Jackson's Bistro was recommended to us by fellow guests in our Windermere hotel. Lucky for us we followed up and booked a table this evening. The meal was delicious especially the Lamb and Black Pudding Casserole. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was both professional and friendly. Don't be put off by not being able to find a...

Went in a group of 4 and is a good idea to book as this place gets really busy. Great choice on the menu and also great specials on the night. Tried the 2 course for just under £14 and thought the value was excellent. I had confit of duck which was absolutely delicious. Served with a side of vegetables... More

Within the town center and a small restaurant with an excellent menu. Reasonably priced and the food was excellent. Can't go wrong with this choice.

I can never understand the odd poor review for Jacksons. We have a break in the Lakes every year and for the last nine or ten years have had at least one meal at Jacksons during our stay and have never had a single bad experience. Our last visit was on a Tuesday night and even in September after the... More

First time we have had a meal at Jacksons Bistro, it was our silver wedding anniversary and we couldnt have chosen a better place! Both our meals were lovely and the service was great. We were given a complimentary drink for our anniversary which was really nice. We will definately go back when we visit the Lake district again. Thankyou!
