“excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

The food quality was excellent. Before we booked (which you must do to avoid disappointment) we had shown our friends an old menu we had. One of our friends decided she would love to have smoked salmon and potatoe pizza. When we arrived the menu was change so my friend ask the waitress could she have the pizza she had seen on the old menu, the waitress was very uncertain but went to see the chef and my friend got want she wanted. We all enjoyed our food and the staff were very polite

“Excellent for lunch not sure about the evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

I have visited No 17 on many times for lunch and always enjoyed it.

In mid December 3 of us visited for dinner and we were all a bit disappointed. The food was excellent as usual our disappointment was with the decor and atmosphere.

We were placed near the window which has no blinds or heavy curtains. It was a cold night and there was a draught from the window. I put my coat on so that I wasn't too cold. All lights were fully lit - no quaint semi - darkness here. I felt a bit like a fish in a glass bowl. If we had been a couple this would not have been the place for a romantic night. The white walls and scant decor work well during the day but on a cold evening it resulted in a stark / hard ambience.

Many people were seated in the bar area then taken upstairs leaving the feeling that those downstairs were missing out on the 'real event' . Upstairs had music - downstairs we listened to their music as we had none. There were empty table downstairs - including at least one table for 4 - but groups of 4 were still taken upstairs. Left us all with the feeling that we were downstairs to encourage passers by to call in.

Will happily return for lunch but think I will go else where of an evening.

“Xmas Meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We booked a midweek meal before Xmas. Atmosphere was awful and drab, no party feel, no crackers and lack of decorations! Lighting was eventually lowered for our sweets.....too little too late! As this was a "busy" period we had to order and pay a deposit in advance but the place was not full. Two of us were ill, they were informed in good time and the table was set for 6 not 8 but they still insisted on charging £10 for each missing place.
Food was fine but the service was very poor, main courses brought out in several trips when it should have arrived all together and we were then asked about wine when the food was on the table meaning that it was cooling whilst the deliberations took place. Service was also far too rushed with no time between courses and our comments on leaving fell on deaf ears.......POOR

“Delightful food well worth a visit en-route to or from The Lakes. Milnthorpe priced, but high end quality.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Relaxed and pretty informal dining but the food quality and presentation befits a high end restaurant. Menu variety excellent and portion size of main course was perfect after a long walk. We sampled three different starters, all superb. Three courses for under £17 is priced because it's Milnthorpe. In a City Centre, I'd have felt still very good value at double this price.

“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Visited for a friends birthday. This was fine dining at its best. Could not fault one thing, the food was excellent, presentation fantastic, and the service was brilliant too.

This really is a gem of a restaurant in a tiny village, I will most certainly be dining there again as I am a regular visitor to the wonderful Lake District.

Would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Lake District.
