“An Off Night?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Oh dear! Just read the previous brill reviews. We have been going to this restaurant, on and off for years and this was possibly our worst experience. Yes I know it was Easter Sunday evening and I know they were mega busy. But it's not a good start when 2 water glasses had to be sent back still daubed with lipstick! The service as ever was pleasant and attentive. The starters were all good. The vegetables were under cooked verging on raw. One of our party had a vegetarian risotto for a main course and maybe they had almost run out as the portion was paltry to say the least. We will go back. It is a good restaurant and maybe we were just unlucky.

“Amazing value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Had a great dinner last night at Morrels with friends. We had the £20 per head set menu. Choice was great and clearly well thought through by the Chef. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Nice relaxed atmosphere.
You will need to book in advance - the place is very busy and I can understand why after our experience last night....
I had vegetable hash with poached egg to start (cooked perfectly), followed by chicken breast with Bombay potatoes, finished with very berry knickerbocker glory.

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Had a brilliant meal here on our last night in Keswick. Fantastic food, great presentation and excellent service. We chose from the set meal, very happy with our choices which were delicious. Several other options we would have liked to try too. Reviews on here helped us decide on Morrels and we're very glad we went there.

“Birthday meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

A fantastic place for that special meal or everyday treat. The food is delicious and service excellent too. We went for my partners birthday and we ate like King's, so much food and great wines too. We are Event Planners so always looking for great places to recommend to clients. Morrels will be shortly on our list of recommended places to eat in the Cumbrian region.

“Just excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I booked Morrels for my husbands birthday based on reviews on here (having never stayed in Keswick before). I was nervous as we went with another couple and I always worry about booking somewhere that's not up to scratch. I had absolutely nothing to worry about! We all ordered something different from the set menu and every single thing was just amazing. The braised beef was to die for, as was the belly pork.
We're all still talking about Morrells being one of the best restaurants any of us have eaten at. The food was outstanding, the service faultless and the value was excellent. Four of us ate three courses of amazing food, shared a lovely bottle of wine and had change out of £100. We all agreed that we'd have happily paid more as we thought the set menu was that good!
We will DEFINITELY return. Thank you Morrels!
