Elizabeth said: "Amazing culinary delight with fabulously innovative tasting menu. Love the locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Super professional, welcoming, knowledgeable waiting staff, Abigail, and Emma. A joy to watch a chef, Mark, and his support team, Tony, and Son-of-Tony, preparing each course with precision and perfection. A captivating, totally relaxed evening to round-off a truly memorable holiday in this most friendly of areas. Huge thanks all. We will be back when next in the area."

  • Rogan & Co

The Michelin starred restaurant is held in very high regard in the county.

Located in Cartmel, Rogan & Co is one of the most popular restaurants in Cumbria.

David said: "This is dining probably at its best. Superbly trained staff, attention to the smallest detail and having to have great knowledge of the food they are serving. You should be prepared for nouvelle cuisine size portions, which because they are mouth wateringly delicious, are on the very small side. Strangely informal table presentation for such an establishment. There are two or three annexe areas to the main room which for us made us feel a little out on a limb."

  • Number Nine Bar & Kitchen

Market's Street popular pub in Kirkby-Lonsdale holds a five star rating online.

Christine said: "First visit to this restaurant. The welcome was warm, the food delicious and the atmosphere good. I asked for non-alcoholic cocktails as these were not listed and this was no problem at all and we were presented with two delicious cocktails - apple and custard and sex on the beach (without the sex - well it was our 39th wedding anniversary). We enjoyed the meal very much and will return."

  • Ristorante Da Vinci

The Millom restaurant has a wide variety of Italian, Pizza, and Mediterranean dishes.

Dave said: "Not only were the portion sizes phenomenal, but the taste was exceptional. I am a big eater, but I couldn't finish it (and only had Rissotto with a side of Veg & Potatoes). Wonderful service."

  • King Billy

Millom's highly rated steakhouse is well regarded in the community, and offers bar service and British food.

Darren said: "Thank you again for such a great week of meals whilst staying at the lodge with our family for Christmas. Honestly the best steak I have ever had, father in law also commented how amazing his Christmas dinner was. Over the past year have had eight steaks at this restaurant and everyone of them was the best I have had, coming from London area we have a lot to choose from down here, will hold out until we’re back up the lakes again."
