My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to grab a bit of food during a trip to Bowness and decided on #4. We were not disappointed. The place looks fresh, clean and very welcoming. The food was fantastic, very tasty and well made. The staff were very friendly and the feel of the place was relaxing, with nice music. We felt relaxed and well fed. Highly recommended.

My partner and I visited #4 earlier this week after looking around a few shops. The staff were attentive and friendly when we placed our order and the menu was varied whilst also not being too overbearing.

Our meals arrived within good time and were clearly freshly prepared. The portion sizes were excellent - my partner always has a club sandwich if there is one on the menu and he said this was one of the best he had ever had - trust me this is great praise! He also had a piece of the chocolate fudge cake which looked delicious (but I was already stuffed from the main!) which was kindly saved behind the counter earlier on.

A young boy - looked approx 16 - was a credit to #4 - polite and friendly - I hope they realise how lucky they are to have him!

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who visits Windermere for some quality food at a reasonable price in a relaxed setting.

After a disastrous stay in a foul B&B near by, we wandered into town looking for somewhere for breakfast. #4 was just opening but the owner couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming!! The breakfast menu had something for everyone and the 'breakfast stack' totally hit the spot and was delish!!! The owner chatted but was not obtrusive!!! I would highly recommend a visit here!

On Thursday the 28th of March, me and a couple of friends went out for breakfast, we decided to go into #4, the food was amazing and the staff were brilliant! The atmosphere was perfect with calming music and a nice, warm feel to the place. It really was the best food I've had and would recommend it to anyone!
