We had the balsamic lamb steak, which was excellent, as were the potatoes and veg. Not enough vegetable for me (of course) but more came quickly when requested, and we weren't charged for them. Enjoyed the welcome snack with the drinks (though the drinks were not exactly quick coming). I had the chocolate fudge pudding, which I'm not really a... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hosts at the B &B 6 Castlegate and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the host was very accommodating and the food was excellent. The menu is limited but don't let that put you off and do keep in mind that the Front Room is only open Thursday to Saturday.

There was a lovely atmosphere and I soon got talking to some people on another table who told me it was the best in Cockermouth! (They should know, they own one... More

Plentiful cured meat and olive starters followed by good lamb steak and the best steak sandwich ever seen - tiny bit of bread underneath a huge steak. Inexpensive wines. Thoroughly enjoyable and will recommend to anyone.

We have been going to this restaurant for 7 yrs and have never been disappointed. You are always welcome and get great homemade style food. The selection is not huge but the freshness is more than you get anywhere else as it's cooked for you. Well worth going too.

This small restaurant is only open Thursday to Saturday so tends to be fully booked much of the time as the food is good and the ambience lovely. We were lucky to book the last table when we called in in the morning! Good interesting and varied menu with vegetarian options, freshly cooked, generous wine servings, cheerful and engaging staff,... More

Ate here with a party of16 a couple of weeks ago.Choice is limited but choices include vegetarian. I had a lovely Antipasta starter followed by the lamb which was pretty ordinary,The deserts were all nice and food and wine very reasonably priced. This is a nice friendly restaurant but needs to think more about main courses.
