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
I was really excited about eating in this restaurant and had looked at the menu before arrival. However the menu was different on the day and once my food arrived I wasn't that impressed. I basically got a burger and chips, which wasn't that amazing. In summary, small changes could make this restaurant really good!
Lovely afternoon tea. We were looked after so well. Attentive, but not intrusive. Thankyou
We love it here and try come every Sunday despite that its a 40 minute drive. The food is delicious, the Bakewell tart dessert is the best ever dessert. Your staff are all brilliant, friendly and professional and we just love the atmosphere it's so 'chilling out'. Can't fault it
We ordered sides to go with our main, however we had to remind the waiter as the sides didn’t come. By the time the side orders arrived we had nearly finished our main course. The cost of the two side orders were taken off the bill, which we didn’t ask for, however it had automatically been taken off when we got the bill
service food and staff were excellent and above expectations.
Carers' Resource invited a group of our carers and their loved ones along for a brunch during Carers' Week (10/6/2019). The entire group had a wonderful time and it provided a much needed treat for people who can feel very isolated, tired and distressed by their role. We would like to thank the staff - both those we met directly and also those in the background, such as the kitchen team, the staff who clean the hotel and the admin team etc - for making our visit so special. The service and the food were wonderful - one of our clients has been refusing to eat so his wife was very surprised and delighted to see him totally clear his plate! As Volunteer Co-ordinator I also brought a team of our volunteers along for a cream tea the previous week, which was Volunteers Week. They had a wonderful time. I sent a thank you note to Maighan for arranging this for me but would like to repeat here how much we enjoyed our visit.
We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Coniston Hotel. The grounds and surroundings are amazing. Our only criticism is how quickly we were served dinner. We sat down at 8.00pm and had finished our starter and main by 8.30. We felt rushed which was a shame.
Excellent short break all staff attentive great facilities and grounds Would definitely return and will recommend to friends & family Food was amazing we ate in both restaurants and respectful staff They even stored our road bikes over night excellent service Guys
Our first visit to Huntsman’s Lodge for Sunday lunch......and it most certainly won’t be our last! As it was my Mum’s 91st Birthday we had asked for a ‘quiet table with a view’ and were delighted to be warmly welcomed and led to such a table. Staff, food and a surprise conversation with Mr Bannister Snr resulting in a glass of Prosecco for the Birthday Girl, all combined to make our visit memorable. Thank you!
Good, caring service, in a very nice welcoming atmosphere. Great views from the panoramic windows. The 4 of us had Afternoon Tea - it was lovely. We are looking forward to our overnight Spa Break stay in June.
Fab brunch in a beautiful place. Excellent service as always. First time my friend had been to coniston hotel. it’s my wedding venue and she loved it as much as we do.
Lady on reception woz exceptionally helpful, eggs Benedict for brekkie fabulous, spa very good , had a fab time n would definitely. Come again
Fabulous food in a stunning restaurant and served by very attentive staff - what more could you ask for!
Wonderful few days away - the scenery and walks around are beautiful including the circular walk around the grounds a Disappointing amount of plastic being used (straws, cups in spa) which could easily be resolved. The hotel itself is slightly dated - food was great though and staff friendly. Loved the dog being there and so lovely she got a toy and bowl . We’ve re booked for our whole family.
Very friendly, relaxed environment. The food was good and served by a friendly and helpful waitress. Great setting to contribute to the overall feeling of getting away from it all!!
We really enjoyed our two dining experiences at teh Huntsmen. Great food, great service.
Wonderful views and food, staff were very polite and attentive. Will definitely return.
As usual attentive staff and good food . Good to be able to have late lunch / early dinner as we had a young child with us .
Always an amazing time spent at the Coniston
Absolutely superb meal on mother’s day - everything including service, atmosphere and of course the fabulous view was spot on!
Lovely time having afternoon tea with the family.
