“Unpretentious quality”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I can highly recommend this intimate restaurant that punches well above its weight. The manager/ maitre d' was extremely attentive without being overbearing. Our meals were perfect and service was prompt and yet we never felt rushed.

The food was delicious, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked.

Try the chef's speciality olives (also available to take away in jars) they are absolutely fantastic. The recipe is so secret even the manager does not know it.

“excellent meal”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Have visited a couple of times with family. Can't fault the meal or portion sizes. All nicely prepared and presented. The nibbles before the meal is also a nice touch. Service also very friendly. Excellent value for money

“Lovely meal”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Just a quick note on a lovely Sunday night meal. Called in at 7:00 PM and booked for 2 at 8:30. Arrived and was shown straight to the table, it was not full but the atmosphere was just right, service was great and the food was delightful, the Salted Beef was probably the best starter I have ever had.
Will return on our next visit to bowness

“Beautiful meal”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Only a small restaurant but what a find! The food was beautifully cooked and tasted delicious. The staff were friendly and the service excellent. The belly pork was divine and the chips were to die for. The creme brulee was a light end to an amazing meal. Will definitely visit again when we are in the area.
