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.

We enjoyed the food but not as much as on previous occasions. The fish was lovely but there was nothing with it, I do like some veg.

Great service and an interesting take on the dishes. We really enjoyed it, however, a couple of the dishes had an overwhelming taste of salt which drowned out other flavors. Overall it was good value for money and would try again.

We arrived on a wintry December night to a friendly greeting and a cozy log fire. We were shown to our room which we had pre-booked. It was totally comfortable. Food was an absolute treat which we enjoyed tremendously. We chose to have our wine as recommended with each course before resorting to the chairs by the fire. John and Emily McConaghie

We welcomed New Year in for a fourth time at 1863. Fantastic food, a wonderful atmosphere (including dancing, late into the evening), and immaculate service from a relaxed but highly professional team made it a special occasion. It’s pricey, but worth it.

My fiancee and I enjoyed the 6 course taster menu as part of our engagement celebrations and had a perfect evening. Food, drink, atmosphere and friendly service were all flawless and we will definitely be back!

Amazing food, knowledgable, relaxed customer focused staff and service, no hint of the pretentiousness that often goes with restaurants that think they’re good. 1863 is a truly wonderful restaurant with excellent staff and up there with the best meals we’ve ever eaten. Would recommend it highly.

We visited twice over the christmas break whilst staying in Pooley Bridge and on both occasions the food and service was excellent! We have already recommended to friends and I'm sure we will be back very soon ourselves.

The room, food and drinks were awesome, perhaps the only minor tweak we would make is the music selection!!

It was my birthday, the weather was fowl and I almost cancelled. Boy, am I glad that I didn’t. The food was exquisite, service impeccable. I’ve rarely experienced better. It’s a gem!

We had a wonderful evening at 1863. It was a big treat for us, celebrating on our honeymoon and it was certainly special! The food was amazing and they made an extra treat for us as it was a special occasion. Those thoughtful extra details make are much appreciated. We would definitely go back!

Great way to spend a night out Food excellent in relaxing surroundings . Last time we came I remember being impressed with a fish course . This time the standout dishes were the sirloin or my wife’s venison , both were excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable staff made for a great night that I’ll look forward to repeating soon . Next time might have to stay over so that can go for the full experience 👍
