Tried the horseradish and beef baguette with a couple of very dry roast potatoes. There wasnt enough beef to taste in the baguette, just a few scraps. My boyfriend had the small carvary and left half,tasteless. I did expect a little more edible food, would not recommend it at all. The view of the lake is the only reason we came in, such a pity

The menu confusing, The carvery was okay, the vegetables luke warm and overcooked. The table was very sticky we had to go hunting for knives and forks. The whole place is grotty and needs a deep clean. The location is great if the place was updated and clean it would attract more guests.

For anyone who has eaten in a Crown Carvery you'll know exactly what I mean - very good food quality and choice (predominantly roast dinner carvery but other choices available) but the decor leaves a little to be desired. That said, it was probably the best one I have been in recently. Try and get a table towards the back and you'll overlook Lake Windermere, which coupled with the reasonable prices makes this an attractive place to eat. Bar staff aren't the quickest, but we were a group of 13 (prebooked and they had allocated us a whole section overlooking the lake).

We have eaten here a couple of times and the food is lovely and cheap. You get a nice view of the lake too which is a bonus. The only letdown, which for me with a young child is a big deal, is the disgusting toilets. We had to go into 5 different cubicles before finding one clean enough to use. Toilet seats are cracked, they smell awful and they are in need of a damn good scrub. To summarise... Use the loo before going in!

Been here four times now latest in March 2013. Nothing changes, you get a very decent meal at an unbelievable price for this part of Cumbria. It's nothing special but does a great job if you have kids in tow. The bonus is the location down by the lake with fantastic views. Well worth a visit.
