Great find in Windermere.
Lovely food, nice staff and good service.
Lasagne is delicious - we both had it.
Wine is well priced too.
Good atmosphere.
Definitely recommend.

Stayed in Windermere for the 1st time last week and visited on a Thursday night, was by far the busiest place in the whole town after wondering round looking for somewhere to eat for a good half hour. We assumed this meant it must be good so thought we'd give it a go.

The staff were very accommodating despite the restaurant being full and after waiting at a table for a short time outside whilst looking at the menu, the staff invited us indoors and sat us downstairs - one of the staff kindly told us he would find us a table upstairs when available as it is much nicer atmosphere.
He wasn't wrong, the restaurant upstairs is lovely and we were sat next to the window looking out onto the town.

The menu was huge with lots to choose from but all meals coming out looked impressive.
We had 3 courses and were very impressed. Good size portions too!

The only odd thing was the whole no card payments, so we have guestimate how much it would cost prior to the meal to withdraw some cash.

Other than that, would definitely visit again! :)

Excellent food and service, really good atmosphere would have been 5 * if it wasn’t for the cobwebs in the lights above our heads! But will still recommend without hesitation.

We called in on the off chance of a table, after being recommended by the B&B that we were staying at. Taken upstairs to a nice room, chose out own table. Staff were very friendly and the food was really good, would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
