Poor service. We had to send the food back because the fish was not cooked through. Then they overcharged us on the bill!
Not a restaurant we will return too

I visited this restaurant with my fiance in March 2013. The restaurant is in great location close to all bars and lake.
The atmosphere is also nice, we sat upstairs but I would have preferred to been asked where I wanted to sit as I would of chose the seating area below.
The food was nice we ordered from the special which was 2 meals for £12.95. The menu had a good choice for different tastes.
The drinks however were quite pricey.
Food was nice.
If I was to visit Windermere again I would like to choose another restaurant to dine in.

This is our second visit to Jackson's and we were equally delighted second time around. The service is impeccable, food delicious and it has a really cosy but stylish without being pretentious feel to it. For main course I had the mussels from the specials board and hubby had steak, two courses with a drink each came to a reasonable £50 and they do have a set 3 course menu for £16.95 if you want a cheaper option. Would definitely recommend.

We loved Jacksons, every course was amazing and the staff were so helpful and friendly. A must when in Bowness!
