Description: The Jumble Room in Grasmere is now in its 20th year and from very humble beginnings their ethos has remained the same...Take the very best local and where possible organic ingredients and cook them with love and care.. Our small colourful little restaurant in Grasmere has become internationally renowned, not for pomp and circumstance but for a place to relax and forget our mad and hectic lifestyles...to escape....switch off... if only for a little while.... and leave with the light glowing a little brighter! It is said of the jumble room that it has soul, a small bohemian style restaurant, casual, honest, restorative and uncompromising in the pursuit of quality Prepared with love and served with pride!

It's an annual treat for us to have dinner here on our visit to the lakes and we were seated downstairs for the first time, which was massively entertaining as a couple of locals were having a lads night out! The four of us had a range of starters and we all had a taste of everyone else's with a fight nearly starting over the tempura prawns which were immense and fab! We all opted for the flat iron steak and skinny chips, on a recommendation of the local drunk and we weren't disappointed! None if us had come across this cut of steak before, the lovely waiter explained it was from the shoulder and had a run of sinew through it, which wasn't a problem for any of us. The steaks were all cooked perfectly, the rare was perfection according to the consumer, the two medium rare were just gorgeous, the chef on the grill knows how to handle cow! Skinny chips were perfect. The house Rioja went down a treat and was very well priced. We didn't have room for desserts. Stuffed and happily so. Another great night at the Jumble Room. We'll be back!

Having read some very good reviews for this place and as we were staying nearby we had to visit. We hadn't booked a table but was told to return in an hour and we would be seated, which indeed we were. First impressions of this quirky restaurant were excellent, very welcoming with warm and friendly staff. We were seated upstairs which had an unusual variety of tables and chairs, as I said quirky.Then the prawn starter arrived and the place went up even higher in my opinion. I have never had such good prawns, they were to die for. The chicken main course was also excellent. This restaurant gave us a memorable evening. My only disappointment is that we live two hours away so will have to wait for our next trip to Grasmere before we can visit the Jumble Room again. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Delicious meal here this week. Very relaxed atmosphere and it definitely has a vibe that is different to any other restaurant I've visited. I had the chicken which was divine and a very generous portion, which I failed to finish. If I had had a starter, I would have struggled even further! Service was attentive without being intrusive and what the Jumble Room perhaps lacks in space or an extensive menu, it more than makes up for in its originality.

Went here for a dinner with family. Instantly the ambience was fantastic. We were welcomed to a quirky table surrounded by bohemian style decor, old comic books and paintings. The staff were just lovely and the table decor was adorable! Starters were to die for - the duck, the bhaji and the pate! Gorgeous!! Unfortunately the main courses were heavy and potentially not as good as the starters but still yum! The steak was very tasty! All in all would recommend... Pick the thin chips over the fat ones :)
