Description: The Priest Hole Restaurant and Tea Rooms are part of Kelsick Old Hall, one of the oldest buildings in the beautiful village of Ambleside in the centre of the English Lake District. With many original features the atmosphere may not be edible, but it does play a huge part in your dining enjoyment, and our friendly young team work hard in a refreshingly casual, but attentive way, to provide a relaxed and enjoyable experience.We are happy to accept single diners and large groups. We have a delightful outside terrace for alfresco meals on those warmer days, or just to sit and have a coffee and watch the world go by. (Dogs welcome on the terrace.) Seperate dining area for special occassion group dining.

“WELL WORTH A VISIT”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

Went on their 2nd night of opening as it was undernew management greeted promptly we didnt book but were shown directly to a table and enjoyed a lovely meal at very good value
Minor hic up was their debit/credit card machine wasnt working (probably due to the take over) which they handled i a very nice way and we were also prewarned of this and we all enjoyed the meal etc
