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.

We stayed at the hotel and so already knew after having the breakfast just what a treat we were in for at dinner. We had a drink in the bar first and chose from the menu before being shown to our table. Picking off the menu was difficult due to some really amazing sounding dishes! I had the chicken, haggis...

Comfortable and quiet room but very disappointed. The decor was quite dated in the room with fabric flowers and plastic cups and a throw that was stained. This is not what I expect from a five star hotel that cost £250 a night bed and breakfast. I felt that the owners were penny pinching at every opportunity. The canapés before... More

Wow! This restaurant exceeded all our expectations from the moment we walked in the door. Greeted by the lovely owner and we had a drink at the bar, conversation and order our meals. Both gluten free it was such a relief to receive such a wonderful range for each course on the menu. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was to die... More

From the very moment we were greeted, I felt completely in awe of this beautiful restaurant. I had a lovely starter and the main course looked just like the photo on their website (as I'd had a little nosey before I went) Spring rack of lamb was just beautiful. My other half had the fillet steak, with the cracked black... More

We visited the restaurant for dinner on Sunday evening. The venue was lovely and the hotel was very charming, although we were not in residence and had only viewed the accommodation on the website which looked to be of a high standard. We were given a warm welcome and were really looking forward to our evening at the Applegarth. The... More

Their website says that Applegarth is probably the best restaurant in Windermere. Unfortunately it doesn't meet this aspiration in my opinion. Pros: the lovely setting of the conservatory restaurant, the competitively priced wine list and the high quality ingredients. Cons: service could be polished, eg. asking the diner to taste the wine. More invention with the quality ingredients. 'Watermelon, feta... More

We ate here on the Sunday evening during our weekend break to Applegarth Villa. Staff were attentive and very professional throughout our dining experience nothing was too much trouble. To start I had the mushroom and asparagus with a focaccia crouton and the wife the bocconcini with pine nuts, tomato, spinach and a rocket pesto both were just lovely and... More

Our visit started well. The staff are charming and some nice amuse bouche were served in the bar while we perused the menu. The ambiance is lovely and we had a nice window table. Unfortunately the food did not quite match the ambiance. Appetizers were good but the rack of lamb was a bit too fatty and hard to eat... More

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.
