“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We dined here on New Year's Eve and had booked quite far in advance. The food was excellent, very tasty and presented well. The staff were very attentive but not too intrusive. Great service and atmosphere, we will definatley be back the next time we are in the area!

“Glad We Booked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We ate here on the 2nd night of our 3 night stay in the area. We booked on our 1st night when we arrived as we thought they might get busy on a Saturday night....how right we were!!
We made a reservation for 6.30 to take advantage of the "early diner" offer.
We found this to be good value for money. Service, food and atmosphere were excellent. The layout of the tables means you are not sat right next to other diners. We had like our own little booth in the corner of the restaurant.
Whilst we were there several others came in asking for a table but the earliest they could offer a table was 8.45. So, if you do wish to eat here I would recommend booking in advance. I am so glad we did. The meal itself was tasty, just the main course seemed slightly stingy but was still very tasty. The chef was very accomodating. Even though we were eating from the set early diner menu he still altered one of the deserts slighly for my husband to make it more to his taste. 3 courses each, bottle of wine and service £60. Worth every penny!

“10/10 for food, atmosphere and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Winter Saturday just before Christmas and we were expecting everywhere in The Lakes to be much busier, thankfully it was quiet and we were able to get a table at this divine restaurant. The food is amazingly full of flavour and very well thought out, not too expensive either, averaging £5 for a starter and £14-20 for mains. Our evening was excellent, this place knocks the spots off everywhere else and we will certainly be coming back soon. Highly recommended.
