Beautifully situated with fabulous views over Windermere, we went here for my wife's birthday. The food was outstanding, the service excellence and the ambience lovely. One thing that struck us was the enthusiasm and loyalty of the staff and the excitement for the forthcoming re-development....More

Really enjoyed our afternoon tea here. Good selection of sandwiches and the cake tier was really yummy! Would be five stars except that the little bakewell tart type cakes had been slightly over cooked and a couple of the scones were savoury which I thought...More

A very special place with old world comforts, impeccable service and the type of pampering I've never enjoyed at hotels three times the price. The food is another story (and a better one!). It is simply outstanding across the board. The chef, his kitchen staff...More

Very pleasant and romantic setting for our Valentines night - wonderful ambiance and a reasonably priced bottle of Merlot for those of us on a budget though could spend £ 250 + on a bottle of champers !!

I can honestly say that this meal is one of the best gastro experiences I've had. Every course was delicious and the presentation and service was fantastic.

We visited for Sunday lunch. Extremely comfortable place, great views over Windermere. The food was nice, quite fussy, tasty and as we expected well presented. Nice staff, made us very welcome.

Linthwaite House Hotel restaurant overlooking Lake Windermere in the sublime Lake District is a very special place indeed. With views that would have thrilled Wordsworth, Linthwaite House Hotel has chosen luxurious, tasteful interiors to please even the most jaded urbanite and the kitchen, under chef Simon Bolsover, is daring and modern too. Fresh, local ingredients conspire in a signature dish like 60 Degree Herdwick Lamb with braised neck kataifi, cep and kidney risotto. Choose from light lunch menu on the terrace, daily changing table d’hote menu or simpler a la carte in the elegant dining room, with its vast mirror collection, in the evenings, vegetarian menu, or trad Sunday lunch, all accompanied by a blistering global wine list.
