Myself and partner decided to try here as the reviews on TripAdvisor were good. We weren't disappointed the food was very good and the staff could not be more helpful. The restaurant is a lovely place to eat and has a dog friendly part that was a bonus for us as we had our dog on holiday with us

Eight of us went for dinner on the night of the fireworks - despite being very busy, the service was excellent, the menu presented a real challenge - I was tempted by any number of dishes. Also the menu is personalised daily which is a nice touch along with a selection of reading glasses!. Given the all round dining experience - Lucy's is excellent value for money.

The staff here are great.. warm and friendly, but very professional and don’t bother you too much!!

Im a bugger for sending steak back because it’s not cooked the way I want it (blue). It usually comes rare, I send it back and a cold piece of meat replaces it.... not here. The food was lovely.
The ambiance is nice, the music is subtle and goes with the mood.

If you’re in Ambleside, this place is worth a go!

Thanks Lucy’s!

Came for a meal with my boyfriends family, absolutely loved it here! Each night the menu is personalised so you will get a special mention which is a lovely touch. Dog friendly as well, and they were given some treats too! Lovely menu, so much to choose from! Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! We were stuffed afterwards but it was worth it! We will definitely be coming here again!
