We visited of on a Saturday night and the restaurant filled up nicely over the course of the evening to full occupancy. The people who run the bistro are very welcoming and warm and it's a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. The food is superb, plentiful and excellent value. There's a good selection of drinks and the pace of service is absolutely... More

We had dinner here one night whilst staying in Grasmere, and it was a very nice experience. Situated in the heart if Grasmere village within easy walking distance of all the hotels. Nice ambiance, being a Thursday night in February it wasn't particularly busy but still atmospheric. I had the pear and honey starter with Stilton and it was really... More

My boyfriend and I had an evening meal here after looking on Trip Advisor for local recommendations. The reviews are absolutely correct, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and the food.... Amazing. I had the special starter of prawns and my BF had the fishcake. Both melt in the mouth delicious. Then we both had Hake (another special). Presentation was beautiful, just... More

Food was excellent, better than the 4star hotel we stayed and ate in the previous night. Could highly recommend and will certainly visit again when we are next here. Thank you very much.

We had a lovely meal here,excellent friendly service. I was able to choose from the menu as there were gluten free options(I have Coeliac disease)& thoroughly enjoyed the gluten free sticky toffee pudding...haven't had one ever that was gluten free!! Excellent.

We came across this restaurant quite by chance and liked the relaxed informal atmosphere. The food however was amazingly good - so much so we went back a second time. We both tried different main courses on each occasion and all were excellent. If you are gluten intolerant or celiac the waiter will advise and there are options. Highly recommended.

We went here after looking on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The wine was £5 for the bottle when we bought 2 courses!! We had the fillet steak and the lamb - some of the best we have ever had! As we are staying in a nearby hotel who's dinner is £39 a head this was a brilliant alternative.... More

We were 9 people - 4 adults and 5 children. The restaurant slowly filled up as we were eating which was a good sign. The children were seated on a separate table and the waiter was great with them - having a joke around with them which was funny to watch! The food was very tasty and the atmosphere was... More

We stayed in Grasmere for 2 nights and this restaurant was so nice we ate there on both nights!!!! The food is absolutely delicious and the service is excellent. Tables are nicely separated to give each table privacy. Ensure you book in advance as its very popular.
