Went here for dinner my first night in Ambleside on a recommendation from a local couple. It was steak night that night, and I indeed had steak. The steak was fine. A well cooked normal steak, nothing too fancy or flashy about it, with sauce and veggies I ordered in addition. It was a good size and came very promptly. The two ladies working the restaurant were incredibly friendly and helpful.
The dessert I had on the other hand was possibly the worst dessert I've had in some time, and left a bad taste in my mouth literally and figuratively. It tasted like it had just come out of the freezer, and was so saturated with the juices of the berries that you couldn't taste the bread component at all (to be clear it was the berry bread pudding dessert). I don't know if it's normal in the area to serve bread pudding cold, but I've never had it served that way. And I usually LOVE bread pudding!
So, I'm not sure if it was just me, but I ended up being pretty disappointed. Overall I'd say the experience was fine, which is why I'm giving three stars. There was nothing in particular that pushed it to four stars for me, or a very good rating. Truly the best part of the whole evening was how friendly the staff was.
