Went there for a Sunday lunch. The food was OK and I enjoyed the meal. However, the service left much to be desired. Waiting staff were not attentive and forgot part of our order. After serving they never checked once to see if we were...More

We came here because of the downpour in the Lake District yesterday which ended our stroll. The cinema is amazing, it’s so warm and comfortable and the screen (upstairs) was small but pleasantly so. The only negative I could find was that the staff were...More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a devoted carnivore which was a surprise as all the meals are vegetarian. As vegetarians, my husband and I are used to being offered limited choices in restaurants/ pubs which usually take the form of “veggie lasagne” or...More
