Me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our three course meal here. Especially the Lobster Ravioli special and cheese and biscuits. Also not overpriced. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Bowness on Windermere

I don't really think it would be appropriate to take a dog in any restaurant. Pubs maybe but not restaurants.
