We dined here twice when visiting Ambleside.
First visit we had the happy hour menu which was very tasty and amazing value.
Second visit we went a la carte when I had the best fillet steak cantonese ever.
Friendly and welcoming-highly recommended.

Takeaway from the China cottage was bland and a bit flavourless, will be sticking with the lucky dragon next time.

Not the most luxurious Chinese restaurant we've ever eaten in & also a little cramped, but the food was very good.
We opted for the £18 a head banquet consisting of a mixed platter to start followed by crispy duck pancakes then 3 different main courses served with fried rice.
All the food was piping hot & was not over seasoned, as a lot of Chinese food tends to be.
Overall a good dining experience that was great value.

Late decision to eat here, welcoming and comfortable. Delicious food, plenty of choice, full of flavour and very reasonably priced.

A rainy weekend in the lakes found us not wanting to venture out far for our last meal of the weekend. The china cottage opposite B&B's on Lake road at the start of the one way system was welcoming, bright and warm. The food was excellent.
Wine list was good also. The food was hot fresh and tasty. Prices comparable £50 for a banquet for 2 with a nice bottle of Chilean red, would definitely recommend.
