“Great steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

I had a medium rare rump steak here. It was perfectly cooked and was extremely juicy. The service was great too. The beer here is great with a number of cask ales on the go.

“You will not eat better for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

Had read the good reviews of this place, and decided to try it when we arrived on friday at windermere..We were shown to our table and offered complimentary bread (superb) whilst the waiter described everything on the admittedly limited menu..Ive never ordered belly pork before , but was talked into it....glad i was...superb..Also had a dessert (even though full from 1st 2 courses) of poppy seed cheesecake.,this too was as good as ive ever had. I STRONGLY recommend anybody eating out in windermere to try this place, especially the earlybird offer of 2 courses for under £13..The choice of dishes may be small, but its probably because of that ,that the quality is so good. Wish all restaurants were this good at this price !!

“quality food at affordable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

My family and I were treated to an elegant window table with excellent views. A live piano player added to the whole experience and the food was beautifully home made and hearty. Coupled with friendly service and more than reasonable prices it is hard to say anything negative about this new steak house.

“Best meal of the week”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

We didn't stay at the hotel but went to the recently opened steak house for a meal. We had just walked the Dales Way and we could honestly say this was the best meal of the whole week. The service and care by staff was excellent and the food was perfect. I am pretty hard to please but the homemade bread was superb, the starters for us all delicious and the main courses too were hard to beat. We would have loved to have had a desert too but were too full. Many thanks for making our last night of walking so memorable.

“Amazing food, incredible service, stunning value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

Have you ever found a business that delivers such a great product that you know you will always be a customer? This is what we found at the 'Grey Walls'

The description on the menu states "Good quality local produce, cooked well at a reasonable price" This statement is the clearest case of under promising and over delivering I have ever come across in a business. Especially the food industry!

First of all the welcome from Tim is top notch, his manner and style really makes you feel special and his knowledge of the menu and how the food is prepared and cooked help build a picture in your mind that leaves your mouth watering in anticipation of what's to come.
When the food arrives it is everything Tim promised it would be, the chef is obviously very very talented and clearly enjoys his work!

The food we had was simply some of the best we have ever eaten! It was of a quality that is to be expected from a restaurant charging 3 or 4 times what we paid.

Reading this you may think I am being overly complimentary but the first class service and food delivered by the team at the 'Grey Wall' should be experienced by anyone who thinks old school customer service and value is a thing of the past.

We wish the team the very best of luck for the future and we will see you soon when we come back with the family.

Thanks for the experience.

Mark & Sue
