this place was recommended by the guest house and they were spot on the. The food and service was excellent. It is well positioned in the village being close to all the pubs and our guesthouse. We will return when we come back in September.

We have eaten at Jackson's Bistro on at least three occasions and have not once been disappointed. The menu can be of unusual cuisine but thoroughly worth while tasting, they seem to have more fish dishes on their menu than meat or vegetable options but on saying that the choices they have should not disappoint, they have a set menu on offer as well as the main menu and plenty of options in drinks. When we ate there we opted for the set menu and tried for our starters the seafood medley the mains we had Chicken bolonaise with a difference definitely worth a taste and desert my partner tried the sticky toffee pudding with fresh cream and I the tiramisu truly delicious from start to finish and worth every penny spent, please note that the last time we ate at Jackson's was back in August 2013 so it is more than likely possible that the menu has been changed in part, but all in all is still worth a visit. Recommended to all we will certainly will eat there again on our next visit to the Lakes (Bowness on Windermere). From Friday to Sunday recommend booking.

We went on Friday evening 8.30pm. 6 people dined. Food was over an hour before it arrived. One waiter was over chirpy and told us about 'our ratings for steaks on Tripadvisor' 3 or 4 times which was becoming irrating. Starters were average and slightly small. Main course the fillet steaks and rump steaks were some of the smallest I've seen. They got nearly all the meat cooking wrong. Mostly 'Well Done' when asked for 'Rare'. When we complained they re-cooked. After a poor meal we complained and they only knocked of a couple of sauces.

Up your game. We won't be returning.

Visited with friends on Saturday night and it was lovely. Have been before and we were not disappointed. We all really enjoyed our meals and it was great value too. Nice atmosphere will go back for sure.
