Stunning food, lovely service.

Truly excellent food and service. A lovely well priced bottle of Viognier and some of the nicest pork belly I've had in years. Very fresh clams in the lady's dish. Just great all round.

Popped in here for lunch. What a great find this place was. Although small got a really nice feel to the place. Food was absolutely spot on. My girlfriend even thanked the chef. Will most definitely be back here when visiting Windermere.

We wanted to grab a bite to eat before the last train home to London, and happened across this place, with an appealing . Although a sign stated "Open 6pm", we called and were seated a few minutes beforehand. We opted for two set menus, I the starter and main, and my girlfriend a different main plus dessert.

Superb 3 course meal, everything cooked beautifully, service a little slow probably due to a very busy night. Would definitely visit again.
