Visited here a week ago. The service was perfection, the value for money incredible, the food tasted as beautiful as it looked. We ordered the cheese tart (which I could have eaten for every course), the pear salad (artwork) the curry (pineapple chutney is my new favourite), greek parcels (took me instantly on holiday) and then the brownie and toffee...

Whilst on holiday in the Lakes my brother and I along with our wives booked a meal for a Saturday evening. The Postilion restaurant is tucked away just off the main Bowness high-street but is still easy to find. On arrival, we all thought the ambiance was excellent and we were soon shown to our table, situated on the ground... More

Had a lovely evening meal at the Postilion. An innovative (Heston Blumenthal style ) menu, the food was delicious and well presented, the price did not reflect the standard of food served. We will certainly eat there every time we visit the Lakes - it would be hard to beat on it's central location, standard of food and price

Booked on the strength of the reviews on TA and it didn't disappoint - food, service and staff friendliness were all excellent - would strongly recommend if you visit Bowness.

Booked this restaurant before we arrived in Bowness as we wanted somewhere special to eat on our anniversary. We were not disappointed. So glad we booked as the whole town was very busy. Agree that the restaurant is quite small and cramped but the food and service was really good although we did feel a little rushed at times. One... More
