Lovely breakfast but it was on the pricey side. Good location, central to Windermere and it had an extensive menu. Not overly special on the inside and there are nicer places to have breakfast.

Hi. Consensus seems to be they do not take bookings but inside space in restaurant is relatively small so I suggest you phone first to avoid disappointment - 01539 446228.
