We had a great evening meal in the Bistro, we hadn't booked but they managed to squeeze us in. The service was excellent, with attentive staff and the food was really tasty. I had the salmon salad with very generous portion of salmon and prawns.

Bit of a treat after a long day on the fells. Old school atmosphere and surroundings. Apparently the chef has recently changed but the food was as good as our last visit. Really enjoyable evening

Description
The Pheasant at Bassenthwaite's fine dining restaurant is renowned for excellent food that exceeds expectations, and we were recently awarded 2 AA Rosettes in recognition of the precision in cooking and quality of ingredients. We are proud to be the only restaurant in the Cockermouth area with 2 rosettes. We invite you to visit, taste the best that Lakeland has to offer and enjoy a memorable fine dining meal in a beautiful, relaxed setting. The Fell Restaurant is open in the evenings Wednesday to Saturday (from 6pm till 9pm) and for traditional Sunday lunch (Sunday from 12pm til 2pm). The menu changes regularly
