We were lucky to get in here after a cancellation because it's defo the place to eat if you want something special in Coniston. By the way, did I mention you need to bring your own alcohol? Well you do. Having arrived ahead of time we were shown to our table, cozy in the corner with cool lighting, but told it'd take a few minutes to get the menu. Ok we thought, but then the menus came and after another 5 minutes we were ready to order... but were told we had to wait another couple of minutes. In fairness there was a table of eight and a table of five ahead of us, so maybe that was why. When it did connect, however, we were served a couple of fab starters (see pics) and that started the meal! My wife really loved her chicken dish and for me the sausages n mash were the best! Follow that up with a fabulous Eton Mess and you've got yourself a fabulous meal! Highly recommended - but be sure to book ahead of time!!
