We have been to this restaurant on many occasions and the reason for keep returning is because it is just excellent. The staff are very friendly and efficient. A very good choice of food. The special board usually includes a fish dish. The whole sea bass is fantastic!! It's a must if you are visiting Bowness and want quality food.

From the outside I thought well it's been highly recommended so let's give it a go. Upon entering we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff. We were given a lovely table right by the kitchen were you can see your food be cooked for you. This to me means a lot as they can't afford to hide... More

We visited on a Monday evening and expected it to be quiet, but it was full. They found us a table downstairs by the pass - a real treat to see all the dishes as they were finished. The service was efficient and friendly. Orders taken swiftly and food arrived nicely presented. Both our meals were excellent. Our only criticism... More

Our first night in Windermere and we were lucky to choose a good restaurant. The food was wonderful, plenty of specials on offer. This was combined with friendly, prompt but unobtrusive service. We sat chatting over the food and wine without feeling any push to clear the table for another customer.

Really enjoyed our meal here. My husband could not stop stealing my mushrooms in creamy Stilton sauce and although I'm not a vegetarian, I loved the veggie-stuffed peppers. The bread & olives for appetizers fresh and yummy! Would definitely return - make a reservation!

Risotto was good, mussels in spicy sauce was delicious, melt-in-the-mouth (board special) sticky ribs. Best of all the warm and friendly service. Eat here!
