“Superb restaurant”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

We visited the restaurant as it come highly recommended locally and we wanted to go out for a nice meal whilst staying in the lakes. It is located in the centre of a beautiful village and the food was excellent. I had the steak which i can honestly say was probably the best steak i have ever had. The service was warm and friendly and the selection of wine was extensive. I would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant and will be visiting again for sure.

“Good value bistro menu”
Reviewed 25 June 2011

Excellent value Bistro menu , generous portions , good choices .
The ambience is very nice and interesting .
Main problem was very slow service , but person who took booking had hinted at short staffing .
Family run , and in the middle of a beautiful village .5 star apart from service which on a normal night would be friendly and knowledgeable

“Pretty well perfect - a real treat”
Reviewed 18 June 2011

Visiting the area for the first time, we were only able to go to Beswicks once in our brief stay. What a shame! It is increasingly difficult to find a place like this. The restaurant is situated in quite an old building and appears small at first glance, but when you go in all you can see is a lounge bar, comfortably and cosily furnished, where you can study the menu and order your food and your drinks. The restaurant tables are downstairs in a cellar level - this is so attractively furnished that although it has no daylight it certainly isn't oppressive; in fact it is cosy and comfortable, with a proper fireplace (welcome and used, when we were there).

We had only a two-course meal (different main dishes, but both involving beef; and different desserts). All was of high quality, beautifully cooked, presented and served, and portions were generous. This was a Saturday evening -- surely the busiest night of the week -- and the restaurant seemed more or less fully booked, yet the service was attentive, pleasantly carried out yet businesslike. I think several of the customer parties were repeat bookings and quite possibly discerning local people.

You can look at the menu online -- if you like it and you are in the area, do go there. We wish we could have returned.
