This restaurant is worth coming back for. The food is wonderful (we stayed overnight and breakfast was just as good as dinner). Have never had a smoked steak before, but certainly would have one here again. Not very often that you get a steak done as you ask for either. 10/10 for the chefs. OK, it is not cheap, compared...

Family of 4 visit. We visited here as a birthday meal treat. Food is all fresh and home cooked to a high standard, flavours are lovely and attention to detail is good. Staff are friendly, atmosphere is welcoming, its bright and clean. We would definitely visit here again.

Excellent food, reasonably priced. Very good service. I ordered the pigeon to start, never had this before, tasty! My main was the Wild Boar and Apple Sausages - to die for!

The whole experience was very good, but as foodies, we were expecting exceptional. Would definately go back to give it another go though. The breakfast was great.

The virtue if the Wild Boar is the combination of excellent service with a lack of formality; after the overload of the Christmas break, our last meal there was a superbly cooked pan fried hake.

Our party of 5 booked this restaurant for Saturday lunch, having previously been impressed by the location and the menu. We arrived with hopes and expectations of a relaxed enjoyable lunch, but left with feelings of disappointment, dissatisfaction and having been conned. We made our choices from the regular menu, but only after thinking that many of the dishes seemed... More

Myself and 2 friends visited The Wild Boar for afternoon tea this week. We had been recommended the place by another friend so we're looking forward to trying their version of an afternoon tea. Upon arrival we saw other tables with the afternoon tea, which looked delicious. However, there was a salmon sandwich on the menu which none of us... More

If you only eat one meal out in Windermere , it has to be the Wild Boar grill & smokehouse. From the moment you walk through the door the ambiance envelopes you. The service, the food, the wines and the friendly atmosphere all join together to make your visit a unique experience.

Rather odd that this is listed separately as it is the restaurant area of The Wild Boar hotel. The steaks served here are wonderful.
