“Magnificent Hidden Gem”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We recently had a magnificent meal at the restaurant here. After a nice pre-dinner drink, we were seated in the atrium, which has spectacular mountain views. We ordered the 8 course tasting menu, which utilises locally sourced foods (and we saw the chefs and waiters running across the road and delving in to the garden to pick herbs/flowers!).
This was a fabulous meal. Every dish was perfect, particularly the duck egg with asparagus and mushrooms (one of the starters). Service was excellent also. All was washed down with a reasonably priced bottle of Argentinian malbec.
Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a special night out.

“A high class restaurant set in the hills”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We went to The Cottage in the Wood for our wedding anniversary on the last day of our holiday and it was the end to a perfect week. We had the 8 course taster menu which was amazing. The food was local, fresh, well prepared and presented and tasted amazing. The hosts were friendly and provided a good service. The views from the restaurant were breathtaking. A perfect evening.

“Best Food Ever”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

The Cumbrian menu was beautifully served and a wonderful experience, if you can, try it. The whole evening was a joy. They also have a separate menu if you want something different. If you need a special place for dinner, this will be the place for you. It really is that good.
