We came across this gorgeous restaurant purely by chance as we got chatting to people who had visited many times. We booked a table to avoid disappointment as this is not a big restaurant. The welcome was very warm and friendly as we were showed into a cosy dimly lit dining area of some 6 tables or so, at one... More

Came here for Valentines night with friends. Food was superb with good service. Had a nice atmosphere and we really enjoyed it. Had the early bird meal which was great value.

We're regular visitors to Bowness and are starting to work out the places we like to eat. With so many to choose from the chances are we would take a while to find one or two top class places - this is definitely one! You get a vibe for any restaurant pretty much as soon as you walk through the... More

Stayed at the Toffee Loft for two nights as a birthday treat... I couldn't have wished for anything more! The position is perfect — right in the center of Bowness-on-Windermere, with it's own parking space. Yet hidden away from view so nobody even knows you're there. And there are no neighbours too, so you can make great use of the... More

Recently got back from Windermere and had a great night with my family. Food, drink and service was top quality. Hats Off to the Chef as well who prepared my fussy 5 year old daughter a special meal. Thanks All

We went here on Friday 20 Feb (our first night of a 2 night stay in Windermere). We went at 6:30pm for the £17.95 set menu which is excellent value for money. It was quite busy, so recommend that you book in advance as we did! For starters I had the poached pear with watermelon, a lovely light starter.... My... More

Been here before on numerous occasions and its always top drawer. Booked well in advance for a table of ten, the food as ever was superb, the service however was not good. We arrived at 7.40 for 20.00 booking and were more or less told off by the young lady who greeted us, sat upstairs for 25 mins and had... More
