Absolutely perfect, service superb and food outstanding. A real find in a lovely location. Beef was to die for and great bread rolls.

Well worth a visit. Does't have a bar but a good range of top bottle local beers and the food is excellent.

We ate at the Oak Bank Hotel on the 30th July and have to say it was one of the best meals myself and my partner have ever eaten. We were not staying at the hotel but don't let this put you off, the service was incredible, the staff were friendly and informative but maintained an extremely relaxed atmosphere. The food can only be compared to a Michelin star restaurant both in flavour and in it's presentation. We can't wait to go back!

The food is superb and the menu is inventive. Good service and very reasonably priced wine list. A really pleasant dining experience.

We had been told by friends that this hotel did excellent dining so on our recent visit to the Lake District we travelled out of our way to sample the fare....We were not disapointed. The service and food were excellent.
The owner/manger, Simon, was friendly and helpful. Perfect service and good knowledge of the local beers and drinks that were on offer... We were not rushed or hurried, sat in the bar area whilst we looked over the menu.
Having made our choice and an order taken we enjoyed our conversation before being taken to our table. Not a great choice on the menu but we took that to mean it was cooked fresh with the emphasis on quality rather than quantity. . . Beware restaurants with long menu lists, the food comes out of the freezer!!
The food that was served was cooked to perfection, so tasty and beautifully presented. The wines on offer were wonderful, several glasses were consumed to make sure, purely in the services of market research you understand.
Our waitress, a young lady, was friendly and helpful. She chatted about the food and also provided local knowledge on places of interest to visit...She was perfect.

The cheese board was full of local produce, too much for the writer to finish, a doggy bag was kindly offered so we could take the excess home. . .so thoughtful.
The sweets were so delicious. Melting in the mouth, so tasty.
My friend chose to have a glass of the desert wine . . They were in raptures about its flavour.
The nice part at the end was the final bill . . Very reasonable... We have dined at other award winning restaurants in the village. . .This knocks spots off the other room.
You can be assured, we shall return.
