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.

Last minute booking over Easter weekend, which they managed to fit in, and we turned up late, but nothing was too much for the bar and hotel staff. Greeted with a drink and canapés, never rushed, fantastic food (catering for some quite tricky allergies in the process) and then no problems with us being the last people in the bar... More

I love this restaurant. This might just be me, but I would describe these types of restaurants as fancy pub food - it is a nice restaurant, where the menu resembles the range served in an English pub, and guests are given proper portions. The prices, of course, reflect finer cuisine - and it is finer cuisine! I love starting... More

The food was definitely unlike anything I've had before. The attention to detail really stood out for me and the tastes were varied and exciting. I've never been as excited to eat before! It looked very professional and we spent a lot of money on many courses just to see what they would taste like! Recommend it thoroughly.

We had the pleasure of booking into the Applegarth Villa Hotel and booked the DBB package. The little extra details go a long way!! Canapés in the bar before you are taken to your seats. The wine list had a decent variety of wines and where extremely reasonably priced. The food is ultimately why your here and this certainly didn't... More

Whilst staying at the hotel we were fortunate to have the dinner option included. On both evenings the meal was superb. There is a wide variety and choice of starters, mains and desserts all beautifully presented and served. The wine menu is extensive and reasonably priced as are other alcoholic beverages. All in all if you are in Windermere give... More
