About 1863 Bar Bistro Rooms
Often foraged, largely local, always changing.
Head Chef Phil Corrie leads a talented kitchen team creating carefully-structured, regularly-changing menus that allow you to savour all three courses yet not feel overwhelmed or ‘stuffed’ by the end.
An 1863 dining experience will no doubt generate conversation around the table on the night, but we hope will also give you something to talk about long after you’ve left for the evening.
Great food, lovely staff, would highly recommend it
A fantastic evening, thank you to the whole team and especially Phil. You made our anniversary really special.
Lovely interior design, friendly staff, and excellent food and drinks. We will recommended to our friends.
Fantastic place, great accommodation, fantastic food, all served by friendly and professional staff. Really couldn’t ask for anymore and would genuinely recommend.
Absolutely fabulous! Excellent food and great service! Pooley Bridge is lucky to have such a gem. We’ll be back for sure.
I’d highly recommend this restaurant. We went to the 1863 having seen it on trip advisor and the quality of the food far surpassed our expectations. We had a meal of the highest quality and were delighted by what we were served. Our experience was so good that we immediately re-booked for a special meal to celebrate my mother’s birthday.
We very much enjoyed our night here, all the staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was divine. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed very comfortable.
2nd time here , the food is outstanding. Always a good choice of foods and cooked to perfection. Also a big shout out to the bar and restaraunt staff. Always freindly and with a smile.
We had a lovely dinner at Bistro 1863 on Saturday evening. The food was absolutely delightful. Exceptional flavours, and beautifully presented. Great service too, we were really well looked after. I would heartily recommend this lovely restaurant.
it would have been good to have been able to order sides of vegetables the dishes were somewhat expensive for their size. the vegetarian option was insubstantial.
Had an amazing time last night at 1863, the staff were amazing in helping us pair wines to our dishes and being all around brilliant. Would book every week if I didn’t work away!
Lovely little hotel, excellent restaurant and service. Great place for a stopover or as a base to explore the lakes.
Only dropped star was that we waited 15 minutes before being offered a drink on arrival
The most amazing restaurant ever! Food, staff are all exceptional it’s a fabulous experience going there !!!!!
