“Best restaurant in Kendal”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We came here for New Year. There was just 4 of us and we had a reservation at 7pm. The restaurant staff told us that we could arrive at any time and that there was no rush for us to be out, as the table was ours for the evening. We arrived at about 6:45pm and had a glass of sparkling wine and some canapes whilst we looked over the menu. We were sat at a table next to the bar which at first I thought would be a bit of a problem, people standing by us to get drinks etc but only staff were at the bar and they were very friendly and drinks were served quickly!
All the food was excellent! The steaks were cooked perfectly, the peppercorn sauce was to die for! And the desserts were amazing!
Admitedly it was a little pricey but it was New Year and the food was excellent, as was the service, that we felt it was justified.
I will definitely be returning to this restaurant and would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!

“Delicious Quick Lunch”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Off out for the day and got drawn in by the menu on the window and it was worth it. £9.95 for a taste of french cuisine, a starter and a main and both so scrumptious that we both went for desserts too. The sauce on the sizzling steak almost had us licking the skillet it was served in. Service was friendly and attentive. Not that I got to see it for long, the sticky toffee pudding was the best my husband had had. He was raving over it. So very glad to have stopped by and will definately be going again.
