“Friendly service in the Lakes!”
Reviewed November 6, 2010

Recently visited with friend for lunch. More of a 'cafe' style ambience than restaurant. Reasonable OK food. Warm goats cheese for starter. Main course monk fish/salmon - small portion. Friend had large chicken breast portion with 'non descript' sauce. We were the only customers eating, though it was a very wet autumn day.
Establishment advertises an extremely reasonable Sunday Lunch @ £7.95 only!

“excellent food and good value”
Reviewed August 1, 2010

We've been here a few times over the past 3 years and have always found it to be excellent. The early bird menu at £14.50 is what we go for and we have not been disappointed. I paid a bit extra and had rump of lamb on a mash and it was first class. The mash and gravy on its own would have been very good, but the rare lamb melted in your mouth. We couldn't manage a full pudding so we finished with ice cream and with a bottle of wine paid about £44 for two people.
The restaurant is owned by the chef which, I always feel, is a promising sign.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

16 of us went to Beresfords for my father's 50th birthday this weekend and we had a fantastic time. The bar downstairs was inviting and comfortable for both a pre and after dinner drink. The food was beautiful and at such a reasonable cost. The staff were quick, efficient and very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants somewhere local, fantastic food at good prices. We will definitley be visitng again especiallt for a special occassion!

“Casual, and surprisingly delicious food”
Reviewed June 24, 2010

Beresford's was just up the street from our B&B in the Lake District. We were looking for a quick and casual meal after a long day of beautiful weather that kept us out of doors later than we anticipated. The wood-paneled room was inviting and informal. We were expecting pizza and burgers, but saw quickly that we were involved in fine dining at a very high level and at rock-bottom prices for food this wonderful. Beresfords specializes in fresh, delicious local meats and produce and the young and enthusiastic kitchen staff has preparation down to perfection. Meats, vegetables and deserts were worthy of the finest establishments in Europe. Service was friendly and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant to the most discriminating of diners--just don't be fooled by the casual appearance.

“The boards outside this restaurant stated...”
Reviewed June 19, 2010

The boards outside this restaurant stated 'family friendly' and 'free gift for every child' so this seemed an ideal place to take our toddler and 3 month old baby. We booked a table for 5 people plus space for a pram by table and were assured this would be fine. Upon arrival, the rather snooty waitress said she had no record of our booking and we would have to leave the pram by the door as there was no space (in the empty restaurant! In her defence there was a coach party due to arrive any minute). She suggested to put my wobbly headed 3 month old in a high chair!!!! After looking at her in disbelief she found us a table with space for pram! After this initial bad start the rest of the evening proceeded without hitch. The food was delicious, the other staff and owner were friendly and attentive- only gripes were we had to wait quite a while for our main courses (due to coach party) and we didn't get our 'free gift for every child'!! We had the early bird set meal which was 3 courses for £14.50-very good value!
