My husband had kept the destination of my birthday meal a surprise until we pulled alongside the car park! The whole evening was first class. We arrived on a beautiful summer's evening as the sun was setting over the lake and then were shown into a sumptuous lounge area where we enjoyed drinks and a canape. The gourmet menu for the evening was wonderful, every course delicious, accompanied by fantastic wine. The service was exactly as we would have expected and the timings between courses was perfect.Sharrow Bay is definitely a wonderful treat to be enjoyed by lovers of fine food and drink.

The food is excellent,beautifully presented but slightly slow to arrive . The sommelier is at the top of his game but the " back " restaurant has had an atmosphere by-pass.

Firstly, if you want glaring, glistening, gleaming surroundings, then Sharrow is not for you. If , instead, you want to be cosseted, cared for and charmed, both by the staff and the surroundings, then you will have hit the jackpot at Sharrow. My husband and I have been twice to this beautiful old hotel and on both occasions, left feeling we had had a total re-charge of our batteries. The food is excellent in both presentation and taste and if you enjoy a " real " cuppa, then you will be bowled over by the loose leaf tea, china teapots and solid silver tea strainers. This place can even turn having a cup of tea into an occasion. It is quite simply a little piece of perfection.

We where given a gift voucher as a present for a overnight stay am=nd meal at the Sharrow Bay hotel in a lake side room, Silver. The room was light and airy with spectacular views of Ullswater but could do with some renovation. I believe this will take place in the next 12 months.

The 6 course meal more than made compensated for any deficiency in the accommodation.
The service was excellent food fantastic. The wine list, choice of spirits and cheese splendid and much better than the Sommer Lodge or Hotel Tress Islas

Had the 10 course taster menu, absolutely magnificent, recommended if you have money spare. The restaurant is really charming and the view of Ulswater is stunning. We went with our great friends of thirty seven years and had a memorable experience.
