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.

Food was truly abysmal. 2 roast beef dinners barely touched, lamb shank returned as inedible and the orange marinated chicken was tasteless. Chips, mushroom and tomatoes replaced as all cold. £79 after a discount of £19 for the lamb shank. Left hungry and a resolve not to return.

Brilliant service and food. Staff were very welcoming. Gorgeous room (10) slightly chilly in the bathroom, radiator not big enough for size of room, but perfect in the summer when we first visited. Food was excellent again. Would highly recommend a visit

My husband chose to have a meal here for his birthday and the dinner,bed and breakfast Sunday evening deal was too good to resist. We were made most welcome, the staff had time to have a chat and answer our questions and the food was excellent. A pre dinner gin and tonic by a welcoming log fire was a lovely... More

We were totally let down by another hotel nearby. We had driven over 5 hours to get here so were really tired (not to mention angry and disappointed about issues at the other hotel). We called the Wild Boar at 9pm - to see if they had a room available that night. They did and were so sweet to us... More
