First built in 1854 as a private country retreat and housing an unmissable 200 year old cedar tree in its grounds, tradition and a sense of place are important to both the look and the food at The Cedar Manor Hotel and Restaurant. You will find Cedar Manor offers a seasonally changing a la carte and table dhote menu of classic British food on which all produce is sourced from providers based in the surrounding Lake District. Open to guests and non-residents, one might want to relax with a book in the cosy hotel bar and take in the views of the nearby Lake Windermere before taking a seat in the restaurant which has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes.

Only had breakfast, but it was excellent! Lots of choice of hot dishes - Eggs benedict, smoked haddock and poached egg, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on bagel, as well as usual full English with local sausages, eggs and bacon.

Booked Cedar Manor for a meal on our 35th wedding anniversary, whilst revisiting the place we stayed on our honeymoon. The restaurant is very stylishly furnished and decorated, very comfortable without being stuffy. Staff including the manger/owner and the Spanish waitress were very attentive and made us very welcome. The quality of the food and the very reasonable wine list... More

A clever menu well thought out. All ingredients appear to be locally sourced. The head chef has a local reputation for excellently cooked meals. These are well presented and the service was excellent.

I was lucky enough to book a table at Cedar Manor for March 14th (my better half's 30th Birthday). The service and food made the experience so special, there was no need to even mention the fact we were celebrating. The evening was only made better by the bill. Yes it wasn't as cheap as a local pub, but this... More

Thank you very much for reviewing your evening at Cedar Manor. We do sometimes take a little time to take you through from the lounge to the restaurant as everything is cooked freshly to order and never rushed, we should have let you know that up to 30 minutes can be expected from arrival to being seated at the table....
