Staying at the Rothay Garden we decided to eat out for the first evening. After walking around Grasmere we chose this restaurant and were delighted to get a table without reservation. The service and food were first class. Highly recommended

Really nice, pleasant atmosphere. We both had different starters, mains and desserts and all were spot on, the local beer on offer was very nice too. Really friendly staff. Reasonably priced. No complaints, would be more than happy to return.

We used to eat at Sara's whenever we visited Grasmere and so we're very interested to try out the new owners at the newly named Lewis's. It did not disappoint - friendly service, well cooked food and a cheerful atmosphere all added up to a very enjoyable evening.

Visited during Easter '17. This is an excellent restaurant which is extremely friendly and serves great tasting food. Most of the ingredients are locally sourced from fells and Morecambe bay.

Pleasant venue ,unfortunately the herb crusted rack of lamb was tough,the complaint was met with suprise and apology. But I was made to feel I was the one in the wrong. Disappointed by the food and experience.

Pleasant atmosphere, delicious food. We went with our two children but we think it is more suitable for adults. Staff were new and being trained and this was clear....

We visited Lewis's last month and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and efficient. The meal was fantastic and there was plenty to choose from. The prices are very reasonable for the lakes and we will be back very soon! Thank you for... More

Booked a table for 8:30. When we arrived we were quickly shown to our table even though the bistro was packed. Both had three courses which came out in good time. (Not too quick, not too slow) we both had the filler steak for mains which I can quite honestly say was the best steak dish I have ever had.... More

Was expecting great things after reading all the positive reviews on tripadvisor but was left disappointed by the quality of the food,had the lamb and I found it rather chewy and tasteless,meal was generally bland also a bit pricy.
