What a great find. Excellent food and service. We were well looked after & enjoyed every minute. An earlybird menu is available before 6.30pm. We will definitely be visiting here again. Thanks for a great evening.

We had a really nice meal here and will definitely be returning! I had the crab to start and it was a lovely dish. The ribs for the main course were very generous and proper meat. The staff were assertive and really professional and were happy help. I would recommend and in the winter ask to sit downstairs where theres... More

The restaurant is located in the central of Bowness Town. I like the lovely atmosphere and there is a fireplace in the downstairs. Luckily, we have been served without reservation in advance. We have arrived there at 5:30pm. We definitely recommend the pork ribs . It is tender and juicy. The duck salad is a great starter to begin with.

Enjoyed a really nice meal at a sensible price last night at Jacksons Bistro - nice and warm inside on a chilly night in the Lakes. The ambiance was really pleasant and the staff made us feel very welcome. There was a great choice on the Menu and to be honest the set Menu for £20 was ideal and the... More

I managed to book a last minute table here and so pleased I did. The restaurant layout is intimate, the staff are really friendly and the food and wine really wonderful. However, I was a little disappointed with the scallops that were cooked in mustard and teamed up with black pudding, but the scallops were cooked perfectly. I ordered a... More

We visited yesterday for a family meal whilst on holiday. We couldn't fault the food or the service, nothing was too much trouble. I had the Garlic Mushrooms and Rump Steak which were cooked to perfection. Some of the family had Pate and Chicken club burgers and the cod which were amazing. My husband had the ribs starter which he... More
