You���ll find Cedar Manor offers a seasonally changing a la carte and table d���hote 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.

Chose this restaurant because of the reviews in Tripadvisor and were glad we did. The ambience is lovely as are the owner and staff. It is dining as it should be with a fantastic choice of food. It was cooked to perfection and presented superbly. I have been in Michelin restaurants that were not as good as this. If it... More

A fabulous evening that was about the whole experience, not just the wonderful food and wine. We were greeted on arrival and taken through to the lounge where we enjoyed snacks and a pre-dinner drink whilst considering the menu. We were given plenty of information to aid our choice of food and wine, and then went on to enjoy a... More

On visiting during the slow period in January, my girlfriend and I were looking for a restaurant to celebrate my girlfriends birthday and through the recommendations on this website we chose The Cedar Manor. As Windermere resembled a scene from 28 Days Later at the time, probably due to the high rain fall during the winter, many restaurants were closed... More

As a frequent visitor up to the Lakes I can quite honestly say that the food here is probably the best available in the region. The main theme is 'local' and the food is sourced throughout Cumbria and the surrounding area. For a very reasonable price you can get the full 5* treatment in the waiting room with a local... More

We stayed at the hotel and dined at the restaurant for both nights. A snug restaurant with great ambience. Candle-lit tables and not too cramped and over-crowded. Beautiful food, excellent, attentive service. A large wine-list with a good range of prices. Please do go and visit - you will regret not going.

The food was simply beautiful!! We were surprised with a red pepper soup at the start of our meal, which was homemade and stunning. The meal was so professional and the service again superb. I only have good words to say.
