Well, i'm nearly lost for words, which is very very unlike me as i'm a regular reviewer on Tripadvisor;-)
Truly, The Hideaway deserves its number 1 status!
From start to finish, the whole experience of dining here is outstanding, from the moment you are welcomed at the door, to the time the hard part comes and you pay the bill.
The whole atmosphere of the place is one of calm and relaxation.
The menu and wine list are offered to you in the lounge, enabling you to choose in comfort.
Not being a wine drinker myself, i tend to go for bottled beers
I feel the dining experience would benefit from a greater selection here, there's nothing outstanding in the way of something different to tempt you.
The food, well what can i say that hasn't already been said in previous reviews.
The food was just perfect from start to finish, i've never eaten 5 courses where every single course was so packed with flavour.
The standout dish for me was the amuse bouche of cauliflower soup, one mouthfull wasnt enough, but then again, neither would a bowl full have been;-)
The triple cooked chips were probably the 2nd best chips i've ever had (i'm not disclosing where number 1 is, you'll all be motoring to a certain chippy in Pudsey next!) and went down great with the excellent duck.
Both of us had the panacotta for dessert, which was on a par with the best i have had.
Service was great, the staff polite, well mannered, and seemed to care that you enjoyed your experience.
Lisa herself is very welcoming and friendly and stopped at every table during service for a quick chat.
The final bill came to just over £80 which for the quality and service, was a bargain.
Would i recommend The Hideaway..................................MOST DEFINATLEY!!!!!!!
In fact, the next time we come to Windermere, i'm staying here, cos i gotta check out if the breakfast is just as good;-)
