Day visit to Lakes with French friend and hubby. Looked for place with good reviews and somewhere to eat that had good access for people with disabilities. Not usual in Lakes! Not only was this restaurant friendly on all counts but the staff and most of all the quality of the food was excellent. Well worth trying especially when using... More

We have been to this restaurant twice now and found our choices of food to be excellent and good portions. The staff were attentive, but not overly so, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit is there. Well recommended.

Me and my husband visited today for the lunch time special menu. It was £8.95 for two courses which was exceptional value for money! The food was prepared fresh, and came out beautifully presented. The plates were red hot, we had the chicken balti and the vegetarian option mushroom stroganoff. We then had the most delicious desserts again presented to... More

We ate here whilst we were on our honeymoon in the Lake District as the reviews looked good overall and it was on the taste card (50% off meals). We met the rude waitress who has been mentioned in previous reviews. She was very rude and insulted us on the fact that one of us required their meal to be... More

I've visited this place before...but on Sunday 31st May my family and I stepped in at approx 8pm...asked for a table. The middle aged waitress with blonde hair didn't even stop...Instead shouting on her way...we're closed. Bad manners in front of my 8 year old son. She looked like she wanted to go home quick. I won't be returning.

We just visited this evening, the waitress was really miserable, a large party arrived shortly after we did which may of been adding to her stress levels, but she only smiled and spoke to us when she gave us the bill. The kids menu was very poor, the usual, chicken, sausage, bugger with chips no sides option, we had to... More
