I live in Cockermouth, & of all the Restaurants here, The Front Room is my personal favourite.
The food is tasty & not fancy at all. OK, its not top quality Restaurant standard, but its not pretending to be & the prices reflect this. After all, this is Cockermouth in Cumbria, not a big City full of Michelin Stared Restaurants.
I'd say its definitely good value for money, & the service is good & very friendly with character.
If you're pretentious in any way, don't bother trying The Front Room, but if you want a friendly, enjoyable evening with good value food, give it a go :-)
Oh, & if the Dublin Bay Prawns are on as a special, order them quickly.
Open Thursday to Sunday for dinner only.
