Ate here twice, once from the set menu, once a la carte. Both very good, but the set menu probably had the edge for both value and quality. Lively place, friendly service. Worth booking even early in the week if our July visits were representative.

We found this restaurant for an early dinner with the kids, expecting a good pasta and pizza choice and without any knowledge of where to eat this place looked nice and prices were good.
What a find!! The food was delicious, pizza's for the kids were lovely, my son ate the lasagne and I tried the braised rabbit pasta.....divine! Service was great we were very pleased and would definitely recommend.

We had a walk into Cockermputh on Saturday tea time from our hotel on the outskirts. The place seemed a total dump to be honest (although a different impression the morning after). The pubs all looked rough and there were a few drunks loitering on the street. We hadn't booked but I really fancied Italian so we were shown to a table but given a fair 2 hour time restriction. That was all we needed. The service was great and the food out of this world! I really wasn't expecting it...to be fair it could have gone either way! Massively impressed wouldn't hesitate to return if in area

Two families, booked in at fairly short notice, helpful staff, and the food was amazing. The pasta with chorizo in a creamy sauce was fab, as well as a risotto with I think Sea Bass or Bream. Great choices for the kids too. If we had been in the area longer I would have been delighted to go there more than once. Highly recommended.

looks great from inside and outside but food bland and wouldn't return, service good - maybe the chef was just on a off day
