We ate at Francine's one evening a few days ago. The food was good, the staff friendly and attentive. We felt it was good value.

Good restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. I had the fish casserole, which is one of the tastiest dishes I have tasted. The pate with brioche was delicious too. Ohh and not forgetting the sticky toffee pudding~yummy. Nice little touches like canapés. You do need to book as they were turning loads of people away. Give this place a try, it... More

This is again a busy place, booking is a better option as we were squeezed in. We enjoyed our meal here, the food was nice & the ambiance was lovely. We had the set menu, the soup was nice and the main course was lovely too! Would recommend!

Our second visit here was just as good as the first. The value is outstanding - as well as the full menu there is a special menu at £18.95 for three courses.

As visitors to nearby Bowness, my wife and I booked a table in anticipation of a lovely meal based on the reviews. I ordered lamb shank and my wife a steak but we were very surprised to have to pay for the bread we asked for as apparently it's only free of charge if you order a starter. We found... More
