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.

Very nice dinner in the Lakes

Really enjoyed the dinner we had here a few weeks ago, Jonathan was very friendly and helpful as was the waitress (Patricia, I hope that's right!). The food was excellent as was the service and general ambience of the restaurant. Will definitely be back if we are in the area again.

From the moment our taxi pulled up we received excellent service and a friendly welcome from Jonathan who showed us into an intimate lounge where menus were presented and a good selection of local Gins were available for our party. The restaurant was atmospheric but lacked lighting to appreciate the food on your plate. The food was exceptional in terms... More

We weren't guests at the hotel, just the restaurant. I cannot fault the place. The food choice was amazing, the food produced was extraordinary and the service was spot on. I had a glass of prosecco with my meal, which went down very easily. I ordered the guinnea fowl terrine, lamb and the lime gingernut cheesecake. My partner had the... More

I had blue cheese soufflé and miso marinated hake as starter and main course. Both dishes are very delicious and the hake must be the best I have ever had. Best of all, the price is very reasonable, less than £40 for 3 courses.

I believe that this restaurant is principally for residents, but we were warmly welcomed by the friendly manager (wish I knew his name) and Patricia, the Spanish waitress. The food was delicious (I had duck for the main course) and beautifully presented. Service was excellent. And when I asked for espresso and it was not available, the manager made me... More
