“Outstanding”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This restaurant offers fantastic quality in under stated surroundings, definately one of the best restaurants in the Lakes at the moment. The Duck Liver Parfait was the smoothest I have ever eaten and delicious, Sea Bass excellent and the dessert called "Lemon" which was wafer thin merangue slices, lemon curd ice cream, raspberry and lemon jelly with lemon mousse was just sublime, if you going to the Lakes you must book this restaurant for dinner. Thanks to the inspired chef and well done to our excellent hosts.

“Blessed by an inspired chef and staff who modestly know they offer one of the best and good value menus in Cumbria.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We found this place thanks to Trip Adviser and it's reviewers. Although modest surroundings the staff are charming and informal and work well as a small team. The key is the excellent and imaginative menu which is well executed. Unlike many other Cumbrian restaurants that try to provide a fine dining experience and overcharge, this achieves the quality without charging any more than they should.
