Dinner at Sara's

We ate here with friends on a Friday evening and were stunned by the quality of the food. It was exceptional and equally as good as the Jumble Room in Grasmere. For my starter I had prawns on a bed or rocket which were delicious. For my main I had pork belly which was cooked to perfection and absolutely scrumptious.... More

Good service and good food, husband thought the fish was cooked to perfection, I enjoyed my soup, thought the chicken and rabbit with apricots was very good, but perhaps needed a bit more spice. Cheeseboard excellent.

While staying in the Lake District we travelled to Grasmere in the evening to have a meal at Sara's Bistro. We were not disappointed, enjoying a lovely meal, including tasty soup, excellent steaks and some lovely desserts.

We were going to a play in Grasmere and wanted somewhere interesting to eat within walking distance of the Village Hall. Looking at the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided that Sara's Bistro fit the bill, so booked. How glad we were that we did! After a warm reception, we were seated and immediately offered menus and drinks. We decided to... More

As we were unfamiliar with the area, this restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of our B & B. The food and service were second to none and the restaurant has a good ambiance. It was our intention to try a different restaurant for the following night, but having had such a lovely experience on our first visit,... More

Prebooked this restaurant and just as well we did. A relatively small bistro which was well filled for a midweek night. Not a huge menu but what was there was top rate - a lovely evening.

We sat outside as we have dogs. The staff were friendly and personable. The coffee was good, the cake was great - a lovely little lunch stop

We booked a table at Sara's because we had eaten there on our last visit to Grasmere 4 years ago. Again the food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the service is excellent. We would definitely recommend it.
