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.

Good food and wine after a long walk

Local produce, exceptionally well prepared and presented with a good wine selection, both by the bottle and the glass.

The Applegarth is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Staff where brilliant, fantastic rooms and a lovely hot tube in the bathroom. Felt like a nice family run hotel. Would go back again without hesitation, ten out of ten.

I had a family meal at the applegarth for my father's 70th birthday treat. The food was really tasty and no complaints from any of my party (who are fussy eaters!). I would definitely go again.

Dined here whilst staying at the Applegarth Hotel, (see review ) Top notch restaurant serving quality food, service was both good and friendly. Will dine here again when we next staying at the hotel, if we lived local would become a favorite venue.
