The food was really superb, clearly a great deal of care had been taken in sourcing the food, preparing and presenting it. this applied to the evening meal and to the breakfast. we would thoroughly recommend staying at the hotel or eating there as they are open to non residents.

The quality and presentation of the food at the Oak Bank is second to none. It can only be described as a visual and taste sensation.

The food was simply wonderful. A small choice (4 starters, 4 mains and 4 deserts) but changes daily so during a stay at the hotel more than enough. Felt like top restaurant food (great flavours, fresh, wonderful presentation) but with portions big enough to feel like you've eaten. I cant rate the prices as it was included in our room... More

This is one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten in. The place is very well presented without being at all stuffy - the ambience good and the food stunning! If you visit Grasmere you MUST eat here!

having read such good reviews we looked forward to eting there. Quite a good start, nice lounge, a little "taster" with our drinks. The dining room is very nice and tables well spread, but soulless - not that I like music, but I felt as though I should whisper. The description of the food sounded wonderful, but it did not...

Must confess, I was a little apprehensive as to the quality of the restaurant, but my doubts were quickly dispelled by my first glance at the menu and wine list. My family chose wisely from a menu that included goat's cheese, pigeon, soup, chicken, fish and desserts, none of which were disappointing. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced....
