Although this restaurant has always had good Trip Advisor reviews, I have always struggled to see anything on the menu I could truly enjoy as a non red meat eater, so we've not been. Then last November during another trip to Bowness I got lucky!! (My husband eats red meat, so he's never restricted). The food was EXCELLENT. I had... More

Found this restaurant in Tripadvisor and managed to get a table on 30/12/14. The cobbled walk way to the entrance has lanterns sitting on it which is a nice touch on a cold winters night. The staff were very welcoming & knowledgable about the food they were serving. It's a fixed price menu with a good selection of locally sourced... More

What a disappointing New Year's Eve this turned out to be at the restaurant. To give this review balance, the food was excellent - from the Amuse Bouche through to the desserts - so no complaints on that front, but the rest of it was a disaster - and we weren't the only ones to mention it. We arrived at... More

My husband and I had a meal here just before Christmas. I had the chicken liver pate to start followed by the lamb with apricots. The lamb had been slow cooked and literally melted in the mouth and was delicious. My husband had the cheese and onion tart followed by the pork belly and was extremely happy with his food.... More

Me and my partner both had the pate to start, and then the steak. The pate was lovely, the chutneys were nice and it came with some nice crostinis. The steak came with some lovely homemade chips and a tomato on the side. We had the sticky toffee pudding and the gingerbread creme brûlée for dessert which were both lovely.... More

Lovely meal - the steak was one of the best I've ever had. Didn't have dessert as I was full and nothing really "grabbed" me but my husband enjoyed his. I'd definitely go back and would recommend this restaurant to friends 😀

Been to the Postillion several times over recent years whilst holidaying in The Lakes and always been impressed. Visited in September and most recently yesterday evening (23 Dec). Table booked in advance for 6.30pm and was met by George who was very welcoming and courteous. The quality of the food for a set menu of £17.95 is outstanding. Poached Pear... More
