We ate early the 1st night (around 6) which was quite fortunate as after this point there were a lot of disappointed diners being turned away as the restaurant was full.

Read reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to try here having had a couple of disappointing meals at other restaurants in Grasmere. Booked a table for two, were greeted warmly on arrival and shown to our table. Service was attentive and friendly but not obtrusive and food was exceptionally good for the price. We would definitely return.

we always eat here when we visit Grasmere. The steak is absolutely melt in the mouth gorgeous! And the pannacotta beautiful. Staff friendly, and we were served quickly, but with time to wait before eating desert. Xxx

There is street parking right in front of the restaurant and a nice green where you can walk after dinner. They have a Happy Hour such that if there are two of you and you order two courses each, they sell you a nice bottle of wine for 5.00 and the wine was nice! They also have gluten free selections...

Fantastic food, great staff and a lovely friendly atmosphere. The meal and the service were excellent and it was great value for money. The steak served medium rare was one of the finest served.

We decided to try Sara's having read the reviews here and we were really happy that we did! The food was fantastic and the service prompt and attentive. There was a great atmosphere, with quite a number of the diners clearly being regular patrons and having a relaxed and friendly relationship with the staff. We will definitely return next time...

We ate here one evening during a rcent stay in Grasmere, choosing it simply because we liked the look of the place and it's menu. We weren't disappointed; the three of us all had different starters, mains and desserts and all were really excellent - well presented and delicious. Together with friendly and efficient service and a pleasant if slightly... More
