it was our choice and the staff were great. Menu was extensive, specials were different and perfectly priced. There are two dining choices either in the bar or the bistro.... More

We had a fantastic meal here with very helpful and friendly staff. Although they did not have any free tables, they were able to accommodate the three of us by letting us have a table that was reserved for a later booking.

The Landlord, after taking money for two rounds of drinks, refused to serve us food as there were seven of us in the party. We had a table, the bar was half empty and the waitress had freely given us menus.After hearing our objections the landlord forced us to leave and told us not to come back. Some of our... More

This is the second review associated with this incident so I will not go over the issues again only to say that you were asked to leave the bar due to your antisocial behaviour after refusing to accept our reservation policy. A very busy evening service went smoothly after you left. Thankyou. More

We booked here as it looked nice and seemed very popular. They had a good selection of well priced wines so we ordered a bottle. The wine glasses were huge! We ordered some starters to share. The service was efficient. We had ordered the vegetarian nachos for starters. The nachos were burnt and there weren't many of them - it... More

Went here for an evening meal since it seemed very popular, to the point where you had to book. The staff were friendly and welcoming but the good points ended there. After taking our order, the waitress returned to say they didn't have any left of what I ordered (nothing spectacularly difficult - just ham and tomato quiche) So, I... More

Popped in just for a pud. We both opted for the sticky toffee and it was delicious. A very pleasant end to our evening out in Coniston. The menu was appealing but we had already eaten elsewhere. The locals are quite vocal and mostly moaning about the tourists which I am sure keeps their local in business.

My partner and I arrived to find the pub packed, we ended up sitting inside- but you can't blame the management for popularity! As soon as we walked in the door we were welcomed by a lovely man (tall and with black hair is all I can describe him as) who completely made our experience great! Small talk, big talk,... More

Our party of 5 arrived in the cafe part of the hotel, sat down and looked at the menu to only be told rudely by the till staff that "we've run out of food". How unprofessional to not erect a sign in your window to state this fundamental fact- a busy afternoon in August and you run out of food,... More
