excellent food and excellent service.

My husband and I visited Sara's bistro as a last minute booking on our honeymoon and it was hands down the best meal we had all week. The service was attentive yet non intrusive and the food was full of flavour and really beautifully cooked. We've already recommended to all our friends and family!

The two of us were stopping at the Wordsworth hotel in grassmere for the weekend, so i looked on trip adviser for local eating houses Sara's gave a good account of itself so we gave it a go. The food was very good and i will be going back again when we revisit grassmere. Just the one point tho ~... More

We were earwigging another couple saying they were going here and they recommended it so we decided to give it a try. We booked just in case. It is not as busy as some of the other places in Grasmere probably due to it being the far end of the town. We were delighted with the reception we got from... More

We went here last week for my Grandma's 86th birthday and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent, the service was good and it was reasonably priced for the quality of the dishes. This will definitely be a restaurant that we return to.

we've been to sarah's on a number of occasions, and have always enjoyed the food without complaint. however (and this is an unfortunate 'however'), whenever we've gone to the bistro it's always been a saturday evening. the bistro is typically full, but this means that we have experienced quite a wait for service. service has also been 'brief'. extra hands...

Our second meal at Sara's, food was excellent, tasty and piping hot! The wine we chose was lovely too. All in all a great evening, wonderful ambience and excellent service. We'll be back soon, but you need to book in advance!

Very warm welcome and amazing food. Fish and Chips cooked how they used to be done in the old days, lovely light batter and really crispy chips. Finished off with an outstanding sticky toffee pudding. Will be returning to Sara's on my next annual Lake District break.

We booked a table at Sara's bistro after reading the rave reviews online. We were not disappointed. It's a cosy, welcoming place, with excellent service and the most amazing food. Despite the fact it was a Tuesday night out with holiday season, the restaurant was pretty much full and had a great atmosphere. Reasonable prices too. A truly wonderful experience.... More

My eyes mist over at the memory of our visit to Sara’s. Excellent food and service, just couldn’t fault it, apart from the fact I was too full to try a dessert…
