Ate here last night and had the most amazing meal. We come from Brighton where it is very easy to pay for an overpriced load of rubbish, so having the food here at a comparative reasonable price we were very impressed. The staff were all very friendly and the service was brilliant. The restaurant was very busy and we arrived quite late and we were told there might be delays, but there was none. I had the lamb followed by the sticky toffee soufle. It was delicious, my hubby had the arancini and steak and loved it. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Ate here during birthday weekend in Bowness and it was excellent. Really small downstairs but think it has an upstairs as well. Starters and main courses we had were imaginiative and excellently presented backed by superb quality (Porto Pig Wow!). Really wished had room for dessert which also looked fantastic but we were both too full.
Waitress who served us was really good and can only advise you try it when in Bowness

Our party of 6 had a great meal here, there's nothing much I can add to the other reports. Referring to the last review we asked if the lighting could be altered because it really was too bright and this spoilt the atmosphere completely, our waiter advised that the dimmer switch was broken so hopefully they will sort this out. A complete surprise on the evening was seeing Duncan Bannatyne (a regular apparently) having dinner with Warwick Davies - they got to sit upstairs where the lighting was better obviously!!! Service and food were brilliant.
