I booked online for a table in the restaurant earlier in the afternoon online only to be told when I arrived my booking did not count because the manager was too busy to check the bookings that had been made online. With this being the Lake District it left me in a conundrum,

Hi there, thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience with us. We try to honour every booking that we receive, however unfortunately sometimes this is not possible. When you go online, you make a 'booking request', this is not a booking for dinner, and you are advised that you would receive a confirmation when your table has been booked. Unfortunately that day we were very busy, and as we do not have our reception manned 24 hours per day we were unable to pick up your booking. I had checked the emails at 4pm and you did say that you'd booked your table at 'around 12', yet when i checked the emails it transpired that you in fact sent your booking in after 4pm. We appreciate the fact that you had such an enjoyable experience the previous night and we're sorry we could not accommodate you the next night. Hopefully we will see you next time your in the area.

Four of us had dinner here last night and the food was fantastic. Sirloin steak, steak pie and two lamb shanks were all excellent. Veggies were OK but the best thing was the delightful waitress who provided our meals with a smile and a little dance each time. Great atmosphere

Away for a weekend and would have probably eaten here for the 3 evenings had it not been for the inhospitable staff. In fairness the food was quite good but as we couldn’t buy a smile from the staff we decided once was enough.
