Description: 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.

Our two night stay included complimentary dinners on both nights. Having read good reviews for the restaurant we were hopeful that the complimentary meals would live up to the reviews. We were not disappointed as the complimentary meals were from the main menu! There was a good range of dishes for each of the three courses from which to select... More

We visited Applegarth as a result of an Internet "trawl" to choose a venue for my wife's 70th. Birthday. We couldn't have chosen better....from the initial booking process which was most efficient and pleasant, the reality was exceeded expectations. The most important element of any organisation is the staff and Applegarth have excellence here. As we are talking about food... More

Not only is the hotel first rate, but as an added bonus, the restaurant is just stunning. Fresh local produce at a great price in a great location. My only downside is that I could not try it all in the short break we were there. Mackerel was so fresh and tasty and steak perfectly cooked that just melted in... More

The choice of food was outstanding all served in excellent surroundings and very pleasant staff.you can enjoy a pre-drink in the fabulous bar before you eat, which makes you relaxed and gets you ready for a taste bud fusion, there is nothing the staff won't do to accomodate any special requests with dietery needs too.

Carrying on from my hotel review… http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g186330-d287708-Reviews-Applegarth_Villa_and_Restaurant-Windermere_Lake_District_Cumbria_England.html We were led to our table where we ordered a bottle of house Rose, at a modest £16.95.

We have children and grandchildren but welcomed this child free environment along with the excellent food. We were made very welcome from the second we set foot in the bar which along with the good food and friendly service made for a great night.
