Description: 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.

The restaurant is in a small hotel. Nice big house with beautiful garden and we saw cherry blossom! The food is good with nice presentation. If you arrived early, there is a holding area and they will serve you drinks and some snacks. Friendly and helpful staff.

The service here really is second to none - thank you for another fantastic evening! Very good food and good value overall. Great decor (things have changed a little since we last visited - love the bombay sapphire chandelier and bespoke wallpaper) and had such a lovely relaxing few drinks after dinner. Really like this place.

We didn't stay at Cedar Manor, but had our evening meal in their restaurant. On arrival, we were sat in the lounge whilst we were waiting to be taken to our table. The lounge was decorated beautifully, and we were given cheese straws and roasted nuts to snack on before we were seated. The restaurant is not too big, and... More

I'm baffled by the good reviews of this hotel/restaurant!? We went there for a meal there a few days ago and were ushered into a lounge area by reception which would not have looked out of place in the 1960s. It had a large central light with several dozen pieces of blue glass/plastic (?) hanging from its frame; there was... More
