Unexpectedly child free on the Saturday evening during our stay in Bowness. Which was also my 40th Birthday. So decided to head out early evening and try and find somewhere nice to eat at such late notice. Ended up trying here. All credit to the host. He squeezed us in on a little table downstairs, even though he was quite... More

I came here years ago and really enjoyed the surroundings. Unfortunately this time we were sat by a table of people a little worse for wear who shouts and guffawed for the duration of our meal. Quality of food was average but the service was good.

We (family of 3) ate here on Saturday to celebrate my husband's 40th Birthday & we could not have booked a better restaurant. From the friendly greet, we were shown to our table downstairs by the fire, just perfect. They offer a choice of set menu or normal menu they even offer an exceptional kids set menu before 19:30.

Booked a table for a Saturday night, no problem two days before arrival in Bowness. Service was second to none, very pleasing. Food was 8/10, steaks & deserts great, let down by fries - which resembled something from McCains. Pretty good though, not sure if we'd go back.

We ate here as a post matinee dinner and we're delighted with the quality of the food, the attentive service and the great value for money. We all chose from the 3 course set menu. There was plenty of choice and everything was beautifully cooked and presented. i would definitely recommend it to friends.

We had a lovely meal here after watching an Alan Ackbourne play at the Old Laundry Theatre. The food was delicious, the service was efficient, friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend.

We ate here on a Friday evening in November - we hadn't booked but we went early ( 6:30pm ) and managed to get a table . The food was truly wonderful I had their chicken special while my wife had the lamb stew - we both enjoyed the meal and the accompanying vegetables were cooked to perfection :)The ambiance... More
