“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

While I'm not a carvery connoisseur The Lakeview struck me as very reasonably priced and the food was of good quality. All this while sitting by the large panoramic windows that overlook Lake Windermere.

“Very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Not a big fan of carvery meals but this has got to be one of the best, lots of meat and a good selection of hot veg and all at just over £4 per person. it was night when we went but in the daytime it must be one of the best views of the lake

“Yorkie man”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is a Crown Carvery establishment. Don't knock it till you've tried it!
Right on the lake with fantastic lake views if you sit by the massive panoramic windows.
Very good carvery heaps to eat...isn't that why we go to a carvery?
Loads of hot veg & selection of meats. Desserts to die for, great selection...something for everyone. Ideal for families loads of room in the place.
It cost my wife & i just £15 for the evening. Carvery & a large dessert for 2 sharing (chocolate ice-cream, double choc brownies, choc sauce, wafers, cream) & a couple of drinks, talk about value for money!
If you go at peak periods especially during school holidays be prepared to wait as it will get busy.

“Panoramic lake views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Drove up to the lakes from the Midlands on a sunny Sunday morning in February arriving at about 8.50 and parked up outside The Lakeview which opened at 9.00.
We went in and had the breakfast buffet and two hot drinks for not much more than £10.
The food was good the staff were friendly and the view over the lake fantastic.
Well worth a visit.
