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.

An absolutely charming atmosphere in a restored Victorian Country home. The food was outstanding. My Crispy Sea Bass was world class and the rest of the dishes were very good (although my wife was not as impressed as I). The owners wait the tables themselves and create an elegant yet comfortable ambiance. The only negative is that they really need... More

Visited Cedar Manor whilst staying in Windermere. The venue is gorgeous and whilst retaining character it is decorated tastefully and has a modern swish feel. It is also quirky and eclectic and it is clear that everything has been carefully thought about. Had a warm welcome. The staff are knowledgable and interested. Jonathon couldn't be more quietly enthusiastic about his... More

My boyfriend and I went for a lovely meal, despite not staying as guests. We started in the bar area before moving into the restaurant. The food was divine and the service exceptional. Meant for a truly special evening. Thanks!

Wow! When we pulled into the drive- one look told us we were in a special place. A gorgeous meticulously kept English Manor! Beautiful grounds with lovely places to sit and enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine. The inside is delightful with exquisite attention to detail. Our room was on the first floor and was lovely, quiet... More

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.
