The menu and food at this restaurant is of the highest standard, the menu varied every day and the wine list was extensive. I have been to several famous restaurants and the food in this restaurant equals any of these. If you like excellent food and wine with great service, this is the place to go. Alan and Di Drummond

I loved my sea bass and I've not had it nicer anywhere else. In my town we have a fish restaurant which is famous for its seas bass but the one I had at Applegarth was amazing in comparison.

My husband & I ate here on the 3rd February whilst staying at Jerichos Guest House a few minutes walk away. The hotel is beautifully decorated & warm & inviting but as it's out of season was exceptionally quiet. We were seated in the bar in front of the fire in comfortable chairs for a pre dinner drink & canapés,... More

I usually only have 2 courses when having a meal but had all 3 courses as the choice was too tempting. The service was excellent and we were even... More

Visited on 27th December with my partner and two friends. We had booked in advance and I am glad we did! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service was impeccable. The food was outstanding - beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! This place is an absolute gem in Windermere and we will definitely return!

I visited the Applegarth last month, and had a fantastic stay and meal. The food was delicious and the service top class. I intend to re-visit in 2015 for sure. 10/10.

Loved the whole high quality of the place.The décor, ambience, service and food were all fabulous. Particularly loved the fact that the place was adult only and that mobile phones had to be off. Little touches like this lead to the place being special and somewhere we can't wait to re-visit. The owners and staff were also very personable and... More
