Description: The Jumble Room in Grasmere is now in its 20th year and from very humble beginnings their ethos has remained the same...Take the very best local and where possible organic ingredients and cook them with love and care.. Our small colourful little restaurant in Grasmere has become internationally renowned, not for pomp and circumstance but for a place to relax and forget our mad and hectic lifestyles...to escape....switch off... if only for a little while.... and leave with the light glowing a little brighter! It is said of the jumble room that it has soul, a small bohemian style restaurant, casual, honest, restorative and uncompromising in the pursuit of quality Prepared with love and served with pride!

“Brilliant dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

We had a fantastic meal here. Interesting and tempting menu, good wine list, friendly staff and relaxed, casual atmosphere. Ask for a table down stairs to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the restaurant and a peek into the tiny kitchen!

“Don't tell anyone!!”

We have been eating here for ten years. The food is magic. The owner is lovely. A fabulous wee fantastic place in an oasis where there is a dearth of decent restaurants.

“Best food in Grasmere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Great straightforward and friendly service. Food was a mix of well-known dishes, but with twists and flavours that are a little surprising, but welcome nonetheless. The desserts were as lovely as the mains and the starters. There was imaginative use of a very small dining room, and a kitchen so small that one wonders how they serve all the meals from such a confined space.

The experience is one that will take around an hour, as tables are evidently flipped quickly (a function of how popular the food and place are). So don't expect to arrive at 7 and leave at 9-30 having spent the whole evening chatting over one bottle of Chablis.

Downside was that it is perhaps just c5-10% more expect dive than it should be, given the area. But given your choices and quality of good, you may as well resign to paying, 5-10% too expensive or not.

“Amazing!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

We went to the Jumble Rooms on a recommendation from some friends. We were visiting whilst on honeymoon and had a delightful meal. The cocktails were pricey but tasty and the food didn't disappoint. Service was polite and friendly - we will definitely be coming again!

“Another Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Each time we visit Grasmere we try to visit the Jumble Room. We have learnt over the years that it pays to book well in advance if you want a particular day and time.
Our latest visit didn't disappoint, food, wine and service up to the usual high standard.
