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. Our Head Chef uses only the finest ingredients, promoting where possible local produce. We hope you enjoy The Applegarth Villa experience and Head Chef, John Kelly will only be too pleased to discuss any special dietary requirements you may have. We would advise booking to avoid disappointment. In consideration of our many guests who join us to escape family and business pressures, we are unable to welcome children into our Windermere restaurant.

Fine dining at its best in a wonderfully friendly atmosphere

A wonderful venue for fine dining and romantic dinners! Unpretentious but oozing class. Superb food, cooked to perfection. Friendly, attentive service that avoids intrusiveness.

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

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.

Brilliant food with a view perfect for people watching. Very professional place to eat. Prices are quite high but once you see the food you will understand why!

Came here last night with my girlfriend for a romantic dinner - we were absolutely thrilled to find a place of this quality! Now I wouldn't say I was a 'foody' but it does take quite a bit to really impress me - but this place did. From the stunning surroundings in the bar prior to dinner to the friendly... More
