We loved the ambience of the restaurant. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and the steak was cooked to my liking.

Tried and failed to get in last time we came to the lakes. This time I booked well in advance and sure enough it was fully booked on the night. A birthday celebration was a great success as the dining experience and food were fantastic. Our new favourite restaurant in Ambleside. We will definitely be returning next visit.

My wife and I had a lovely meal in the restaurant on both of the evenings we stayed and were delighted to be seated in the bay window on both occasions. My wife particularly enjoyed the soufflé starter on the first evening and I enjoyed my black pudding. We both had the lamb shank which was delicious. On the second evening we both had the scallop starter which was perfect and I had the game pie which was extremely tasty and my wife had the beef which she said was melt in the mouth. The breakfasts were equally nice. The restaurant was nicely laid out and looked very plush with nice decor.
The service was excellent. The staff were polite, courteous and friendly but not overbearing.
Would come again.

Lovely dining room and excellent staff who were extremely polite and helpful. The food is of a very high standard. My lamb shank was flavoursome and fell of the bone. Breakfast choice second to none.
