2 couples enjoyed the wonderful food, atmosphere, and company while overlooking Lake Rousseau from the balcony seating. Prices are acceptable and serving staff were wonderful!

I've been here many times and will return. There are two outdoor restaurants. The ground floor is decent pub grub and with lots of seating outdoors on the stone patio with a beautiful view of Windermere and the lake. Upstairs on the veranda is a little more up scale (but still relaxed and not very expensive) serving sushi and anglo... More

Tried their Chicken & Mushroom Penne which was absolutely amazing! Our server was Ben who was very friendly and knowledgeable. I went back a day later to try it again and was totally disappointed-must have been a different chef! The dish was bland with no spices added. Mentioned this to the server and she just ignored my comment. I was... More

Was here with friends and the food was very good. I had the beef short rib "bowl", and others had the regular burger and the turkey burger. My meal was exceptionally delicious and very filling. It was, however, as many other reviewers have noted, difficult to get timely service. Staff did try to fill in for each other, and in... More

Nothing good to report except for the view. We were seated at an empty table, no cutlery, glasses, condiments or menus. We sat there for 20 min before a waitress approached and asked about drinks. Another 20 min and water and beer were brought. Prices for sushi were exceptionally high. Finally got a small order of cold edamame. Then came... More

If you're staying at the Windermere House, there are a few options for food, and their Pub is certainly a decent one. There's a nice outdoor patio and lots of inside space as well. Service is good and friendly. Food options are typical for a pub. Beers are served nice and cold. In our experience, the pizzas are very good,... More

We arrived at the Windermere House early and decided to have lunch on the patio at the Pub. The view is spectacular and we had the added bonus of having a wedding going on so live music was being played right next door. The food is upscale Pub Grub but it was very tasting and came out quite quickly given... More

I came here for lunch with my two sisters. I ordered a glass of white wine and when it was brought to me I noticed immediately that the glass was filthy. It was taken away and when the second glass arrived it looked like someone had just wiped the original glass instead of giving me a new glass. I discussed... More

We had lunch on the patio here with another couple. The patio over looks Lake Rosseau. My chicken wrap was perfect as was my wife's salad. Service was excellant. Menu had a good selection. A garden wedding ceremony was taking place 100 feet away from us. Congratulations Windermere on a gem of a patio on the shores of Rosseau. Would... More
