Simply delicious food, and atmosphere. Highly recommend the smoked haddock and scallops dish, one of the best dishes I have had. Excellent value.

Cannot fault any of the three course meal we had...just the best...

The only thing that would help is a baby changing facility/table.

We were recent winners of a Facebook completion. The prize we won was a night at the Cranleigh Hotel ( also fabulous) and it included a six course meal at Porto's.

I used to live in the Lake District and I had visited this restaurant 20 years ago in its previous guise as the porthole and it was great then too.

We booked the restaurant over the phone. We arrived and were welcomed warmly and the best table ( booth) in The restaurant had been reserved for us.

The six course menu was presented to us, and my husband and I decided where there was options in the courses we would have different so that we could sample everything.

The meal kicked of with a cocktail which was delicious ( we also bought a bottle of Sancere which was lovely and very reasonably priced).

I had the crab cocktail and my husband had the smoked duck salad.

To follow my husband had the lame and I had the pork. My hubby said the lamb was delicious and I can say that the pork was really really good !

This was followed by lemon sorbet.

The desert choices were sticky toffee pudding soufflé (me) and strawberry and cream desert selection

All finished off with coffee.

I cannot recommend this restaurant strongly enough, if you have a chance do try and eat here.

we stumbled across this restaurant, and whilst it is small, and the menu was limited, there was enough for us to find meals we would like to try, we ordered 3 main courses between 2 of us as we are greedy, my friend ordered a ham and noodle soup which was tasty, our mains was a kind of seafood mixture which was very tasty , its a shame the restaurant isnt bigger as the quality of the food was better than the restaurant itself in terms of ambiance, however would definitely go back
