Yet another wonderful meal at this great local restaurant. The food is always superb, the service top notch and the setting is just just the ticket. The company was great and everyone really enjoyed the evening.

We could only get in at 6pm. That's a good sign to me a restaurant being booked in advance. It was very good friendly service. The wine "Pinot Grigio" was really nice unlike one we had in another eatery. The food was exceptional. Good quality, inventive and quite frankly pretty healthy. The bill was very reasonable. One of the best... More

Ate at this restaurant on our last visit to Kendal two years ago - returning last week didn't disappoint. The ambiance is warm and intimate and the food very good indeed. There was a comprehensive choice of dishes as well as price offers for three courses etc. The food is cooked to order so is fresh and tasty, the wine... More

It's been a little while since I ate here, but that is no reflection on the quality or service. Both are just as good as ever and Fran and Ian, the owners, are charming hosts. Delicious, local ingredients and wholesome portions make for a great culinary experience and the atmosphere is pleasantly relaxed.

We were looking for somewhere nice near our cottage in kendal so i didn't have to drive. and this place did the trick. Nice food, reasonable wine and very prompt service - in fact it was busy but was a little too prompt as we could have done with some down time in between courses. I would book!

Lovely intimate restaurant, serving a good range of dishes and reasonably priced, including the wine. The staff were friendly and the service good. Possibly the best eatery in kendal! We certainly will visit this location again.

Those of you who read my reviews know I don't take any prisoners nor award five stars. This little restaurant is just excellent with great staff and food cooked freshly and lovingly to your liking. The wine list is reasonable and fits with the menu. Superb just superb.

Very nice, authentic tasting French food. They do a 3 course meal for under £20 at certain times, but you can pay supplements if you fancy something more expensive. It's very filling and nicely cooked. It's only a small restaurant so booking is advisable, but it makes for a very cosy atmosphere.

Wide choice of wines and menu choice seemed extensive. I had the marinated chicken breast. It was tender but dry - had expected some kind of sauce with it. Was disappointed with that. Roast vegetables with it were ok but overall the dish was dry and uninviting. My husband had the beef on skewers. Again ok, but nothing special and... More

Booked a table for three for a friend on a Thursday night.. The choice of food was excellant and the service and quality was outstanding. Good value for money. Will certainly be going back soon.
