We came here a year or two ago, and didn't feel the need to come back, but it's reopened after the flooding and the reviews were good, so thought we would come again. The food was very slow to arrive, even the olives! When the mains did arrive eventually it wasn't hot. My Lakeland beef was very nice and tasty... More

Once again, superb meal. My partner's 80th Birthday on 13th May. Food excellent, as always. Thanks to George, Meera and all their staff for a very happy evening. We are always well looked after and we cannot fault the food. Donald was made to feel very special and we look forward to another evening very soon. Very highly recommended.

Nice restaurant with high standards and great food. Good prompt polite and friendly service. Just a shame they don't do the Cumberland pizza anymore as it was my favourite.

Locally recommended restaurant. Tried the chef's special kerala lamb. Expecting great spicy flavours. Anything but spice. Pigeon starter was pink but still managed to be tough. Staff were friendly and helpful. Maybe we are spoilt by eating in high end city restaurants , but this flattered to deceive with , as they say in Masterchef, things that do not belong... More

We were recommended to dine here and it certainly richly deserved the praise given with the recommendation. We had a very enjoyable evening meal. They do a midweek special, 2 courses for £19. We chose the lamb shank, it was cooked to perfection and attractively served with fresh, seasonal vegetables. The asparagus was very tasty indeed. The service was good,... More

Really enjoyable dinner, in a nice atmosphere. Food was extremely fresh, flavoursome and perfectly seasoned. I would highly recommend when in the northern lakes.

This restaurant is about the food. The service and ambience are perfectly acceptable but the food is quite outstanding. It is also very reasonably priced. I recommend the lamb Kerala which is remarkable. The beef tasting plate is also top notch. This place deserves to be very successful. Please don't hesitate to visit.
