We have been coming to this area for holidays for several years and have seen the Chalet transformed from a basic cafe into a wonderful cafe/restaurant which caters for everyone (including dogs!). The interior design is beautiful and a credit to the owners whose vision must be applauded.
We have had lunches here ranging from delicious soups to wraps and salads and decided to give the evening menu a try. How glad we were that we did. The dishes are imaginative and delicious - the monkfish with curried lentils and a wonderful array of vegetables was to die for and the pork (my husband's choice) was tender and beautifully cooked. I intend to attempt to replicate the starter of summer punch poached pear with goat's cheese at home.
The service was faultless and although the restaurant was full and there were only two waitresses we at no time felt neglected or forgotten. We will be back.

Visited with the family. The menu, whilst not extensive has something for everyone. Extensive range of wines by the glass. The waitress (who is the owner I think) didn't stop for a second. The service was efficient, but not over friendly as they were too busy. Overall, would definitely go back.

Cycled here after reading some reviews and decided to give it a try.

Lovely little place with seating outside - its covered in some parts which is nice when its typically changeable lake district weather!

I had the applewood cheese & potato pie with red onion marmalade - really delicious and accompanied with a really fresh and varied salad. My husband had one of the pulled pork pockets - safe to say it kept him quiet ;)

Portions were generious so didn't have room for cake - but took a scone back with us...has to be done...

Will definitely be back here when we're next visiting the Lakes. Very friendly service, lots of cyclists & dog walkers here too.

We stopped off here after hiring kayaks from Derwent Water Marina. Luckily the portions were generous and tasty - we had the Toasted Portinscale Pockets which went down a treat followed by excellent ice creams. Recommended.
