We are staying in the Lakes visiting family and wanted somewhere special to celebrate my birthday with my husband. Having checked out the reviews on trip advisor chose this restaurant and so glad we did! We life in Jersey and have an abundance of fine dining establishments and are really spoilt for choice. However we both agreed that we could... More

We've visited here before so our daughter asked if we could go again, and we were all pleased we did. Food was excellent and the atmosphere very good. So many people were turned away as they were fully booked and It was obvious how popular the restaurant is by how how many are greeted by the staff. Very reasonable prices... More

My family and I had a fantastic meal here on the last night of our holiday! On arriving we were shown to the bar area while we waited for our table and were greeted by friendly members of staff who chatted to us and recommended options from the menu. For starters we shared bruschetta, bread with tomato and olives and... More

Food so good we went there twice during our visit in Lake District. First day me and my partner had pasta which was fresh and very tasty but pizza we had next time was even better! It was probably one of the best pizza I've ever had. Restaurant is very popular and always busy so it's better to book a... More

We nearly walked past this restaurant without seeing it, I'm so glad we didn't. We called in on a very busy night, to be given a table without having booked. From here on, our evening meal was faultless. The service was prompt and friendly, the atmosphere warm and lively and the food was amazing- the best sirloin steak I've ever... More

Table for four, fantastic atmosphere, fantastic food at a fantastic price. Three courses for four people with wine for £130. Unbelievable value. I'm definitely coming here on my next visit to the lakes

Had a fantastic meal last night, friends had booked us in for a meal at 19.30 and to be honest I don't think I've had a better meal out. I started with squid done in a tomato and garlic sauce which was cooked to perfection, I followed this by a steak topped with blue cheese, I asked for this to... More

After a week of hiking we wanted to treat our selves to a good meal, and the food here was at the top or near the top of ll the places we ate during a 2-week trip. The ambiance is like being transported to Italy; the mostly Italian staff are very well trained and very solicitous. Important to book in... More

We booked a table for 8.30 on a Friday evening and arrived to be told we needed to wait upstairs until a table was ready - this we did and some 2 minutes after being offered a drink we were told to go back downstairs. We were placed at a table right by the door and every time it opened... More
