We popped in here for and evening meal. The menu choices and prices were reasonable. Neither of us wanted a starter so both ordered our mains. We both had the beef bougignion which was deliveed to our table in less than 10 minutes in bowl on the plate. This therefore can only lead you to one conclusion that it is... More

Disappointing! Steak was tasteless and vegetable were given to us half way through main course. Took a long time to get drinks and the long black hair in my dinner did nothing to enhance the taste!

Called in for a sandwich for lunch. The bread wasn't great, my ham sandwich was fatty and salty. Others had prawns which fared slightly better. Coffee a disappointment, two of the drinks ordered were lattes, we had to request hot milk to top them up as the cups were only half full. On a positive note, we were sat outside... More

Came here for lunch and sat in the very pretty garden.Not all the food on the fairly small menu was available but the fish pie I had was delicious.

Visited the restaurant in the early evening, had 2 roast turkey dinners with drinks for £23.25, very good value, good service in nice surroundings, the food was hot, tasty and plenty. This establishment is just off the main road through Bowness but worth seeking out.

While looking for an early Saturday dinner in Bowness we looked at the bistros that were open and found them a bit pricey for what they were. We walked around the back of the main street and found a lovely pub serving lunchtime specials until late and also a great selection of meals. The portion sizes were bountiful and clearly... More
