We called in here early on a Sunday evening on the off chance of a table and were greeted very warmly. Nothing was too much trouble. My husband wanted a main dish that was actually a fish starter on their specials board so they obliged with a double portion and selection of veg. The food was delicious, the wine choice was very good and the service was attentive without being too pushy. All in all we couldn't fault it and we were only sorry we were in the area for one night as we would definitely have eaten there again

We dined at Jackson's on 1st April . The bistro had been reccommended to us by our hotel. The service was first class , the food was excellent and the bistro was very comfortable and clean. The staff were really polite and attentive. I would definitely recommend Jackson's for a meal.

We walked in before 6pm for early dinner, they took us down to the table in the basement which was pretty cozy and comfortable.
We ordered chicken salad and sea bass, both were awesome tastes with a fantastic presentation on the dish. Waiters were friendly and hard worker, very efficient and fast serve, looks like they enjoyed working there (which is a good sign of good restaurant).
Next time, we will try other dishes and probably wine :-)

Last minute rush to find somewhere too eat on good Friday evening, we didn't book but we should have done. Came across Jackson's bistro. Lovely food and friendly staff. Will definitely be returning. I had the salmon with prawns in a tomato sauce

My wife and I eat here every time we visit Bowness on Windermere and it is always excellent.

This is the first time we have dined here when the owner hasn’t been in (in 22 years). We had the seafood mornay and the chicken liver pate which was excellent, followed by pork fillet medallions and the chicken supreme.

Amazing food and we were even able to thank the chef.

If you are visiting the area, Jacksons is a must visit place.

One thing we missed was the owner asking “have you got space for pud”?, so we ordered the rhubarb crumble to make up for it.
