Why We Love It

  • This family-run Victorian restaurant with rooms is 15 minutes' walk from Lake Windermere
  • Bowness-on-Windermere is 5 minutes by car, Ambleside is a 15-minute drive away
  • The restaurant is recommended by The Observer's Jay Rayner


The Lamplighter Dining Rooms is a family-run property in the town of Windermere. It dates back to 1865, and is built from Lakeland stone. 

Windermere, "the queen of Lake District lakes" (Lonely Planet), is a 15-minute walk away. We recommend the short hike up Orrest Head for superb views of the of Lake Windermere, the Lake District Fells, Morecambe Bay and the Pennines. Bowness-on-Windermere is 5 minutes by car, Ambleside is a 15-minute drive away

National Trust-run Hill Top, the house Beatrix Potter bought with the royalties from her books, is 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. Dove Cottage, where poet William Wordsworth lived, is a 20-minute drive in Grasmere. You can take a guided tour of the house and gardens, and visit The Wordsworth Museum, which displays his original letters, journals and poems.

The hotel's restaurant serves traditional British dishes, and is a North West finalist in the 2019 Restaurant Awards. The Observer's critic Jay Rayner is a fan of the "glorious" bone-on rib of beef and a "magnificent" cauliflower cheese, which are served at Sunday lunch. The bar stocks local ales, wine and more than 15 varieties of gin. There is a roaring fire in the winter.

In keeping with the 19th-century building, bedrooms have a Victorian look, with striped wallpaper and polished-wood beds. All have renovated bathrooms.

Rooms were a bit tired looking. Bed dipped in the middle. Food nice but was given a special Travelzoo menu which was not as interesting or varied as the normal menu

The food and the service from all staff was fantastic.
Other Comments
This was brilliant value for money, taking into account the food was excellent and I would have paid quite a lot for that meal..I can also recommend the cocktails! The staff were fantastic and my only slight negative would be that the room was too hot - even with the window open (in January!) - we would definitely stay (and eat) here again though.
