We ate here back in September, and had a really lovely meal. We had been struggling to find a good restaurant in the area, but Matthew's fitted the bill perfectly. Our daughter managed to leave her toy mouse, and we were leaving the next morning. The 'front of house' guy came in early the next day, just so we could collect the mouse - thank you!

Spent two nights in Ambleside and ate here both nights as the meal on our first night was so good we had to return. Staff very friendly and efficient and the food was spot on. I would definitely recommend a visit.

We were a party of 5 adults and 3 children and booked here after finding it on this site high up on the list of good reviews. We were not disappointed. Apart from the kids we all ordered a different dish from the early evening menu and they were all fab. The kids meals were huge and were great value for money. As it was a special birthday for my Mum, we had previously arranged for her cake to be brought out after the meal. The whole restaurant (which was almost full) sang Happy Birthday and then the owner (?) brought us a knife, plates and even a jug of cream to go with it. We were not expecting this due to previous experiences in other restaurants when it comes to bringing your own cake. All in all, a fab meal, great value for money, lovely staff and when we come to stay in Ambleside again we will definitely return and recommend!

We really like this place and eat here each year when we holiday in Ambleside. We have never had a bad meal here. The portions are generous and the service is very good. We like the staff and owner and they are very courteous. Good value.
