very good

Went as a family group on Christmas Eve. The food was excellent, and so were the choices on the menu. The staff were friendly, but not overbearing. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and modern.

I snook out alone for my tea tonight, had a fabulous meal and excellent value at £12 for 2 courses on early bird menu. It's a lovely place, well maintained, a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. It really was a treat.

Went to the Fisherman's Arms for lunch with my mother and my daughter. We have been before and have had no complaints. This time - a Wednesday - we were very rudely treated by an extremely young waiter who admitted the rudeness but saw nothing wrong in it. When we took the issue up with the owner he seemed not...

Came here for our annual club Christmas get together 35 of us. The £22 a head 3 course Christmas menu was FANTASTIC everyone was very complimentary about the food and the staff. The Fishermans is always well decorated and inviting and the private room suits us especially well. The only negative is the drinks, £4 a pint for my favourite... More

Our good friends invited us here and said they were regular visitors. Our friend had tried most of the chefs dishes and highly recommended the salmon, my wife said it was delicious. My choice was the cod and chips and believe me (I am a retired trawler skipper) it was fresh !! The menu choices were varied and I was... More

We had not only read good reviews, but had been told by friends that they had enjoyed meals here. Unfortunately this was really not our experience...... If you follow any of my reviews you will see that I rarely and infrequently submit poor reviews unless justified from the experience of quality in service and/or food received. On this occasion, we... More

Very nice resturaunt with excellent service and a relaxed atmosphere. Stayed overnight in an excellent room, great value for money. Highly recommend it as an alternative to the over priced lake side hotels. Nice setting easy to get to without the hassle of traffic and congestion that lurks around Windermere. Staff were first class. Thank. I will be back.

Went to the fishermans for my dad's birthday and we weren't disappointed! There is a 2 courses for £12 menu which the three of us had (pork confit and sticky toffee pudding). Absolutely beautiful, best sticky toffee I've ever had!!
