We have eaten at Sara's Bistro on a number of occasions and always book when visiting Grasmere. There is always a good ambience and the staff are really attentive. The menu has plenty of choice and the wine list is very good and reasonably priced. You will not be disappointed.

We were enticed by the £5 bottle of wine offer on the board outside and ventured inside on a cold November evening. We had the chicken/rabbit hot pot and the lamb dish and both were absolutely gorgeous. Marc is very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for him and he has a good taste in music too which is...

First time eating here and without question this is the best steak we've ever had. And the best onion rings too ...! And not to mention the garlic bread and everything else too. If you're in Grasmere you'd be mad not to give this little gem of a place a try. It's brilliant.

We discovered Sara's after being repelled by the VERY loud tv at Tweedies bar and the fact that a Sirloin Steak there costs £26.50. A quick google led us down the road and what a cracking find Sara's is. It is unassuming, unpretentious with absolutely fabulous food. 10/10

We had booked into the hotel down the road, and having been to just about every eatery in the village we came across Sara's bistro. We booked the Friday night. On arrival we were greeted by Marc and he so politely showed us to our table, we were never rushed we were left to eat the meal at our pace,... More

Wow - we decided on eating here just from the menu description - far superior to anything else on offer in the village. Telephoned Marc to book table there and then and Paul and I were not disappointed! The food was of Michelin star quality and the service was amazing. Was so good we immediately cancelled our hotel reservation for... More

We appreciated the friendly welcome, and the decor of the restaurant. Taking our coats to the cloakroom was a nice touch often overlooked these days. All three courses were imaginative and tasty. Eating before 7pm meant that we could enjoy a bottle of cabernet sauvignon for just £5.

Wow, this really was a great find. The food was fantastic - great flavours and attention to detail and served hot. The service was great too. We will definitely be returning next year.

After many visits we found this great place although theyve been going for years apparently. Great host and staff, super quality food (the steak could have been better aged) prices were reasonable and atmosphere was very relaxed. We'll be back
