I understand these guys have been doing this for the better part of 25 years. Family business - looks like he cooks and she is front of house. Very friendly and assured, reasonably priced no nonsense, largely traditional English style home cooking.

The meal was good value and lots of it, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We went for the special had homemade soup which was very hot and tasty with some lovely fresh bread and the lamb chop with came with lots of veg, really good portions all cooked very nicely. It was a shame the special was the same all week. This is not a posh place but we would recommend it. We ate early after a hard days walking, this place had a steady stream of people, lots trying the special.

Had a really good meal here at the Ambles Brasserie. There was a decent menu to choose from plus a special of the day.Nice selection of starters and sweets. Three of us did have the special which was double lamb chops in a red wine sauce with seasonal vegatables and our fourth diner had the grilled salmon.
The food was very good indeed and would happilly dine there again. Staff were friendly helpful and attentive. Drinks and wine menu covered most needs and at reasonable prices.
Service was very efficient and even speedy you might say as compared with some restaurants.
All in all well worth a visit we will again. Thank You..

Excellent food and good value for money. Have been there a few times now when I camp beside Windermere, it is nice to know a good local restaurant selling good local foods
