“Brilliant dining experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

The food quality was brilliant - best lamb dish I've ever had and fantastic dauphinoise potatoes accompanying it. We had a travelzoo deal which included the meal so thought we might get a separate limited choice menu but it was the same as the normal menu which was really good. We enjoyed the service and the fantastic views - we were lucky enough to be right by the window. The reception area of the hotel is a little jaded so we didn't know what to expect of the restaurant but we really liked its traditional style and charm, especially the mirrored wood panelling. We also liked that the wine came in an ice bucket.

“Amazing restaurant attached to the hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Lots of choice at breakfast. Dinner was very nice on each of the 3 evenings we were there. There is plenty of choice and the prices are quite reasonable.

“Great place excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Great food, good price. We ordered rump of lamb and they didn't have it so he went out the way and offered a lamb shoulder which was cooked beautifully with a lovely view next to the window. We wasn't a resident and we felt welcome. only downfall it says its a lakeside view an you can just see the lake.

“Prententious, poorly run restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

The Paisley restaurant is attached to the Craig Manor Hotel in Bowmess and unless you are a resident you are made to feel like a second class citizen. The Headwaiter is arrogant and table seating is done for convenience of the waiter rather than the client - We sat with the setting sun in our eyes with closely clustered with other diners while the remainder of the restaurant was essentially empty. All this would have been fine if the food had been up to scratch. It was not and had I not pointedly reminded our waiter that we would like our wine before we had finished eating I am not sure when we would have got it. When it did arrive he literally plonked the bottle down on the table and walked off. He did not even attempt to pour or check that he had the correct bottle
A definite pass!

“Outstanding Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Outstanding food, excellent service and nice views over the Lake District scenery. I was part of a large party and all meals came out quickly. Staff friendly - nothing is too much trouble.
