We have visited Beresfords before and we're pleased to find that high standards have been maintained. A pleasant atmosphere, good service and lovely food from a fairly extensive menu. Especially of note was the special Mexican beef. During our weeks holiday we visited twice.

Great little find last time we came to Windermere hence this visit. Early bird menu is great and a great choice for all. The owners/staff are lovely so friendly and helpful and we're great with our young son even though they were very busy. Slightly out of bowness main area but worth the little walk up the hill and is... More

Staff friendly and efficient despite busy sitting. Food slightly disappointing. Selection from set menu could have been better

This is a nice place. We had the early evening 2 course special which is great value. All good was hot & fresh. Portions not very big though. Drinks are also reasonably priced.

This is much nicer than it looks from the outside. We went for the early bird menu which was perfectly cooked, with a sticky toffee pudding to die for, and it was so good we went back again the second night of our stay, and weren't disappointed. The service was excellent, we sat in the window so could do as... More

We came here for a meal on a friday night. The food was lovely, however the staff could not get on and it created a bit of an atmosphere. I dont want to hear people arguing (staff especially) when I am out for a meal. However do not let this put you off because the service was still good and... More

This is a nice restaurant with well spaced out tables. From the outside it can look like a pub but don't be deceived. Inside it is very tasteful we ate here twice. The first time my husband and I had the garlic prawns for a starter with a warm gluten free roll. Then my husband had the chciken in mushroom... More

Excellent pleasant man and lady went for £10 2 course meal - soup was nice but the actual main course size was disappointing 2 meat, 3 roast and Yorkshire but a small amount of other (broccoli, red cabbage and carrots between the 2 of us and nothing else) certainly not worth £10. The actual taste was nice though and the... More

I came to this restaurant with my wife as we were on a short break, although the restaurant looked of a good quality the food and service was diabolical. My wife ordered the steak and mushroom pie, what arrived was a dish of warmed meat and mushroom from a can covered with a puff pastry sheet around £2 in cost,... More

Apprehension took hold of me when I first witnessed the building at first glance, delivering a feeling of such a location for, well, let’s say a rowdy evening of entertainment. This of course then created concerns to what food would be presented following our ordering……. How wrong was I; never judge a book by its cover?? I ask you not... More
