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? Complimentary “amuse Bouche”, 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 food and service are excellent
We had a lovely meal! Excellent food and service.
Excellent service from friendly professional staff. Great choice of food, would recommend for any occasion but especially for celebration occasions. We'll definitley be back!!
My husband & I had an overnight stay here which was an Xmas gift and can recommend. We were able to have an upgraded room with excellent views which was a bonus. All the staff are very friendly and attentive. Our meal in MacClouds restaurant was excellent and well worth the extra. We didn't use the spa on this occasion but I would like to return to rectify this!
I was surprised to see a £4 charge on the bill at checkout for the reservation at Macleods. I was never told this. I was contacted a week before my stay recommending I book a table as it can get busy so I booked a table but the lady never informed me that I'd be charged for making that booking so feel like the call was done deliberately to make some more money. I feel the main courses should come with veg given that the menu states "Although all the above dishes come complete with vegetables - please see below selection if you would like additional vegetables." I had the pan fried chicken which was literally chicken and potato no vegetables in sight. - The food was tasty and service was great just those points above let the visit down slightly
Exceptional food and service. Really enjoyed the dining experience at Macleods. Top quality.
Wonderful food and service.
David was a great maitre’d and looked after us very well for the evening. The food was lovely as usual and as such i’ve recomended The Coniston to many friends over the years as it’s always a great experience.
This was our 2nd visit to Macleods. Food has been beautiful both times, and the staff are so friendly and make you feel so relaxed. There is literally not one negative thing i can say. They even printed a sheet of music out for the pianist, so he could play our wedding first dance song (it was our wedding anniversary!). Highly recommend this restaurant
We had a lovely meal. The staff were great and were keen we to ensure we had a fabulous experience which we did. We will definitely be back- a real Yorkshire gem! Appreciated our waiter sharing the other facilities on offer.
First class in all areas. Food excellent, service very very good very attentive staff. Very clean. Very good value for money. I am happy to highly recommend Coniston Hall's McCleods Restaurant.
We had my Mother's 90th Birthday celebration in Macleods Restaurant. It was a great place to celebrate such a momentous occasion. Food was good, service good and the atmosphere was great. Only small comment was that one guest who ordered the lamb, was not prepared for it to be so pink, but this was soon sorted out. The food was good value for money in our opinion given we were in such a good restaurant! We enjoyed our stay so much, that we have booked to stay for a long weekend in a few weeks time!!
Absolutely Fabulous meal and experience
Excellent food, nice spa and a good weekend had.
Friendly staff great food
fantastic tasty first class food and service, friendly and attentive ,staff lovely cosy rooms that are spotless we will see you again next year.
The food and drink was superb as was the service unfortunately there was little atmosphere as there was only us and another couple dining, however the weather. Was bad and I suspect there had been many cancellations due to this
Always lives up to our expectations, one of our favourite restaurants.
We had a fantastic time - the service was great as was the food and the staff could not have done more for us!
Excellent staff, wonderful food and a beautiful atmosphere. Thank you
The food was superb, although I didn’t read the menu properly and could have done with some green veg with my main course, that apart, it was perfect for a special night out, including the excellent service. Thanks for a great evening!
In a word - underwhelming. We booked online having seen the Valentine's menu, advertised on your website as being served until the 17th Feb. When we arrived we were handed the standard a la carte menu, and when we asked about the Valentine's menu we were told that it had ended the previous day. We checked online and your website was still advertising the Valentine's menu for that night, the 17th. We probably would not have booked on the basis of the a la carte menu. We were not offered the taster menu. This came to light when we heard the guests at neighbouring tables being offered the taster menu. The waiter could offer no reason for this, but we were given a glass of Prosecco each by way of apology. However, this rather compounded the first problem, since a taster menu would probably have been more to our liking than the a la carte menu. The vegetables arrived well over five minutes after our main course; I had to ask for them twice. This also happened to a neighbouring table. My desert (A Taste of Mocha) was very disjointed - milkshake and cookies for £8.50? Overall, this was not the fine dining experience we'd anticipated, and we were very disappointed. I'd advise guests to eat instead at the Huntsman's lodge, where the food and service were both outstanding.
Fantastic service, high quality food, most brilliant evening.
Fantastic as always!
One of the best dining experiences we have ever had. If there was anything to comment on I wouldn’t say negative but when being served our main meal from the valentines menu the waiter was hesitant as if he forgot what was on the plate. He said ‘uh uh lamb?’ And he gave it to us even though we knew it was in fact pork that we ordered and lamb was not on the menu at all that evening. This was not a problem to us we are very light hearted people and understand mistakes can be made but I can imagine that some people would have not been best pleased with this. There is nothing else to fault, our experience was definitely a treat especially with the knowledge of the wine master he seemed to know his stuff ;) as well as our taste buds!
