Our mains were battered cod , which was described as having batter that was so flat it could have... read more

Often eat here with business associates, this place just gets better and better. The menu is vast with a great wine list, the food is always well presented and plentiful and the staff are always very friendly. Never had a bad meal and always look forward to returning.

Have never been here before despite living really near, we decided to pop in for S unday lunch and really glad we did. The food was excellent, the staff were attentive, the restaurant was clean, bright and airy and the prices were really reasonable. We had starters and roast mains but sadly had no room for the lovely looking desserts... More

We visited here for sunday lunch at the weekend with our 2 children and its not the first time we have been. We love sitting in the conservatory which is relaxing and tasteful. The service is fast and friendly. The food is beautifully cooked with lovely tender meat and fresh vegetables. We will be back again.

We liked the outlook from the restaurant and the ambience within it. There was lots of choice and the service was friendly and we were neither rushed nor left waiting. We liked it so much we returned the next evening.

My friend and I visited this lovely hotel for lunch ! We thought the food,ambiance and pleasant staff wonderful! The conservatory where we were seated was a "Gem"...views over towards the mountains very pleasant. A good central area for the Western lakes & coast. Cockermouth/Keswick only 10 - 20 minutes away,!

We had garlic mushrooms, chicken in a smoked cheese sauce, roast beef and a salmon. To follow lemon tart and strawberry cheesecake. It was £3.95 for a starter and the same for dessert and £7.95 for a main... More

A light and airy atmosphere in the conservatory.Despite overlooking the main road traffic noise was not too intrusive .The staff were well turned out and attentive. The starters were attractively presented and the poached salmon and lemon and lime mayonnaise ,and the garlic mushrooms were particularly good. The strawberry kiwi and melon cocktail was predominately melon and heavy on juice.I... More

Have visited several times for family meals, both at lunchtime and in the evening. The staff are very friendly and the food is very good and is reasonably priced.
