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.
The Coniston Hotel never cease to amaze us, especially in these uncertain times. We had a wonderful three day stay for Christmas and not once did we feel worried about COVID. They have procedures in place to safeguard both staff and guests which was more then excellent. Our room was spotless and very comfy with a view looking over to the Lake where, weather permitting , one can watch sunrise while still in bed. In the room a lovely gift on the table with an assortment of nuts and tangerines., not to mention a gift for the dog too. The food through out our stay was second to none as was the service, we couldn’t have asked for anymore. So, we’ll done The Coniston Hotel and Staff, you were all amazing and worked so hard to give us all a wonderful time. We’ve booked again for next year.
Christmas Day lunch was absolutely excellent! Service, atmosphere and the food was just amazing. We would definitely return in the summer for lunch.
Our holiday break was outstanding, service couldn’t be faulted staff were both friendly and efficient. The grounds are amazing, a hidden gem, plenty of walks giving you an appetite for the lovely food. Our bill was a surprise much lower than expected, well done.
A lovely meal, in a very relaxed environment. The staff were attentive , courteous and very efficient. We felt very safe - covid precautions were excellent.
Amazing evening dining at your restaurant, food and drinks were both superb! Thank you :-)
Had a wonderful two nights at The Coniston Hotel and Spa. The breakfast were beautifully cooked to order and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend
Amazing food and service as always
Great food and lovey service
Lovely food and great service. We will be returning soon!
Evening Menu could be improved to make it more ‘fine dining’, dishes such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne, burger & pasta are currently on eve menu, but are too much like lunchtime food. Not enough specials.
Wonderful place, gorgeous food, perfect wine pairing and lovely staff
