“Friendly, relaxed, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We love going to the front room. You know that Alan and Jo really care about ensuring you enjoy your meal and they always have time to chat and check that everything is OK with the meal.

The food is healthy and tasty, portion sizes just right and menu choice a pleasure to read. We recently had a big family gathering there for our birthdays and they added special touches to make the night a very happy one for us.

It holds a special place in our hearts and that is due to the wonderful owners and staff.

“Fabulous family run restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Can't believe the negative reviews I'm reading about this fantastic family run restaurant. It's absolutely, definitely our favourite place to eat in Cockermouth. The food is great, the service is great, and Alan and his staff are always friendly and make you feel very welcome.

“Great meal and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We arrived without a reservation and were offered a table no problem. The service was great as well as the food and wine. One of the best meals we have had and will definitely return.

“Lovely little bistro. Great food, service, atomsphere and (if you're lucky) live music!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We have eaten at the Front Room numerous times over the last five years and have never been disappointed. The food is lovely, the service is fantastic and the place has a great atmosphere. We have eaten at the Front Room as a couple, with friends and with family. The owners Alan and Joanne have always been the perfect hosts. If you're lucky, Alan (who is the best guitarist we have ever heard) will play and sing a few songs after service! Highly recommended!
