We were only in Ambleside for one night and thought we would give this one a try! We didn't book but as it was fairly early they had a table available! We decided to skip starters as we fancied dessert! He had the fish and chips and I went for the burger. Both meals were nicely presented and were very... More

If you are looking for top notch ingredients served with little fuss this is the place for you. The fillet steak and tuna were excellent quality cuts and as we both like our meat/fish rare the cooking stone provided the perfect opportunity to cook our food the way we like it. The staff were attentive without being overbearing and the... More

We had a beautiful Dinner here in late December 2016. This is a small family run restaurant just on the outskirts of Ambleside, very convenient and easy to park. The service is as you would expect, personal, attentive and friendly. The food was excellent, we both chose their speciality 'Steak on hot stones' and it was first class. Overall this... More

Visited my mum who lives in Ambleside. She'd booked the log house as she hadn't been there since it was taken over. Warm welcome and shown to our table. Mum had the posh scampi and I had the ribeye cooked on a hot stone. Lovely steak and mum loved the scampi and chunky chips. For dessert mum had the lemon... More

Arrived 30 mins before our reservation time so we ordered a drink and sat at the bar. As we chatted we saw several meals go passed and the fish and chips looked amazing. We don't normally order anything like fish, burgers or chips when we go to a restaurant but tonight we did. The fish and chips were about £14... More

Booked into this very popular and busy eatery for dinner meal. The service was first class as were the steaks served on piping hot lava stones so you finish cooking them to your taste.The wine list nicely compliments the Menu. There is a good choice for all tastes, but I must personally reccomend the Ribeye Steak, one of the best... More

To be honest I came away from this restaurant with words for a mixed review. The place was warm and welcoming on an icy November night. The front of house staff were friendly and the menu was simple, plenty of steaks fish and a few vegetarian options for myself. I think our expectations were higher than they should have been...
