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.
A wonderful restaurant with amazing food and service in a gorgeous location
A wonderful B&B with wonderful staff. The taster menu is a must, the food was out of this world.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit from start to finish, our evening was perfect, fabulous food from the chefs fabulous service from our hostess and barman The restaurant was immaculately clean and fresh with quirky design detail. We’ll be back.
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.
Yet another excellent evening
Superb covers it!
Amazing food and exceptional service, as always. One of our favourite places.
Had a lovely stay couldn't fault anything. Will definitely go back.
We had a beautiful meal , the service and surrounding were great,will be back and will recommend to friends and family. Thank you
Another excellent stay @ 1863. Can not fault anything The service, staff ,food, & accommodation are first class. Look forward to our next visit. Thank you.
Everything about the stay and friendly staff was perfect.
Beautiful meal in a cosy and relaxing setting.
Third time I have visited 1863 and each time has been amazing! It's the perfect place for a special occasion.
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.
Fantastic food and a lovely interior style. Highly recommended.
We had a lovely meal. The food was amazing and the service we received was excellent.
Fantastic 3 night stay. Great room (No 6), comfortable and warm. Staff attentive, helpful and really friendly. Food excellent. Beautiful intense flavours, exquisite presentation in an informal but intimate atmosphere. Looking forward to our return.
Another amazing stay and meal. Tasting menu highly recommended. Waiting staff so so pleasant, helpful, informative and smiley. Can’t wait to be able to get to Pooley Bridge again. Thank you.
Limited choice on the menu for me but the food I had was lovely Staff were very attentive and it is a lovely place
Delicious meal, beautiful combinations of flavours. Staff pleasant and efficient. A very pleasant evening.
Just brilliant could not fault anything.
We would definitely recommend a visit, the food was faultless.
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!
