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.

Fantastic gastric pub in the lakes. Made to feel really welcome, accommodated us being late and recommend a great taxi company for our weekend. The food is mixed with a good specials board and plenty of local produce. Would defo return if we were round there again 👍

Wonderful food and service, in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. However, portion sizes too small. Appreciate it is a dining experience but myself and everyone I have spoken to who has eaten at 1863 make the same comment that the portions are too small. Only need to increase portion sizes by a small amount to satisfy, which could result in more repeat customer visits.

Superb accommodation and Fantastic food! Presentation was each course was excellent, textures were excellent and the tastes superb. This was enhanced with well recommended wine pairings with each course. Can only be a matter of time before this gem gets a Michelin Star.

We had a really lovely evening, the taster menu was divine, each course seemed to be more spectacular than the last! That said, it was the most expensive meal we have ever had (I didn’t help by ordering the lovely bottle of Sancerre!) and we’d have to think carefully before spending £220 including tip on a meal again. Lastly, the service was great, attentive but not intrusive and the front of house team were really friendly. There was a bit of panic when I needed a number for a local taxi, maybe you could have a regular firm you can recommend who answer their phone! All in, we had a great night thank you.

A very special eating experience! The food was exquisite with real attention to detail. It was a taste experience. Each course bought something of interest and provided a plate of food that did not disappoint. The combination of flavours was both interesting and flavoursome. A real treat!
