Cosy restaurant, attentive waitress, well-priced and GREAT food. Unusual and delicious black pudding starter (wife had tomato and feta salad); delicious and generous duck a l'orange (wife had gamberetti). If I can think of any criticism is that the house wine was only ok, bit it was ok. But I'll be back next time I'm in Cockermouth - it'll be hard to choose other than the duck.

I was recommended by a friend for the awesome fillet steak with a bed of flattend Yorkshire pud and patee. Of course I went for rare, it was perfect. My girlfriends meal was faultless too. I will be back, sooner than later. Thank you

We dined here one evening during a visit to the Lakes and were delighted with the food, service and ambiance of this small bistro. They have only about 6-8 tables and the room feels quite intimate. The menu is mainly Italian with a selection of English favourites. The main courses are about £8-9 for pasta and £14-20 for other dishes. The food is very good and the portion sizes are fairly large. Although they seem to only have one waitress on duty the service was pretty good, we rarely had to wait to be served drinks etc. Would visit this place again when in the area, if only for the sticky toffee pudding which was delicious and huge!
