What a fantastic place to enjoy a bottle of wine in the sun! Didn't expect to be able to sit outside in October checking out the view of the lake.

Won over by the view, we got some drinks and waited for evening service to start at around 5pm. My wife had the beef Sunday roast and I had the chicken. Lovely food, reasonably priced and very quick...will definitely be back.

Great setting and the hot pork sandwich I had was enjoyable with gravy and apple sauce! Staff were polite and efficient (there seemed to be a lot of them, end of season?) Decent.

Nice outdoor setting, on the shore of Lake Windermere, when weather is good, and nice view from restaurant windows when weather is bad. Menu is far bigger than necessary (i.e. more extensive than necessary).Far too big. When too big a choice is offered, then quality usually suffers and the cost goes up. In most modern English restaurants the menu is... More

Went here on a Friday night without booking a table. Able to get a table for 6 as the premises is quite large. Food reasonable price and served quickly. Menu a little smaller than expected but still plenty of choice. Several beers and largers on sale at the bar. Overall a decent experience at not too expensive a cost.

Excellent choice of local beers. Staff very friendly; only negative was that every sign in the outside areas had a negative message, telling you everything you shouldn't do on the... More

Shame that the service doesn't match the surroundings of this bar! Just stood waiting to be served and astonished that the girl behind the bar managed to serve two people who walked up behind me! Then £7.35 for a coffee and a pint of lager make this a place to avoid!!

Thank Smudje
