“Perfect”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

The service was attentive yet unobtrusive, efficient yet genuine and warm. The food, catering for vegetarians and omnivores alike, was stylishly presented, cooked to perfection, and left you feeling easily satisfied. At £32.50 p/p for 5 courses this restaurant is simply a must if in the vicinity of Windermere. The location is great if wanting to stay and explore the surrounding area, so why not stay a few nights at the attached B&B?
Like 'pinkpurplejohn' previous, this restaurant really does deserve more credit.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

I haven't visited The Hideaway for a while now but feel compelled to leave a review.

We visited about this time last year and it was wonderful, looking at the more recent reviews it would appear that the quality hasn't slipped at all.

When we arrived we were seated in a very homely lounge and offered cocktails - both of which were lovely. As we were dining for a special occassion I had called ahead an ordered the wine to be on the table. At the reccomendation of the staff I opted for the red (I can't recall the name but it was about £30 and was lovely), the had opened the bottle allowing it to breathe ready for us being seated, adhereing to my request for a quite table they has seated us in the window which was lovely.

The food was amazing, each dish was perfectly balanced and presented very well. We paid £35 a head for food and with wine and cocktails the total bill for the evening was aroun £130. It was worth every penny and I would highly advise anybody looking for a top class meal in Windermere to eat here. Remember to book in advance though as they are rightfully booked up a little way in advance
