I decided to take my wife to try Beswicks for our anniversary as I had read the reviews and the majority seemed positive, I was a little disappointed with the evening, David the owner i believe, gave the impression that he really didn't want to be there and having customers was a bit of a chore, the meal was average...

Excellent service and food, of a very high quality for only a couple of pound more than pub grub. Very accomodating and friendly as well, willing to fit us in late at night. A decent menu, though would have liked a little more choice of low calorie options - though good food is often heavy food! Still, excellent place.

My wife and I went for a meal for our anniversary and, as usual, we had a great evening. The food and service was excellent as always. The only thing I could recommend is perhaps a little more option or just a change of dishes for the starters and mains on the bistro menu as I think I've had all... More

We dined here on our last evening of our holiday, we should have gone here on the first evening, a very pleasant dining experience. The meals are impeccably presented with great attention to detail & a perfect ambiance in the dining room. David, the owner was a perfect host & could not do enough for us. Thank you.

David continues to delight us with the variety and quality of the food he offers in Beswicks. His service, from the warm and friendly welcome, through the presentation of dishes and wines at the table, to the coffee that follows 'upstairs', couldn't be bettered.

Our visit followed many recommendations and we weren't disappointed by the venue or food choice. It didn't work for us, but that reflected our eating habits. We found the helpings enormous and the elements very rich. This would be an immense advantage for most people!

I used tripadvisor to find this restaurant when staying in a Guest house that bizarrely did not open on a Monday evening. Beswicks is not usually open on that night either, but when I telephoned to make a reservation I found that the restaurant was opening, unusually, on the Monday evening as it had a party of 8 people. I... More

we went to Beswicks for a meal with friends who had not been before. We were met with a warm welcome by an open fire. David was fantastic and knew the menu in detail. The food was outstanding and all was cooked and served to perfection. Each course was wonderful with fantastic flavours, everyone in the party had something different... More

This cosy restaurant in the heart of Broughton-In-Furness is a gem for it's unique ambience. The welcome offered by David to new and seasoned visitors is individual and special. The food is always of a high quality with locally sourced produce, offering a varied menu whilst also retaining the tried and trusted favourites. An extensive selection of wine should cater... More

I live local and have been to Beswicks a number of times but resigned my regular support a good number of years ago when I felt enough was enough. The consistent problem seems to be the owner (David) trying to do all the waiting and front of house service himself and this can lead to poor or even very poor... More
