We chanced upon the Spinnery while on a day trip to Windermere. The building, one of the oldest in Bowness on Windermere, provided great atmosphere. The front of house was brilliant, a young lady who could not have been more helpful. The food came in large servings and was very tasty. The potato chips in particular were exceptional, as was...

Me and my girlfriend were looking for somewhere to have an early dinner as we had been walking all day and not had chance to have some lunch, we chose the Spinnery near our hotel as it had an inviting lunch menu served untill 6.00 with much better pricing than the surrounding competition! It is a lovely building with traditional... More

This restaurant is just fantastic. One of the oldest buildings in Bowness and the food is just amazing! Nice variety of items on the menu and the chef should be very pleased with themselves as it was spot on.

While the dining room was lovely with many features, and the front of house staff were good and friendly, the food was disappointing. My husband and I both chose dishes from the inclusive menu (3 courses for a fixed price), but whilst my husbands courses were ok, mine lacked flavour and the lamb meatballs were quite gristly. The lemon meringue... More

We stumbled upon The Spinnery after finding everywhere else in Bowness either full up or too expensive and when we got in we could NOT believe that there weren't more people there! There was a fire going downstairs, lovely old building with wooden features. The waitresses were extremely polite and everything came very quickly. The menu for 2 courses for... More

Meal was OK but staff could have been more cheerful. Compared to the restaurant we visited the previous evening there was no comparison.

The wine tasted of vinegar. Quite empty , obviously not the most popular place around . Especially as the night before at the lighthouae it was... More
