Nice weekend break
Spent two nights here recently when exploring the Lake District. Staff were super welcoming and helpful during our stay. Room was really nice and comfortable. Shower and bath were great. Unfortunately our neighbours were a little noisy and we could clearly here very loud snoring all night- not the fault of the guesthouse.Ate dinner here on the first night. Portion sizes are very big and it was good pub food. Breakfast was nice and tasty and set us up for a days hiking. Overall we enjoyed

Excellent local cafe
This is our local cafe. We pop in a few times a month. Its decent portions of food for decent prices- apart from maybe the cakes when compared to places in keswick. Food generally served quickly, service is friendly and dogs welcome.Tables inside are well spaced and outside there is plenty of covered and uncovered space.Highly recommend a sausage sandwich, the soup or the Austrian breakfast. A couple more veggie options would be nice but otherwise a nice range of choices.
4. The Coledale Inn

Worth a climb
Another local in Braithwaite, bit of a climb up to this one though –it’s worth it mind. Very friendly reception and most generous portions with the food. I had the Sunday roast pork loin and just couldn’t manage all the roast potatoes. Mrs T enjoyed a duo of pork steaks with black pudding and haggis –and amazingly had room for a sticky toffee pudding to follow.

Surprise for my birthday
Wow. From the moment we walked in we felt at home. Really relaxed very dog friendly. Food is sublime. Roast pork dinners on the first night huge and gorgeous. The slow roast Lamb tonight was the best I have ever had. Breakfast is award winning and rightly so. Rooms great and comfortable. We will be back.

Fine dining in very tasteful surroundings
As a birthday gift my daughter and son treated Steve and I to a 3 night stay at Ivy House and this included dinner on the Saturday evening. Everything about our evening was exceptional, lovely atmosphere, very friendly efficient staff and the most delicious food extremely well presented. Thank you Ivy House for making my birthday extra special.

Had a fantastic meal on Wednesday evening. Friendly, attentive young team running a really lovely restaurant. Good wine list, we had the baked Camembert to share, garlic chicken, and the chilli pulled beef. All the food was cooked and presented uniquely and was absolutely outstanding. Great place

What a find ?
A real gem of a place, for a couple who are changing their diets to include more plant based food. Really helpful and supportive staff. Lots of suggestions and the lentil daal was amazing. We will definitely be back soon.

WATCH OUT FOR BONES IN HAKE!
A local resident, I’ve had many excellent dinners at this restaurant over the years, and it saddens me greatly that my latest experience was very painful – literally. Although my hake, which was supposed to be boneless, was tasty, a piece of stray bone lodged itself – very painfully – into the roof of my mouth, which still hurts every time I swallow – four days on. Regrettably, not being confrontational I didn’t complain on the day, but, in retrospect, I should have. As for the rest of my meal, the goat’s cheese salad was disappointing, as was my sickly-sweet panna cotta. Similarly, my two dining companions were not overwhelmed by their mains, which, unusually for them, they couldn't finish. Regrettably, neither they nor I see ourselves returning any time soon – if ever.

Lovely place, average food
This place has a fantastic informal buzz and vibe. It’s got three small rooms, but each table manages to feel separate as they are round so you can place your backs to the other diners. The service staff are excellent, but I suspect the kitchen staff were either not the usual The high points were; the squid, fresh, crispy and flavoursome; the fried peppers, creamy on the inside and crisp on the outside; the nachos, as expected with all parts of the dish being as expected.The low points were; the patatas bravas were greasy and over cooked leaving little potato flavour; the chicken wings had clearly not been seasoned and led to marinate before cooking, with a burnt skin but a pleasant sauce. We were disappointed that they didn’t serve sangria. We didn’t order desserts but the next table had some lovely looking ones. It was all reasonably priced enough.
