We have been to Bowness a few times and came across this restaurant by chance having booked a 2 night stay at the hotel - absolutely fantastic. The setting is beautiful. It is situated near The Belsfield Hotel, tucked away in picturesque scenery of wildlife in a conservatory - so you are overlooking all of the above in a lovely... More

Very enjoyable visit. Lovely service and food was delicious. Daughters, 7 and 4, enjoyed their meals and also the flowery bathroom! Will definitely return to the restaurant and maybe stay at the hotel too after reading the good reviews.

Even though our choices were pre-selected, all of the party enjoyed their food and many comments were expressed that the steaks were the best ever tasted. Other options were Venison Wellington and Salmon and there were clean plates all round!

Inside was a huge, beautiful, comfortable room (17, later found out this block has had a recent refurb). The room was so lovely, we didn't go out very much!... More
