Every dish on the menu looked delicious and it was difficult choosing which one to have as they were all good. The Fillet Steak was so tender, it just melted in your mouth and the Creme Brûlée was gorgeous. Everything we had, including the wonderful breakfasts were 5*

After reading great reviews of the restaurant online, I decided to book a table for 2 for my fiancé's birthday. A large glass of Pinot and peroni we're ordered and we sat down in the bar area before been shown to our table. The first thing I noticed was the lack of atmosphere, no music, in an airy room...you could... More

Right from the outset your intention was never to pay for any meal you intended to have with us. Out of the many guests who dined that evening 14 people chose the lamb casserole and thoroughly enjoyed it so it would seem a miracle if two inedible ones arrived just at your table. Equally, judging by the maliciousness of your... More

Pre-Dinner drinks in the bar (very relaxing & welcoming) with canapes whilst perusing the extensive menu. Once our order was taken & prepared, we were then shown to our table in... More

We ate at the Applegarth all three nights of our stay in Windermere, and found it absolutely delicious. The choice on the menu is perfect, with something for every taste, and the staff were also lovely and very accommodating to any special requirements - they were very helpful in letting us change table to a quiet corner (just one of...

I stayed at the Applegarth in August and made a point of dining in the restaurant, not only for breakfast, but also for evening meal. I stayed for 4 nights and the first night I had a mouth-wateringly good pork terrine starter followed by the very best fillet steak ,chips and a divine Diane sauce I think I have ever... More

My partner and I were staying at the hotel for a short trip to the Lakes and decided to have our evening meal there too. Dining out can be a stressful experience for me as I can be quite the fussy eater and there are a few things I am allergic to. I contacted the Applegarth a week before we... More

Having a daughter ourselves who cannnot even look at anything gluten we are very much aware of the limited menus that available to people with dietary issues and since Head Chef makes everything onsite he knows exactly what the ingredients are and can create the menu accordingly.

We visited the restaurant for our 20th wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! The food is delicious and the wine is top quality. The steak was mouth watering and the Bailey's and marscapone cheesecake was heavenly! We are regular visitors and we rate it as the best restaurant we have ever been to.

Thank you so much for your review and for clearly pointing out that Applegarth is Adult only. Although all our literature and website clearly state Applegarth is adult only you decided to book a table for 4 without mentioning you were bringing a child and buggy.
