“Good option in Keswick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We picked here for a meal on our one-night stay in Keswick on the basis of earlier reviews. We had booked, but it would not have been necessary as there were worryingly few people in. However, I think that was because we ate fairly late and it seemed they had been bust earlier and we need not have been concerned!

The restaurant is quite small but cosy with a fairly short menu, but full of interesting options. I personally would rather have that than a never-ending list that doesn't inspire confidence that things are freshly-prepared.

Our dishes were indeed freshly prepared. I had pork, which was well cooked in an interesting sauce. My wife enjoyed the plaice goujons which she found very fresh in a light batter.

We shared an excellent Pinot Noir which wasn't cheap, but worth the cost. We also shared a cheeseboard which comprised pleasant local cheeses but a little more variety would have made it perfect.

Service was excellent and friendly and overall we enjoyed a relaxing and very good meal - most welcome at the end of a tiring day. We would go back.

“Not so different but delicious none the less”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Have eaten here twice this week (so far) once in a party of six and once as a couple. Service has been excellent - really friendly, accommodating and attentive. Food has in all cases been fabulous. The Mussels were a very popular starter; the crusted cod, lamb chump and steak burger excellent choices for mains. And an apple pie to die for. Heartily recommended.

“Great menu, lovely food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Found this place by chance, was so nice we went back the following day! Lovely choice of food, was good to have a choice of only about 10-12 dishes, you know they're going to be good. Had different meals each night, couldn't find fault with anything, great service. Possibly slightly overpriced and incredibly hot but otherwise highly recommended.

“Tasty and 'interesting'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This was recommended by out hosts and all in all the food, service and drinks were good. I was a little unsure as to the need for pear with my lamb and mint gravy but I loved the great quantities to eat my mash with and the carrots were fresh and tasty.
