“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Had afternoon tea in the sunshine as part of my 40th birthday celebration. The cakes were absolutely scrummy and only managed to get through about half of them, however they did vacuum pack the leftovers for us. A bargain at £25 for two people!

“The One and Only”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

If you eat only once in the Lake District eat here, as the food and the service are superb with a perfectly balanced meal across the 3 or 4 courses .

We enjoyed our dinner very much. it was difficult to choose our entree since all of the entrees sounded delicious! We love the location in the heart of Grasmere, we loved the service and ambiance. Nice job!

“Still hungry”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Chose to stay at this hotel based on the restaurant - hotel is fab but the restaurant not so fab. Some nice touches in the way you are greeted and the little 'extras'. We were given a different wine than what we'd ordered earlier but we didn't notice till it was to late so just drank it rather than sending it back. My starter of pork cheeks with black pudding was really good and I could have eaten a massive plateful of it. While eating my starter a man next us was served overdone lamb, he sent it back and by the time a replacement arrived his wife had finished her meal, plate gone and the waiting staff asking if she wasn't eating! I think this is really bad etiquette given the price tag. My own dinner of loin of venison was underwhelming, two mean slices one cooked right the other very overdone, I didn't send it back based what happened at the next table. I mentioned it but it fell on deaf ears. Other than the little bit of meat there was a tonne of mashed potato, nice and overall everything tasted good and went well together, so perhaps a off day.
Breakfast was tragic, staff seemed all over the place and they couldn't get a simple order of toast with bacon right, I had to ask for the toast a few times, then all I got was one slice (hubby got the other slice). He told me that it's the first time ever that eggs had no taste. Still to have breakfast tomorrow and avoided the bistro next door just in case. All in all very overpriced for the potions and quality, now pass me some crisps, I'm still hungry.
