Three days on the run and why not. In My and my Wife's opinion the only place to eat if you want a great meal. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and the owners chef Graham and front of house Michelle are brilliant. They also serve great german wine.

I ate here early one evening during our stay in Bowness-on-Windemere, with my husband and 2 children. We were shown to our table by a very miserable waitress who clearly did not want to be there and was doing little to hide this fact. There is a reasonable choice of food for adults and whilst the children's menu also has... More

My Partner and I decided to try Beresford's on the first and last night of our recent trip to Windermere (September 2014). It was close to our Guesthouse, so it made perfected sense to give it a try, and we were glad that we did. The menu has a variety of choices of meat, fish and vegetarian options and the... More

Just walked by this restaurant and decided to give it a try after looking at the menu. The staff are friendly. We ordered pork and mussels. The mussels are surprisingly good. The sauce is creamy and cheesy. Though the mussels are not a main dish, the portion is actually big enough for two people to share. The pork's sauce is... More

We had our wedding in Bowness and tied this in with our family coming to stay for a few nights. Graham and his staff were extremely welcoming and make our wedding day drinks very special indeed Thanks

We were walking past on the way back to our hotel, and as it was such a lovely day stopped for a late afternoon drink on the terrace, which is a lovely place to spend some time. The smallest drink of wine they would serve was 250ml which is a third of a bottle, which was £7.50 a glass, £15... More

We went to this restaurant in the evening having booked. The waiter was attentive & very friendly, We chose a main course with wine and it was excellent. We shared a pudding which again was good. There were not many people in the restaurant however the atmosphere was still good. An extra bonus was that they accepted the Gourmet card.

Had the early dinner menu. Beautiful food. Service a little slow, but to be fair they were busy. The food is all cooked fresh, my husband had the meat pie and said it was the best he'd ever tasted.

Better than my expectation ... But the seafood doesnt taste fresh ... Steak was okay but the gravy a bit salty ... Overall still edible ... Average and okay price ...
