Six of us came here for a special occasion,we were pleasantly greeted by our host and made to feel comfortable in the bar before continuing to the restaurant,perusing the menu over an excellent glass of Chardonnay. However we felt that the menu was very restricted and the food was not terribly adventurous,shame.

Thank you very much for reviewing. We do work hard to keep the menu interesting by changing it with the seasons, sourcing the best local produce and creating a menu with "something on it for everyone". We have a very wide cross section of guests and do our best to produce delicious food for all tastes. For anyone wishing to... More

Never had anything but first class food on all our visits, not a huge menu but carefully chosen ingredients and beautiful presentation, attention to detail is always displayed.

Cedar Manor was recommended by our hotel. Our welcome was charming, food was very good, the winelist was very good, and service was excellent. What more can you ask for? My only slightly negative comment would be that most of our party opted for gravadlax followed by rib eye steak. All of which were excellent, but which suggests to me... More

Booked Cedar Manor for our wedding anniversary while on holiday with family. The restaurant was intimate, beautifully decorated, and perfect for the occasion. They had gone to the effort of acknowledging our special occasion by some simple but beautiful decorations on the table. The menu was excellent, with a wide range of choices. I had the rib-eye steak that was... More

Recently went here for an evening meal with my parents for their wedding anniversary. Last time we visited was roughly 8 years ago and the service and food was how i remember...perfect. The decoration in the lounge had been changed, very comfortable and cosy. The resturant was cosy too. Food and service was perfect. Couldn't fault anything.

We have eaten in numerous places in and around Windermere and Bowness, but had never found this place until now. We were given a voucher to stay here as, at the time the voucher was bought, it occupied the no. 1 spot. It should be there permanently. The food is wonderful, different and very tasty. It also comes in large... More

Didn't stay here, although it looked lovely, but ate in the restaurant twice. The food was outstanding and the ambience was both relaxing and sophisticated. The hosts, Caroline and Jonathan, we're both charming and very welcoming. If you only eat out once when you stay in the Windermere area you must eat here. You won't be dissapointed.

Description
First built in 1854 as a private country retreat and housing an unmissable 200 year old cedar tree in its grounds, tradition and a sense of place are important to both the look and the food at The Cedar Manor Hotel and Restaurant. You will find Cedar Manor offers a seasonally changing a la carte and table dhote menu of classic British food on which all produce is sourced from providers based in the surrounding Lake District. Open to guests and non-residents, one might want to relax with a book in the cosy hotel bar and take in the views of the nearby Lake Windermere before taking a seat in the restaurant which has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes.
