My wife opted for Baklava and this was very well cooked... More

Visited at February half term when the in-laws were visiting. A warm welcome at the door, coats taken and drinks in the bar to start. Shown to our tables by the polite waiter, carrying our drinks through on the tray. We had mains and desserts, all were really good and from the mid-week 'value' menu. All in all a thoroughly...

We went to this restaurant this evening and found it to be very slow throughout the dinner. The waiting staff seemed nice but they were disorganised and hence the tables around us experienced problems with their meals. As these covers were sent back it placed pressure on the kitchen which in turn made service even slower. The food was ok,... More

Exceptional food and service from the staff. The chefs speciality dish, Kerala Spiced Lamb, is a must! Will definitely be returning.

My first visit in Honest Lawyer's and definitely not the last. I had amazing fish and my partner had delicious lamb followed by fantastic sticky toffee pudding. I truly recommend this restaurant. Great hosts and a lovely atmosphere .

We found this restaurant by chance on Good Friday and didn't have a reservation but were still made welcome. We shall confidently recommend The Honest Lawyer to fellow vegans out there! There were several options to choose from on the lunch menu, the staff were lovely and so was the food. Thank you we enjoyed our visit.

We spent last week having a break, staying in our favourite part of the Lakes, and decided to eat out most nights. We had some delicious meals, but for me,the stand-out meal was the one we enjoyed at the Honest Lawyer. I had the Chicken Supreme, and my partner had lamb, and we both agreed our evening was the highlight... More

Went last night to this wonderful restaurant after having seen its great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed - it more than lived up to expectations! We were warmly greeted by Seth on arrival and the order taken in the bar. The menu has just been updated and there are a few additional items and choices. The midweek... More
