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.

Visited on 27th December with my partner and two friends. We had booked in advance and I am glad we did! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service was impeccable. The food was outstanding - beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! This place is an absolute gem in Windermere and we will definitely return!

I visited the Applegarth last month, and had a fantastic stay and meal. The food was delicious and the service top class. I intend to re-visit in 2015 for sure. 10/10.

Loved the whole high quality of the place.The décor, ambience, service and food were all fabulous. Particularly loved the fact that the place was adult only and that mobile phones had to be off. Little touches like this lead to the place being special and somewhere we can't wait to re-visit. The owners and staff were also very personable and... More

Dined in the Applegarth Restaurant twice during our 3 night stay and the food and service were excellent. Probably the best Venison steak I have ever had.

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
