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.

We went to Cedar Manor for a meal on a Saturday evening. We were greeted and shown to a lounge-type room where we were bought drinks and appetisers and menus to browse. Our order was then taken and we were shown through to the restaurant room which was ambient and intimate. The serving staff were lovely, the food was delicious... More

There was a pleasant buzz in the restaurant when we dined on a Sunday evening. The service was friendly and well-informed, with good quality tableware and cutlery. We had the three course menu at £39.95 and, whilst the food was perfectly satisfactory, we didn't have anything which got us really excited. The wine list did not show vintages, not a... More

I booked the restaurant taking the recommendations from TripAdvisor and was delighted with my selection. I enjoy 'little touches' like drinks offered in a cosy lounge with lovely nibbles of cheese straws and nuts. I had the three course menu and enjoyed all of it - the celeriac gnocchi with sage butter was particularly delicious and the sticky toffee pudding... More

Me and my boyfriend visited windermere for a mid-week break for his 24th birthday, we chose to dine here after reading exceptional reviews on here. A five star rating doesn't even justify the wonderful experience we had. The manor itself was stunning and the welcome from our hosts warm and lovely.
