“Poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

Service wasn't great and the food was very poor. Came very quickly, so was not fresh and very very basic food. No thought or care into it. The jacket potato was hard and salmon baguette was tasteless.

“Excellent food, good service, nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Despite it being a busy night, the service was still excellent.
Starters arrived in less than 5 minutes, and the mains only minutes later - a little too quick if anything. I do wonder how they got the food out so quickly. However they're doing it though, the food is still excellent, and at a reasonable cost.
Would recommend.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Was in the Lakes in the off season and this place seemed to be one of the few in Windermere open on a Monday night, or with people actually in it. Only had mains, but both were very good and filling. I had a burger, which was of the home made ground meat variety, so had a great steak-like flavour. Had the chilli and jalapeno side, which went well with it. My wife had the pork & mash, which she also really enjoyed. Good food, pleasant enough atmosphere, friendly staff. Did the job for us.
