About Huntsman's Lodge

Set in one of the most unique dining spaces in North Yorkshire, the Huntsmans lodge offers a breath taking setting for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. With the magnificent fireplace at its heart, and the stunning views of the lake, there is really no better place to relax and unwind whilst at Coniston.

On fine days, our outside terrace offers unrivalled views of Malhamdale and the surrounding countryside, the perfect place to enjoy a chilled bottle of champagne and enjoy some “field food” (our take on Yorkshire tapas).

The food offering is simple yet enjoyable; think home comforts, great local Yorkshire steaks, fresh fish delivered daily and an award winning afternoon tea, our food in Huntsman is relaxed and informal yet served with flair and passion by our long standing team.

Whether it’s coffee and cake with friends, an important business lunch or a family celebration, you’ll be surrounded by breathtaking sights and elegance as you walk into the exquisite new Huntsman’s Lodge.

It's centrepiece, a roaring open fire, draws you in before your attention turns to the glass wall, with the sun terrace looking over the 24-acre lake and far-reaching views of The Dales.

Call in from 10am in the morning until 9.30pm, the Huntsman's Lodge offers a wide range of drinks and food to suite all tastes : Morning Coffee, Lunch, Afternoon tea, Evening snacks are all served in the relaxing atmosphere every day

The service was very dis jointed. One member of staff seated us, another took the order, a different one delivered the food. No courtesy check was done either. Also waited a long time for someone to take the order then even longer for food to come. Overall very disappointed.

The meals were not quite hot enough when they came out, but this was corrected very quickly and everything was lovely. Great service as always. Thanks

Food and desserts came within 5/10 minutes of ordering, which we were highly impressed about. The food was amazing and the service was lovely.

My partner and I had the most wonderful dinner at The Huntsman's Lodge. The service, and the food were fantastic. There were a couple of the staff whom looked to be new to the hotel, and even though they were new - they were also professional and great. We will most definitely be back again before the end of the year. Thank you, Lauren

My friend and I went for a light lunch and coffee, we had to send the food back as it was cold, we ordered the mushrooms on toasted ciabatta, buttered spinach and paid extra for a poached egg and hollandaise sauce, we also thought it was overpriced for what you got, half a small ciabatta roll, a dessert spoon of spinach and not much more of the mushrooms, the food was replaced with a warmer serving. I noticed some people on another table sent theirs back as it was cold. Disappointing for Coniston.

Delicious food in beautiful surroundings. Service was prompt, although a touch rushed but nothing to complain about as everything was served as ordered. Would recommend and will be visiting again for certain!

Just one niggle. Our party was seated at the first table on the left in the dining room and the draught coming through the lobby was extremely noticable.

We had a lovely evening meal on 10 December - four friends catching up. The service was swift and friendly and the food excellent - especially the lamb rump, which was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was good, as always, particularly with the roaring central fire. The weather was particularly horrible - pouring with rain and with high winds. And it's here that I have just one small niggle. Most of those eating had wet coats and there seemed to be nowhere to leave them - at least, we weren't offered a cloakroom or even a hook on which to leave sodden outer garments, so they had to steam quietly on the backs of our chairs. Perhaps something to consider for the future? But, overall, many, many thanks for a lovely evening.

Restaurant was beautifully decorated for the festive season. Service was attentive and food tasty. The only blip we experienced was that our reserved table had been given to another couple. We were told it was a mix up and the waitress thought the other couple was us. Really, a simply check of name would have resolved the problem. No offer to resolve the issue we were told to choose another table. !! Not the standard i expected from a quality restaurant.
