A well-positioned base for exploring Bowness and the lakes, and decorated exceptionally inside. The enormous bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in, not an easy feat when 7 months pregnant! However, a few little niggles got to us over the week - it was a rare heatwave during our visit, but the sky lights were wedged and... More

Mu husband and I dined here for our Anniversary while in Windermere (29th Sept). We didn't reserve a table. From the outset the service was excellent, our waiter/server was very attentative and helpful, as we don't consume any alcohol he made sure no alcohol was in our dishes, Thank you. The food was just amazing from the second I put... More

Used the "early bird" option, pre 7pm. Obviously works well as restaurant was very busy. Service was quick to shift us through but nevertheless friendly and attentive. Nice menu and we were happy with our choices

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions over the years. Visited in September this year with a party of 6. First of all its not cheap not in the slightest. For a 3 x course dinner on a Saturday (They have times where the price goes up and UP!!) it is nearly £26, which may seem reasonable but I... More

Have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and always been delighted with both the food and the service. The menu is inventive, flavours subtly combine without overwhelming the palate. The chicken was succulent and the sauce beautifully balanced. My husband rated the duck first class. My meal was rounded off by the velvety gingerbread creme brulee whilst my... More

What can I say, perfect imaginative food, perfect atmosphere, friendly yet efficient and caring, accommodating service without being overbearing . The restaurant is a must for a romantic meal or dining with friends. You won't be disappointed.

I can't recommend the Postilion enough. The food has all the usual dinner offering, chicken, lamb, pork etc but they are all cooked with piquant sauces or flavours that make this place really special. There is a cod wrapped in paper that comes with one of the most wonderful sauces I have tasted. The desserts are amazing too. The service... More
