If you are look for a fantastic Sunday Lunch in the Langdales then I would be surprised this could be beaten. Local ingredients beautifully cooked and presented, really relaxed but attentive service. The whole family enjoyed it enormously.

We had an absolutely wonderful meal in a lovely setting overlooking the rolling hills of the valley. Asking for a window seat is a must! The service was good and the food was just divine, one of the best meals I've had recently.

It's a lovely old building with a gorgeous view down the Langdale valley and across the tip of Elterwater, with some tables on the grass outside to take a drink and relax after a day's walking. There's a lovely lounge area with a big window to sit in and admire an even better version of the view - with a... More

We dined here as we were staying close by and had been 2 years ago and loved it. We couldn't fault it, the food was amazing. The lamb main course was the best I've had in a very long time. The braised lamb was beautiful and fell apart in your mouth and the fillet was seasoned and cooked to perfection.... More

Nice old house with a view onto the wonderful scenery of the Lake District. Let down by a rather surly and negative service culture and lack of attention to detail. Despite relatively high prices, the lack of reliable wifi, decent coffee and welcoming atmosphere came as an unwelcome surprise and disappointment.

My boyfriend booked a weekend away for my birthday and paid for a superior room as it was a special occasion. When we arrived first impressions were good until we saw our room which compared to the other superior room (which has a bath and large room) we were very disappointed. We stayed in the room tom heights which although... More

After a long days walk with our two dogs, we wanted to have our evening meal at the Eltemere Inn. We have stayed here a few times and know that the food is always very good. Because of the dogs we had to eat in the bar area as opposed to the dining room, but the bar is stylish and... More

Luxurious rooms, we stayed in Robin Gryll room with a large four poster bed,wooden beams,lovely decor, luxury with a wow. Breakfast was excellent but could be improved with coffee top up. I will definitely be staying here again.

Decided to try dinner here and so glad we did ... It was wonderful! We arrived to a cheerful welcome and sat outside enjoying a drink whilst we looked at the menus. It was a lovely warm evening and the views are superb. All the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was gorgeous. If you like formality then... More

Dropped in during a bike ride for a "mini afternoon tea" of hot drink , shortbread and gingerbread for £3 per person. We sat on the outside terrace which was peaceful with lovely views towards Elterwater . Staff serving were pleasant and helpful. Compared with many coffee shops this was good value and in a more luxurious setting of a... More
