Booked into this very popular and busy eatery for dinner meal. The service was first class as were the steaks served on piping hot lava stones so you finish cooking them to your taste.The wine list nicely compliments the Menu. There is a good choice for all tastes, but I must personally reccomend the Ribeye Steak, one of the best... More

To be honest I came away from this restaurant with words for a mixed review. The place was warm and welcoming on an icy November night. The front of house staff were friendly and the menu was simple, plenty of steaks fish and a few vegetarian options for myself. I think our expectations were higher than they should have been...

We were staying near to the log house so when we walked past one morning we rang them and left a message booking a table for that night and as the menu was outside we also left our order (i.e. 2 slow cooked brisket dinner's ) We duly turned up as the first customer's of the evening and when the...

My wife and I stayed at The Log House on the Saturday of Ambleside's annual Xmas Lights switching-on event and firework display. It appears that The Log House, which was once a bar and grill, now has a number of bedrooms upstairs in addition. The inside is well decorated downstairs in the bar and grill area and upstairs where the... More

Had a trip to ambleside for a couple of days and when walking from our hotel into the centre we past the Log House several times and thought we would give it a whirl. The restaurant looks lovely from outside and is just a good inside. The decor and cleanliness is excellent and staff were welcoming,helpful and very pleasant. The... More

This was our last night of a 2 month holiday and were thinking of a great Aussie steak. To our surprise the steaks both eye fillet and rump were perfectly presented on the hot stone to cook ourselves. Just melted in the mouth. Just wonderful.

We stayed at the log house for one night so that we could make an early start at a walk in the morning. The room was nice, huge double bed. Parking was very easy as you can get a free parking badge from the log house for the public car park across the road. Breakfast was also good. Only slight... More

It would appear that half of the evening menu is now taken up with dishes where the customer cooks his/her meal on a 200 degree lava stone - why pay restaurant prices when you have to cook it yourself? My wife and I opted for the Brisket from the "normal" evening menu, which was gristly, dry and tough and the... More

A group of 6 of us stopped in here after visiting the garden centre with all the Christmas decorations having just been displayed. We only wanted a quick drink so were told we could sit downstairs. This area was lovely - enough space for another group of people but we had it to ourselves - there was a TV too.... More
