It felt covid safe. Staff friendly and efficient . Food delicious. Blankets offered for outdoor warmth. Beautiful views , a lovely experience.
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch on Tuesday April 20th. The weather helped of course but we were very happy with the food and the service. Pleasantly surprised at the wide choice. Well done everyone
Lovely meal at the Coniston as usual except the rhubarb and ginger cheesecake wasn’t to their usual high standard. It didn’t spoil the evening though which was superb.
Wonderful, perfect start to eating out again. I really appreciated being able to sit in the sun with a lovely view. Could not ask for better service, food and wine and ambiance.
Absolutely loved our experience. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. The food was lovely and arrived in good time. Love that you use lots of locally sourced products. The views are absolutely stunning and it was nice to see so much thought had gone into the outside seating arrangements which were warm and cosy. Our waitress was particularly wonderful, even offered to take a picture for us, really sorry I didn't get her name but she, and the rest of your team, are a credit to you! Will definitely be back for another visit in the near future. Thank you for making our first meal out in a long time so, so special.
Excellent in every way. Safe and very covid friendly Will definitely be coming back.
We had a beautiful meal, the food was excellent the service was too, we were given a blanket as it was a little chilly and I asked if we could be sat near a heater and they accommodated- thank you 😊
Really lovely food and an amazing gluten free menu, will be returning!
Lovely meal. Felt very safe and well thought out. Our first venture out post lockdown and we will be back. First class!
Easy to book online. The restaurant was well set up with a wonderful view over the lake. The food was delicious as always and the staff extremely friendly. It was nice to be able to enjoy eating out again.
We really enjoyed the whole experience and will be there again soon.
As always the environment was great. The service was slow. Very friendly staff but long delays in between courses and we asked for coffee after desserts which never arrived. Starters and desserts were really lovely but the main courses were a little average. We found this when we visited last time too. Great with government guidelines to ensure guests and staff are safe and the outdoor seating area is really lovely.
We week made to feel very safe and ALL the staff were so polite, friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious along with the fantastic views whilst we dined. Mr Bannister also greeted us and had a little chat which was very nice. We will be returning very soon.
I really should have said but the fish and chips were poor .... tasteless fish and very soggy batter . We enjoyed our afternoon very much a lovely 3 hours and Amanda our waitress was lovely and our table , the view the weather and my husbands spring salad also very good ..... but fish and chips should be a banker !!
Very friendly and efficient staff and a lovely afternoon tea.
Yet again another flawless visit to the Coniston. Staff are so attentive and a pleasure to have dinner in such a wonderful setting.
We really enjoyed our meal and all thought that the Covid measures were well thought out and as inobtrusive as possible whilst still being effective. Well done.
Fabulous service once again. Safety measures in place could not be faulted. Food was wonderful and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Perfect night out before entering another lockdown. Thank you
Lovely attentive staff. Excellent COVID - secure environment
Fantastic food and service, it was just a very large space so didn’t feel particularly special. And we were seated for a while before any music was played which would have added to the atmosphere more
Could not fault anything about our meal. Cosy friendly restaurant, excellent choice on menu, staff were attentive and polite. The quality of our food was superb. Would certainly recommend to anyone and we will be coming back.
We had a lovely meal with excellent service and will be back soon!
Wonderful service, amazing food in a great atmosphere. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough and we can’t wait to return.
Brilliant experience, lovely staff and beautiful space.
Staff were all friendly. Food was good but not exceptional, we both had steak, asked for it to be cooked medium but was well done.
