One of the nicest lasagnes I have ever eaten. I loved it. Great that tastecard can be used and so it's half price. The waitress was polite and friendly to us and was always on hand. Lovely music playing setting a good atmosphere. It was a shame it wasn't a bit busier v

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.
