I re-visited the Log House recently with 5 other friends, and would just like to say how much we enjoyed it, no problem with the food or service (as usual). I don't normally do tripadvisor reviews, but I thought it was only fair to share my own good experience of the establishment, after noticing a couple of poor reviews which... More

Dear Colarado36 Thank you for your review which I will share with the rest of the team. It was a pleasure to have you at our restaurant and I am glad that the service and food was too your liking. I do agree with you regarding that cyber space can be a platform for literary bullying, perhaps we could be... More

Having been to Ambleside many times over recent years, and visited most pubs and restaurants in the town and locality, I had never been to this one before and decided with my family group that it was worth a try. My family group included two young children, so we decided to visit early in the evening in order to get... More

Just to validate this review I visited last week with my wife whilst we stayed in Ambleside for the week. I do refer to other reviews as the proprieter seems hell bent on trying to stop any poor reviews being put on here or even being abusive and very personal to those who do give poor reviews. I refer to... More

Called in early Saturday evening with friends who had their heart set on another restaurant for dinner. Have been past a few times and wanted to take a look! First impressions....wow, what a lovely setting. Was very quiet so we sat at the bar. The staff could not have been any more friendlier. The food we saw being served made... More

This cracking little restaurant is definitely one of Ambleside's best kept secrets! I'm a regular and cannot fault the place! I was taken aback by a couple of recent reviews which gave misleading impressions of the reality! I love their classical French soup; which is a hearty starter! It's packed full of flavour and reminds me of my many visits... More

Dear lakesrocker 7 Thank you for taking the time to post such a supportive review for the Log House. We were also taken aback by some of the more recent posts and although people will read our responses as defensive and biased, reviews like yours restore our belief in genuine people.

This was our second visit and as the first was excellent, saw no evidence of a drunk in jeans! But very attentive staff no complaints about the food and would highly recommend. All I can say to the negative comments is take the kids to McDonalds lol !!

We love Ambleside, my family and I have been coming for years.......however we hated this place. (I call it "place" as restaurant gives it too much credence). I really do not have enough words to describe how awful it was! Save your money and go somewhere much better like Dodds, Doi intanon or even the local chippy. We went at... More
