My boyfriend & I went to the oak bank to eat in August while on holiday in Grasmere. All I can say is that as soon as we arrived we were treated like royalty. The service was impeccable. We both went for the 3 course menu which was exceptionally good value. The choice was varied and sounded amazing. When the starters came we couldn't believe our eyes, I opted for a deconstructed prawn cocktail which had the best presentation I have ever seen. That goes for every dish we were presented with. I would also recommend the pana cotta. I dont think I would have been disappointed with any of the dishes though. The only let down of the night was the atmosphere, we were the last ones in to eat so it was quiet anyway but we felt like we had to whisper the whole time. We were seated in a modern conservatory and the decor was unimaginative. I think if they re-look at this though the whole experience could be incredible. It was one of the best food experiences I have ever had. Thanks for a great evening, we will be back.
