“Amazing vegetarian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

We planned a visit here without realizing where it actually was. The location is amazing, just out of Grasmere, and the feeling I got when I was there of peace and timelessness I have only ever felt once before in a remote hideaway in Madagascar. We sat outside and ordered starters and mains each, as we'd skipped breakfast. Each dish was amazingly colourful, seasoned perfectly, totally unique and just tasted amazing. The effort and skill that had gone into each presentation was unbelievable. You would expect that a vegetarian restaurant would do something a lot better than my wife's pet hates - goat cheese tart or risotto, but this food was so good I'd happily eat this instead of meat in any restaurant anywhere. I had a salad followed by rarebit, and my wife had the cauliflower and almond soup, followed by a "dinner" choice, as her lunch choice wasn't available. This meal consisted of a bit of everything, brightly coloured carrot and beetroot, a slice of nut roast, onions in gravy, berries and apple sauce. Absolutely amazing. Very friendly staff who encouraged ourselves to feel at home ! this was the perfect choice for our lunch on our day out. And, did I mention, the location is wonderful too.

“Superb vegetarian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

The choice of dishes for vegetarians and vegans here is excellent. The tapas plate and Mediterranean dishes give it an international flair without any pretentiousness. The wine list nicely complements the menu.
Our favourite (even for the carnivores) was the choice at breakfast - I've been a vegan all my life and have never had such a great choice for cooked breakfast! Highly recommend the potato cake, but then again, the carnivorous husband was delighted with his full English and didn't feel like he missed out - that must be the highest compliment!

“A 'find'.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

We were walking in the Langdale area and were attracted by the details of the lancrigg veggie restaurant. What a delight it was. We called in for a morning coffee to assess the place and vowed to return the next day. We returned after a very wet climb up to Easedale Tarn. The lunch was delicious and we had a window table giving a stunning view. The Spanish waitress was very helpful. It was probably not surprising that we were alone in the restaurant because of the grim weather. The historical associations of the house added to the charm of the place.
One oddity was the small size of the room with the lavatory. It would not be difficult to wash one's face at the same time as being seated!
We had a walk in the grounds among the impressive trees and saw several roe deer.
We will try to visit again in Spring/summer weather.
