When we stopped in Windermere, we were drawn to the Magic Wok by reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. So we went down and had a fantastic tasty meal.

We sat in house in the restaurant. Okay, the decor is a bit dated and old but its clean and maintained and has a homely comfortable ambiance. The fish tank is fascinating to look at and draws the eye immediately. The service was impeccable. The...More
