“Stuffed to bursting point”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Couldn't believe how reasonably priced the food was as the food and service are second to none if you go to Bowness try this restaurant you would be silly not to (booking advisable as it was very busy)

“Undoubtedly great value and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We can't visit the Lakes without dining at Postilion! It's a wonderful quirky little restaurant with superb food and great customer service. A 3 course meal for £18, of such a high standard on a Saturday night, is becoming a rare thing these days. We have dined many times over the years and have never ever been disappointed.

Mark S - Not wishing to contradict, but I just cannot believe this restaurant would jeopardise its reputation by serving burnt food, given the attention to detail in each plate served - it just wouldn't happen! (I am not affiliated to Positlion in any way). Yes, they can be busy at times but that is testament to the popularity of the place. Our family loves this little restaurant and we felt the need to respond to this negative review which, incidentally, sits out like a sore thumb amongst the many positive comments.

There is always two sides to a story.

“Summer holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Whilst on our 2week summer break in Bowness we were looking for nice places to eat on some on the nights of our stay and this was the first one we tried and were not disappointed. We called in on a busy night but without a booking, probably advised, and received a friendly welcome and a positive response for a table for two. The menu was varied with plenty of good and interesting choices and the quality of the service and food was excellent. Good value for money and very comfortable to highly recommend this restaurant.
