Saw board outside for early bird and decided to give it ago and was not disappointed . Wife had garlic mushrooms and I had the pate which were both delicious and we both had lamb steaks for mains which again was lovely with nice veg . Service was quick and friendly and an open kitchen which is always nice

Great place for a drink. If you've got limited time in Windermere or the lakes, go here have a drink and a chat with the owner and he'll point you in the right direction.

Attentive but not obtrusive staff. Food excellent and our requests for slight deviations from the menu were accommodated without question. Sadly we only found this on our last night but will definitely visit again next time we are in the area.
