We visited here for an evening meal. The service was quick and polite. I ordered a bottle of prosecco and was told that they had sold out. The waitress offered us a different type of processco at the same price which I thought was a really nice touch. Myself and my husband both ordered the rib eye steak these arrived... More

A really lovely meal in a smart restaurant with a smart interior and Mediterranean feel outdoors. My goats cheese bruschetta and salmon steak were excellent and the garlic mushrooms and moules were highly praised by my husband too. Great customer service by the young waitress, who made sure she returned with a cooler for the very fine Sauvignon blanc. Although... More

Sat on outside table with dog. Pleasantly unusual menu (Scandinavian influence?) and delivered well on taste at top-end prices. Steaks served on hot plates was a good touch. Sadly service was a bit chaotic. Children seemingly not welcome at dinner as kids menu ends at 6.30 and no half portions (even for a pasta dish). Did not bother with desserts... More

We liked the look of this restaurant having passed it a few times whilst staying in the area. Our experience didn't live up to expectations unfortunately. Having read previous reviews I'm glad to see that a high number of people did enjoy their meals and the service provided. I'm guessing it may depend upon what food you order and the... More

Went for a meal with my fiancée and family, 5 in total. Booked over the phone after trying on Monday but they were closed, after 15 minutes on the phone they finally sorted 2 tables into a 5 seater. Once arriving we were seated at our table in a basically empty restaurant, waitress left us for the only other table... More

We were told there was no tables available in an empty restaurant. But only after we had all bought drinks and sat downstairs for half an hour.

Dear Kayleigh W Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write your review. I am sorry that our empty restaurant gave you the false impression that there were tables available but had you asked on arrival or even indicated that you were wishing to dine with us you would have been informed immediately that the...

During our annual visit to Ambleside, Isobel and Guy from Northern Ireland recently had a meal in The Log House. It was delicious! I had a steak while Isobel had duck. Both were served on a roasting hot lava rock slab on a wooden platter, so that we could cook the meat to our exact personal liking. It was wonderful.... More

Stayed 1 night in this lovely place. The service was excellent & all the staff were so friendly & could not do enough for you. Regretably we didn't eat here but the food looked amazing & never seen so many empty plates in a restaurant. Will definitely be dining here next time. The room was small but very comfortable &...
