As soon as we arrived in the lakes from London, before checking into our hotel even, we came here for dinner. After a six hour drive in bad weather we were not in the most amazing spirits, but this changed as soon as we arrived at the hideaway. The greeting was exceptional, friendly and warm. The food was unbelievably good and certainly the best we had in the whole time we were in the Lake District, and the bill was so reasonable I felt I had robbed them. The thing that really stood out for us though was the fact that the service really was outstanding. I rate this as one of the best restaurants I have been to anywhere, and can't recommend it enough to others.

We booked this hotel to celebrate our anniversary which falls on New Years Day, based on the reviews we'd read on TripAdvisor, and we weren't disappointed. Every aspect of this restaurant was first class... We were met at the door and shown through to a comfy lounge to have a drink and browse over the beautiful menu. Once we'd finally managed to narrow down the options, we were taken through to our table which had been pre-prepared with the appropriate cutlery, glasses and wine that we'd ordered.

The food was absolutely incredible, especially for the very reasonable price. The menu had clearly been put together with a lot of thought. Whilst there were only a handful of options, each of them were delicious and it was still difficult to choose. In the end we decided to go with the duck and lamb for our mains, and we weren't disappointed. Both meats were cooked to perfect, and the accompaniments were delicious.

The service was also really great - every need was taken care of and nothing seemed too much hassle.

We'll definitely be returning on our next visit to The Lake District. Thank you!

We had pre booked to have a special meal at the hideaway, after seeing the great reviews. Which proved good planning as they were fully booked for the whole weekend, we later found out. We enjoyed a little tipple on the very relaxing lounge area whilst looking through the menu, was difficult to choose as everything looked good. The service was very good - attentive but not intrusive. We both had the salmon starter, which was delicious but not too heavy. Followed by the bass and lamb mains. The lamb was like nothing I've ever tasted before, so tender almost like fillet steak. Gorgeous. Unfortunately I had been quite poorly that day and we ended up leaving a bit earlier than planned. The staff could not have been more accommodating and sympathetic. Sorting the bill quickly and arranging a taxi. Such a shame to have to leave. We would definitely go back. Thanks again.

Ate here on a Friday night.
We were welcomed to the comfy lounge for a pre dinner drink whilst perusing the menu.
The food and service were excellent and mostly enjoyable experience.
The only thing I found a little disappointing was the atmosphere.
Nearly all the other tables were taken with couples enjoying a nice quiet meal - but even though the restaurant was almost full I felt a little uncomfortable in that you could hear the other couples conversations and this of course meant they in turn could hear yours!
That said, it is great that the area has more of a "fine dining" restaurant and based on the excellent food and service I would return again
