Pheasant and Guinea fowl nice; Salmon a littel dry; Steaks looked tasty. Cheeseboard was really lovely. Altogether, meal was value for money at £26/head for 2 course. Wines were well priced... More

We try and visit the Applegarth at least once a year and this October we took my mum and dad along as a birthday treat. Yes, it is expensive but it is worth it. It was my mums 80th birthday and she was spoilt rotten and dare I say, a little overwhelmed by the hotel, staff, the amazing food and... More

We visited Windermere with family during October, and decided to stay in central Windermere rather than one of the hotels more out of town. The village is lovely with a nice night life over weekends. Fortunately Applegarth is a little removed, so one does not get disturbed, even on Saturday evenings. As we were staying there, we ate dinner one... More

We had a 3 course meal in the restaurant and the food and service was excellent. We were staying at the hotel and are so glad we chose to eat here. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they gave us a card saying happy anniversary and decorated the table. we will be back!

Canapes followed by 2 or 3 course meal with a reasonably priced wine list. Good was excellent and encouraged me to experiment with some new choices. The sweet potato mash lifted the main course to a new level and the boozy sorbet pudding is a must.

Allow us to tempt you with a diverse choice of dishes, prepared from the freshest local Cumbrian produce, with seasonal twists that remind you of your countryside location. A truly social setting for devoted food lovers. The restaurant takes the form of a conservatory which boasts stunning views towards the fells surrounding Windermere and is a place that can be enjoyed by those romantically inclined as well as those celebrating a special occasion. Probably one of the best restaurants in Windermere, Applegarth Villa produces exquisite food in a relaxed environment. This is the perfect place to indulge in a menu which will set your taste buds alive. After dinner, enjoy coffee and liquors beside a roaring fire in one of our two comfortable lounges. Our Head Chef uses only the finest ingredients, promoting where possible local produce. We hope you enjoy The Applegarth Villa experience and Head Chef, John Kelly will only be too pleased to discuss any special dietary requirements you may have. We would advise booking to avoid disappointment. In consideration of our many guests who join us to escape family and business pressures, we are unable to welcome children into our Windermere restaurant.
