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.

What a wonderful place

It was our first time to the lake distict and Applegarth villas was absolutely amazing. It is luxurious and we loved it from the moment we arrived. I cannot over emphasise how beautiful the place was and the food was exquisite. Than you so much.

Applegarth Villa is stunning, really perfect for a special occassion. We were welcomed into the beautiful lounge for drinks and canapes while we looked through the menu. The regular menu is fantastic - my husband loved his smoked salmon blini and steak, but the shrimp and trout specials won it for me on the day. The dining tables are in... More

We walked in to the Villa/restaurant & I thought wow it's really nice. Has a posh feel but the people who owe/run the restaurant are so laided back but see to your every need at the bar area. Warm welcome, made to feel relaxed & they serve a drink to you & bring some canapes & then the menus to... More

When we arrived and confirmed our reservation for dinner - it was just like going to friends for dinner. The owner (Lovely lady) said "come on through to the bar and I'll get you a drink" - We felt really relaxed - and welcomed. We had three courses....timing was perfect between each. My partner had salmon and I had potted... More

Food here was incredible, service second to none... great pasta dish... my wife also enjoyed the steak, cooked to perfection!! ... couldn't manage a desert but they looked really yummy. Draft beers, great selection of wines and literally thrown back by the large selection of whiskey on offer! 5 star restaurant!

Our third stay at the Villa, and the very friendly service is welcomed. We feel we are 'properly' looked after with all of the staff being very friendly and helpful, making sure you are comfortable and need for nothing. Great meal in the restaurant. Absolutely top quality food. Very comfortable surroundings in both the restaurant, bar and rooms. We look... More

Just dined here during a short break in the Lakes, found Applegarth online and made a reservation at short notice after a beautiful but tiring day walking, we were warmly welcomed and not rushed in the slightest despite me & hubby being a little late for dinner.

You have got to eat here! Husband and wife run the show, and look after you from start to finish. I liked the fact that you were sat down with a drink in the bar and made your menu choices there prior to being seated - a nice touch you don't see all that often any more. The food was... More

As someone who likes to plan an itinerary for a trip away, I researched Windermere to check the selection of eateries within the local area. The Applegarth favoured highly on many of the review sites that I used and so I rang the restaurant and my booking for a table for two was taken by a very helpful and courteous... More
