me and my boyfriend spent a weekend in bowness and our hotel didn't have a restaurant so we searched for somewhere near by and everywhere was almost full up with it being short notice, but we managed to get a table for 2 in the golden fortune, the food was ok brought out very fast and wasnt a long wait, small portions and after a 2 courses we could of defiantly ate it all again as it didnt full either of us up but was reasonably priced , a second visit to the golden fortune how ever totally changed our minds.. returning months later with our 3 year old son we were greeted by a young polite woman that didnt speak fluent english so couldnt understand much we were saying, she took our drinks order and come back with it totally wrong, as we had our son and my boyfriend was driving we couldnt have alcohol and had ordered all soft drinks when we told the waitress she looked at us confused and went to talk to the owner about it, he come over and told us angrily that we had ordered the drinks, my boyfriend argued that we had only asked for soft drinks for him to look extremely angry, snatch the drinks away spilling one in the process all over our table. a short wait later we had our food order taken for them to bring one of the meals out wrong as once again the waitress must of miss heard us even after we double checked with her to avoid a repeat of the first drinks order, we didnt mention this to anyone as we didnt want the owner to get aggressive, he seemed to shout at his staff alot and talk down to them in front of customers which was very off putting, overall - the place could do with a face lift, average food, but reasonably priced and quick service. would rather take my custom else where to get the service i deserve specially in front of my 3 year old son. would not return!

doesn't look much from the outside but this is the second time we've eaten there and it was excellent both times.
Couldn't believe how cheap the food was for this quality.
