“Quality restaurant in Windermere !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Found this restaurant by chance and called in on the Saturday afternoon to check out the menu. Nice warm atmosphere and menu looked good so decided to book for that evening. The food was wonderful.The staff very polite (might have been the owners) The presentation and quality superb ! We each had a cocktail, starter, main and liquer and shared two quality bottles of wine and paid £45 each. I was happy with the price. We had a meal the previous evening for £30 per head and the food was awful !!!!!!!!!!!

I will be back without a doubt...........

“Amazing!! Would definitely recommend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

We went here based on other reviews for lunch. It was very quiet, and we were in the dining room alone, but it was still lovely. The food was amazing...the chips are to die for!! And the service was just great...very personal and given with care. I woulddefinitely recommend and would visit again.

“One of the best meals I've had in a long time and the best chips ever - perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Me and my girlfriend had dinner at The Lamplighter on Friday 11th January and we could not have been more impressed. The restaurant is beautiful and though it was quiet with it being the post-Christmas period, it was warm and had a lovely ambiance. The service was impeccable - sometime if places are quieter, you feel that you're being overburdened but the service was prompt, unobtrusive and friendly. As for the food, it was absolutely outstanding. We shared potted shrimp and pate for starters and they were both fantastic, with substantial portions! Mains were the game burger (an interesting taste but I loved it!) and possibly the best chips I've ever had. Perfectly crisped on the outside and fluffy on the inside, it's rare I go on about chips but these were special! My girlfriend had the lamb and it was perfectly cooked and juicy. Desserts were fantastic too, topped off with a little shot of Tia Maria! Add a bottle of wine and a divine Spicy Bison cocktail each (highly recommended) and it was a perfect, wonderful meal. Oh, and all that came to £100 with the tip. Cannot recommend highly enough and indeed, I've already advised friends and family to make the visit. A wonderful restaurant and dining experience - thank you!

“Another great place to eat or just have a drink.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Wev`e used the bar area in this establishment for 10 years or more.Good selection of beers and friendly staff.
The restaurant is super, high quality food served by friendly folk who are obviously interested in what they do. Prices are competitive at this level of quality. Would definatley recommend.Best book though.

“Lovely place, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stayed at The Lamplighter for an overnight getaway. The hotel is lovingly looked after and has a really friendly feel. The service from everyone felt really personal and nothing was too much trouble. The food in the restaurant was fantastic - good, honest and really well cooked and the portions were very generous.

We'll definitely be going back there.
