Noting the high rating on Tripadvisor my wife and I visited this hotel whilst on holiday. This was an excellent decision. Although not residents we were made to feel very welcome and the whole dining experience was an absolute pleasure. Four courses, every one a treat. Friendly helpful staff advised on choice of puddings and we look forward to more visits here.

We didn't stay at this hotel but my parents did and we joined them one night for a meal! The hotel is a beautiful building tastefully decorated throughout with a lovely garden! Meal was gorgeous and portion sizes spot on! Staff very attentive! Would most definitely recommend!

Everything was absolutely superb. This is a gem of a restaurant in a beautiful setting. Food well presented. We hope to return.

From canapés in the spacious drawing room to the exceptional deserts, this was a wonderful dining experience.

The service was friendly but unobtrusive and we were made to feel relaxed in what is a fairly formal restaurant.

As regards value, at £25 a head, you will be unlikely to dine anywhere and receive this quality of food and standard of service anywhere else, most especially in the Lake District, where you dine at a premium.

Highly recommended.

A well-kept lovely stone and slate exterior to this Lakeland hotel restaurant almost belies the high standards of, well, everything inside! The welcome was warm, the service absolutely top-notch, rapid and helpful but not intrusive. The lounge to sit in before and after the meal was very well appointed and tranquil, with a high standard of decor.
The menu gave a good choice whilst not wildly extensive, with a similar approach to the wine list. Perhaps this is how the food is (reliably by previous comments) unfailingly good. We had welcome canapés, then superb homemade bread, three delicious starters, soup/sorbet, and very good main courses (Supreme of guineafowl with a pink peppercorn and tarragon sauce and two Lamb braised with redcurrants and thyme served with a lamb cutlets. Then followed a sweet course, and even the two of us with good/huge appetites were satiated.
There aren't a large number of tables, which means that you need to book, but also that at times the atmosphere was occasionally muted, and it was a very adult crowd so perhaps not the bestplace to have unrestrained children. We'll be coming back.
