Met up with some old friends for lunch. We had drinks first in the comfortable bar area with superb views over Derwentwater. The lunch itself was excellent. The slow cooked Cumbrian lamb was delicious. The waiting staff were attentive and polite. A very enjoyable experience all round. In fact in my humble opinion; world-class!

How can a hotel get soup and tea wrong? Answer serve the soup cold; serve the tea with out milk then wait ages for them to fix it...... Oh and then charge customers £17 for their displeasure! Oh dear must do better - posh loos though - what is it they say about fur coat no ...........

We are regulars at Lodore and we were lucky enough to get married there last weekend. We can honestly say it was absolutely perfect from start to end.

We had a delicious three course dinner which was all very tasty and I was delighted to see a plate of mixed vegetables each as so many places serve two bits of asparagus and a stick of carrot and I prefer the veg to meat. Sticky toffee pudding was the perfect dessert and coffee in the bar just finished the... More
