“What a delicious tart...!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

I have previously visited this restaurant when it was The Glass House. So thought I'd give The Fulling Mill a try. It's a quaint place to eat with the mills cogs and wheels working around you! The food was delicious and most of all the pudding, Lemon Tart with a raspberry sorbet in a brandy snap basket, yum yum yum yum yum- could have eaten that again! Delicious!

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

This Restaurant has changed its name, it used to be The Glass House. We looked at the menu, and it seems to be reasonably priced considering the Lakes general prices. They serve Sunday lunch from 1200 to 1430. We were impressed, the meal was very good, they certainly have a Chef who knows how to make Yorkshire Pudding. Everything was cooked just right. The staff were pleasant, and we enjoyed our Lunch. Another visit is on the cards.

“A great start to our holiday!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Having read the previous reviews on Trip Advisor, The Fulling Mill was on our list of restaurants to visit; we certainly weren't disappointed.
We were glad to have booked earlier in the afternoon as the restaurant was full and passing customers were disappointed not to get a table. As we'd arrived early we started with a drink in the downstairs bar area which has a relaxed, warm atmosphere.
The food itself was delicious. Between us we had the goat's cheese salad and pulled pork as our starters, rump of lamb for main (with the softest dauphinoise potoatoes I've ever had the pleasure of eating) and a sticky toffee pudding and raspberry crème brûlée for dessert. The menu has a footnote explaining that there may be a wait between courses as the food is cooked to order; the wait was minimal and we both felt it was a shame that a restaurant serving fresh food should have to explain this!
All of the staff were accommodating and polite, checking between courses that everything was ok. After dinner we finished with a nightcap in the bar and had a brief and pleasant chat with the owner about the restaurant. We shared a lovely bottle of prosecco with our dinner and there appeared to be a good selection of wines.
I would highly recommend visiting The Fulling Mill and am tempted to visit again before returning home!
