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.
Fabulous treat! staff wonderful right from meeting John at the front door to Amelia and Rose on reception. Dinner was wonerfull and the wine was even better. Cant wait to return! Thank you for standing out
a most enjoyable evening made memorable with the knowledge of your Sommelier who was going to do the final exams in a few weeks time - best wishes and good luck to him. All staff at Coniston staff are absolutely first class and a credit to you.
We had a lovely meal with excellent service
Good food, good wine, friendly efficient service. I look forward to a return visit
The service was just brilliant. In particular the french waiter was so helpful ,recommending wine and cheese- he got us to try blue cheese with honey which was fabulous. Also recommended port and also brought a taster of ale for my husband to try with the cheese. Amazing service, made our meal and we will return! Thank you Jo and Jason Weir
Everyone was so friendly. The food was excellent..our compliments to the chef and his brigade. Raz , our waiter was cheerful and polite- nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be back .
Have experienced earteries in many places, however both of us enjoyed last night immensely.
The pressed chicken starter was bland and really not appetizing. The table next to us agreed. The main courses were absolutely beautiful. The price increse in drinks, from the bar to the restaurant was eye opening! The pianist was brilliant. Would come back.
Food was incredible. The service was really friendly and lovely romantic atmosphere. The staff really knew their stuff and had fun with us.
The food in Macleods was exceptional as was the staff, so friendly and obliging. It has a more formal atmosphere but we like that. We will definitely be returning when we have a special occasion to celebrate.
Delicious food but need to be ensure style doesn’t take precedence over flavour. Did a perfect piece of lamb really need feta cheese? A lovely scallop dish but only one scallop? Wonderful wine recommendations which perfectly matched the food.
On our last night we had the Flight wines which were an excellant compliment to the first class food. Raz explained the wines and how they matched the food which made for a first class night. Looking forward to our next visit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the restaurant on Saturday evening. The staff are very professional & attentive & cannot do enough for you, even offering my husband honey to try with his blue cheese. The menu choices were lovely & the food was beautiful. The pianist was a lovely addition to the atmosphere too. We will definitely book McLeods when we come back to the hotel
Perfect place to stay
Fabulous food and friendly service.
We've stopped at a lot of hotels up and down the UK, we think this is one of the best. Food is excellent, staff can't do enough. Such an active hotel. Can only be described as a brilliant place to stay.
Excellent ambience from the pianist to the A team! David and Raz, thankyou again presentation of the food is excellent.
Delightful, food delicious and service was excellent A super evevning
Not sure if the steak was cooked rare as ordered, but it was very tasty so no complaints.
The food was exquisite, service outstanding in particular David whose knowledge of cheeses offered was excellent . Fabulous evening with dinner guests Thank you 🙏
Food was delicious, staff were fantastic, surroundings and atmosphere were very comfortable and to top it all prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend the hotel and restaurants to friends.
It was one of the best meals I have ever had and the staff were amazing . You could not get a better meal anywhere else . Thank you so much for making my birthday treat with you so memorable.
Two years ago We celebrated my husbands 60 at Coniston the portions were tiny really poor value for money tables were not even prepared when we got there it was a shambles , I did complain at the time . We thought we would give you another try and although the McLeod bar was very nice , pianist good I didn’t get what I asked for with my starter and was really looking forward to a desert which was so tiny and again presented with something different than I had asked for .We work hard for our money and we’re looking forward to a celebratory meal , I didn’t say anything at the time as we were with friends and didn’t want to spoil the evening . I won’t be coming again and definitely will tell people about my experience .
Raz really made our night - the staff at Coniston are great, but Raz was fantastic. He was friendly, funny, and took time out to explain the dishes and the ingredients. It was great that he had tried the menu and could make recommendations. Every dish was perfect, in terms of taste and quantity. We can’t wait to return!
Really impressed with the quality of the food and the service was exceptional
