Macleod's Restaurant is a traditional yet elegant, bright and airy restaurant which has been popular for many years with those looking for a special dinner on business or for romantic or indeed family occasions. The recently extended Macleod's can also be used for private dining, up to 60 people. it is open every evening serving beautifully prepared organic and locally sourced dishes.
As far back as 1992 Macleod’s restaurant has been the culinary centre of the hotel. Even in the early days a major focus was placed on high quality local ingredients, and when the seasons allowed, produce from the estate such as fish and game were often used in certain dishes (some of which still sit pride of place on our menu). Today, with its crisp white table cloths, smart glassware, and exceptional service, Macleods sets a different pace and service style to the Huntsman lodge. A slightly more “old school” style, where we make no apologies for the “ladies before gentlemen” attitude that sometimes gets lost in modern restaurants. So what’s so special? Homemade flavoured breads that are baked daily in our kitchens, a refined and interesting menu which packs bags of flavour and Yorkshire produce, all matched with immaculate presentation. We are really proud to call this the heart, and the start, of the Coniston culinary journey.
Wonderful place, gorgeous food, perfect wine pairing and lovely staff
Delightful, worth dressing up tp visit, food and service excellent. Atmosphere relaxing especially with the talented pianist with the live piano music......
A lovely fine dining restaurant! our food was delicious and the service excellent.
The food was very well presented, and very tasty! Compliments to the chef! We will definitely be visiting again.
The Coniston Hotel is such a lovely place to relax and just unwind the service from Cheak in was excellent and prompt and friendly and helpful my room was very nice and spotlessly clean . the spa was also excellent and the staff were very helpful and the 2 hour slot gives you plenty of time to unwind relax and enjoy the beautiful views why you are sat in the Hotub outside. In the evening I was dining in the Macleods Restaurant the food and service was excellent and so lovely to hear the gentleman play the piano why you are having dinner so my overall experience was perfect I just want to say thank you to all the the team at Coniston Hotel for a pleasant stay and I will look forward to coming back in the near future and seeing you all again kind regards Mr k sugden

What a gorgeous restaurant. The food was unbelievable, we’ve told all our friends and family about it!
A fantastic weekend with outdoor activities and a rejuvenating spa experience. The food in Macleods was amazing, the service was equally as good. Friendly, helpful staff really made this a memorable experience.
Food was tremendous and great service in Macleod's Restaurant.
A wonderful meal to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday
The food was all excellent apart from the millefeuille dessert which wasn’t worth the money . Tasted like cardboard unfortunately so was surprised and disappointed as the starter and main were both excellent!
Great food and fantastic service.
An excellent restaurant worthy of its AA rosettes.
Thank you. Particularly the reception staff and David to the restaurant.
Absolutely amazing, David is fantastic he makes you feel very comfortable and helps with any issue you have, he knows his wine and food , the other waiters are fab to. The food was gorgeous they got my steak perfect first time which is very difficult as most chefs don’t like serving fillet steak chilled , we will definitely be coming back as we absolutely love this hotel
We regularly dine at 2AA rosette restaurants but following last nights dinner we are of the opinion that it was deserving of a higher rating.
I don’t usually write comments unless the are good, but to be honest we were very disappointed with the food. The starter tasted warmed up and we both had the lamb which was tasteless. We are foodies and eat out at many good restaurants including Michelin star establishments. We look for locally sourced products with good taste. The redeeming factor was the dessert. The service was very good but the food is to us the whole point of the evening and it was such a let down. We don’t mind paying for quality but we’re left feeling quite frankly ripped off ! My aim for these comments is to hopefully encourage change for the better. As the front of house staff were fabulous.
Ate here two nights running. Good food and service and wine card had an interesting selection.
We had an excellent 3 course meal, each one was of a very high standard. The choice of wines was very good and the variety was very wide. All of this was backed up with excellent service from friendly staff both in the restaurant and throughout the hotel
Excellent service and food great wine list thoroughly enjoyed our stay staff attentive and polite will definitely return and tell all our friends and family
