“Good food and service on Gourmet Society list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Visited midweek on Gourmet Society recommendation. Very quiet for a sunny early evening when Bowness centre was quite busy, but a very courteous welcome by an experienced and knowledgeable gentleman (probably the self same mentioned in "Anne311247"'s review) got the evening off to a positive start. We just missed out on the early evening special offer, so went "a la Carte". Wine arrived immediately and starter soon after. Main courses were good, if not memorable a couple of weeks later. Prices OK for the location and good value with the Gourmet Society discount.

“Value for money meal, of great quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Extensive menu choice, a relaxed atmosphere, helpful attentive staff, and value for money. We opted for the two courses for £9.95, both having Stilton & Broccoli Soup, then a pan fried salmon and a lamb roast, excellent all round.

“Food delicious; accept Tastecard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

The only thing that marred the wonderful food and the great service was the woman shouting loudly at staff in the kitchen. Probably affected the atmosphere a bit in contrast to the lovely music and decor of the restaurant. They did accept our Tastecard and we can highly recommend the roast. Wine list reasonably priced too.

“Roast beef at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

We dropped in here on Friday evening for a drink on our way back from town. Its about halfway between Bowness and Windermere. We were served by a very friendly & helpful mature gentleman who really made us feel welcome. Because of this we booked a table for Sunday lunch. The Sunday lunch was delicious and the roast beef in particular was the best we have ever tasted, the enormous homemade Yorkshire pudding wasn't bad either. We would highly recommend the Beresford to anyone in the area as it offers good food, good value and staff that are very efficient and very friendly. They also have the tallest pepper mill I have ever seen. We will return next time we visit the area.

“Lovely meal ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Great location situated on the road between bowness and Windermere but sadly wasn't very busy as guessing it's not in the main hustle & bustle of bowness many people would venture up here at night - they are missing out as food was lovely. Tasted good, well presented and cooked fresh - staff were genuinely very friendly & welcoming. They probably need to advertise a bit more to attract evening diners as seen to attract a lot of Japanese/foreign coaches, thus would also add to the atmosphere too. We managed to use out taste card here too which was a bonus !
