We had eaten two nights in a row in our hotel and while the food was excellent we wanted a change of scenery and menu. Having walked during the day to Ambleside and had a mooch around, we saw the Mill and decided to return in the evening. The owner (or manager?) was so welcoming and friendly and the menu varied. I had the prepared crab salad and it was delish! I would certainly recommend this restaurant for service, value and atmosphere.

Sat outside in the lovely courtyard on a beautiful sunny day. The smoked salmon and prawn baguette was amazing. The lemon tart with orange coulis and raspberry sorbet was stunning. A beautiful lunch in a lovely setting.

This restaurant is in a converted mill which still has some of the machinery as part of the décor.
Good location in the centre of town, set on three levels with a section outside.
Nice menu, excellent customer service from the very friendly and efficient staff and above all excellent value for money compared to some of their competitors in the town.
The lamb was exquisite and overall, if we had stayed in Ambleside a bit longer, I am sure we would have gone back again. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Ambleside who likes good food in quirky surroundings - Excellent!

During our recent stay in Ambleside we had an evening meal at The Fulling Mill and were highly delighted with the occasion. We both choose the "Special" Sea Bass Shredded vegetables which proved to be absolutely superb, and based on this would certainly make our way to The Fulling Mill again. The waiter and waitresses could not have been any more helpful and made our evening certainly a memorable one. The only slightly negative point was that I believe you are unable to reserve a table in advance, which on this occasion did not bother us since there were ample tables available when we arrived. The only other slight point against is that the restaurant part we were in was up a couple of flights of steps though here again this was no problem for us. So I would give them 9 out of 10,

Popped in after a walk about Ambleside before going back to Grasmere where we were staying. Lovely little place very near the main car park so very handy. Lovely staff who were very polite & attentive. Had the soup of the day which was very nice though I wasn't expecting a mini piece of toast with cheese on floating in the middle of pot & leek soup, good job I like cheese? Reasonable prices too which is a big bonus in a place that's obviously designed for tourists. All in all a Nice place to visit..
