ADULT ONLY Allow us to tempt you with a diverse choice of dishes, prepared from the freshest local Cumbrian produce, with seasonal twists that remind you of your countryside location. A truly social setting for devoted food lovers. The restaurant takes the form of a conservatory which boasts stunning views towards the fells surrounding Windermere and is a place that can be enjoyed by those romantically inclined as well as those celebrating a special occasion. Probably one of the best restaurants in Windermere, Applegarth Villa produces exquisite food in a relaxed environment. This is the perfect place to indulge in a menu which will set your taste buds alive. After dinner, enjoy coffee and liquors beside a roaring fire in one of our two comfortable lounges.

We stayed in their modern suite - room number 1 - in the basement. It has striking decor, which was not relaxing for us, but the bed was very comfortable. The huge spa bath was fun. It was noisy from the communal area above us, so we did not sleep well. They will open new suites next door in two... More

I booked this restaurant for my grandmas 90th birthday celebration after reading the great reviews on here and I was not disappointed. We were looked after so well, it was a nice touch to seat us in the bar area first and then take us through to the restaurant area. Food was great, good selection, fresh and well presented. After...

We stumbled upon The Applegarth during a 'flash visit' to Windermere. To be honest, we didn't stay or eat here, and the drinks were perhaps a little on the expensive side, but in the beautiful warm evening sunshine, the views and ambience while relaxing on their rear outside terrace were mesmerising. When the sun's out, I strongly recommend a visit... More

Great location, wonderful service and adult only (and no cell phone rule ) is nice - but being perfectly honest the food while visually appealing- was average My wife had the bacon wrapped trout which was somewhat dry, I had the filet steak which I asked for blue - but was more medium rare to medium.

We dined at Applegarth to celebrate my son's 14th birthday, lucky he looks older than he is because unbeknown to me, Applegarth is for adults only! We were ushered into the conservatory first for drinks, canapes and to study the menu. There was a good selection of food available. Two of us chose the steak, it was cooked perfectly as... More

A wonderful venue for fine dining and romantic dinners! Unpretentious but oozing class. Superb food, cooked to perfection. Friendly, attentive service that avoids intrusiveness. And a collection of scotch to die for (well, spend time sampling, really!). Only the post dinner coffee was a let-down: tasted like it came out of a machine (which it did). You'll need a well-stocked... More

Totally pampered, beautiful surroundings in the heart of Windermere. A must do. We will stay there next time. Served a welcome drink in the bar where we also chose from the menu. Beautiful decor and a very relaxed atmosphere.
