“Always a pleasure to dine here”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We have been dining at Quince and Medlar for longer than I care to remember ! Over the many years we have always been delighted with the menu choice (we have such difficulty choosing each time!), the wonderful tasty and well-presented food, desserts to die for and the ambiance of this delightful restaurant. From the moment you arrive and your coats are taken, you are treated as cherished guests.
We were a party of seven on our last visit this November. Four of us were returning to one of our favourite restaurants, three were first-timers. All were impressed and look forward to their next visit. So do we !

“Veggie heaven”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Loved this restaurant in spite of not being a vegetarian. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the calm attention of our hosts before ,during and after the meal. The food was superb accompanied by a very good wine selection. The Q and M is not cheap but then again quality does cost and here it is in abundance,resulting in value for money.

“Veggie Delight”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We re-visited the Quince & Medlar after first finding it on a visit to Cockermouth over 20 years ago. There were some lovely dishes on the menu; it was very difficult to choose but I was very impressed with my starter and main course as were my husband and daughter. The autumn pudding was a delight; however my husband’s cheese board was a bit disappointing (the cheese was more supermarket than artisan). Nevertheless, we all thoroughly enjoyed a delicious meal without meat and would definitely visit again.

“Seriously delicious”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The food was so carefully thought out to ensure that the flavours were just right. What a delight to have eaten here. I'd love to return one day for another meal.
