We dined here during our holiday at White Cross Bay. It is run by such courteous people who couldn't do enough to ensure we had a perfect visit. The food was delicious, and made even better because our two children ate for free! You might think that the free children's meals wouls be small, but like adult meaks, the amount if food was large. Bith of our children thoroughly enjoyed their meals, as did we. Very good value for money. I also sampled a cocktail which was equally as delicious. We will definitely be returning here on our next visit to Windermere. Thank you for such a lovely welcome and such delicious food!

We have been eating at the lamplighter for a few years now and have taken friends a couple of times. You are always made welcome and never rushed, the food and service are always spot on, plenty of choice and excellent quality.
When we have booked to stay in Windermere we always make our reservation with the lamplighter a few weeks before we go to make sure we get a reservation and always look forward to a return there.

Dear Peter B,

It is always lovely to welcome you and your friends to The Lamplighter and thank you for taking the time to write a review on trip advisor about your experiences whilst with us.

We absolutely pride ourselves on our levels of service, our welcome and also the quality of our food all of which you mention. Thank you also for mentioning about booking as over this weekend especially we had to disappoint so many guests that had not booked with us which we hate doing.

I very much hope that we will be able to welcome you back to The Lamplighter in the very near future and thank you once again for your kind words.

Best wishes

James & The Team

Cannot fault this restaurant, food and service exceptional. There are not many “proper” restaurants left these days and when you find one they are usually very expensive. For the quality of food and the service the Lamplighter is not expensive but a very special place to go. The staff are friendly and we did not feel rushed. We cannot praise this restaurant enough we will definitely go back when next in the area.

If you are looking for a top notch restaurant in Windermere then look no further. Can't rate this place highly enough. Always a very warm welcome, really nice bar area and the restaurant always feels special. Waiting staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Food is exceptionally good and its really hard to make choices from the menu as it all sounds so appealing! We've had many dishes in the past, my son loves the Fleetwood fish and chips, and my husband and I are devout fans of the Lakeland fillet steak but we've had fresh fish and a number of specials. Desserts don't disappoint so do try to leave a little room! We are looking forward to visiting again soon.

Excellent food, service and setting, would highly recommend.

There's no fuss here, perfectly cooked food, good choice on menu and a real portion on your plate.
