Great find on our way to Lake Windermere , nice quirky little cafe, friendly staff and lovely decor. The breakfast was premium I guess but wow was it worth it, no expense spared for anything and I’m not a big lover of them normally. Must try !

Visiting Bowness the Magic Rounabout stood out when we were walking through the village, we knew we'd be back for dinner! Being gin lovers it was a no brainer to eat here, there is a fantastic gin menu, possibly one of the best we've ever seen! The food was great we had the rump steak and the beef brisket.. cannot fault the food, perfect!!

Visited here for lunch during our visit to Bowness-on-Windermere. The inside of the restaurant/cafe bar was very cosy and welcoming, however the door was propped open by menus, which meant you could hear the traffic from the very busy road outside and caused a draught. The atmosphere could have been better with the door being closed and the waiting staff not standing in the middle of the room waiting for other customers to come in.

Didn't sample any alcohol so can't comment on that but markets itself as a bar as well as a cafe/restaurant.

For starters we had the Wild Mushroom Bruschetta which was divine as well as a very generous portion, more than you would expect from a starter menu. We also had 'chicken in a basket' which was adequate however small for a starter. The chicken itself was clearly frozen and something you would expect from a supermarket, you would expect better from a restaurant, however the honey and mustard dip was nice.

For mains we had steak and ale pie served with mash and seasonal veg, which was delightful. A good portion size. We also had the oak smoked bbq hot dog, which was nice however a little dry in our opinion. The sweet potato fries that came with the dish however were some of the best we have tried.

Overall, this was a good place to come for lunch at a reasonable price, and would recommend visiting. Probably not suitable for large groups of people or families however perfect for couples and small groups/parties.

We had two very good breakfasts at this restaurant. The service was very good. The only reason for not having lunch or dinner was due to not realising there are tables upstairs also, and I felt the place was too busy for my liking downstairs. Now I’m aware of the upstairs I shall certainly have an evening meal when I’m again in Bowness.
