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.
We really enjoyed our evening meal except for the mushrooms on toast which were quite bland. The only other thing that did spoil it a bit was when people were using the entrance door to the hotel it was quite cold. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely would return. Breakfast was excellent. Really good quality and poached eggs were cooked perfectly. Again excellent service.
Lovely atmosphere , very friendly staff, good menu and good covid protocol in place. Will definitely return.
Decided to treat ourselves to afternoon tea, good decision! Lovely food in the warm and comfortable View restaurant. Felt very safe with staff wearing masks etc and socially distanced tables.
Very enjoyable meal great service as always.
Lovely food, friendly and helpful staff
Quality of food was excellent, and staff could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. The ambiance was lovely with fabulous decorations and of course, fabulous view. The whole experience was a delight and I look forward to returning soon.
Excellent safe service...superb food.. felt comfortable and safe at all times.. Thankyou
Thank you to all the staff for making us feel safe and able to visit our favourite place. Christmas greetings and hopes for a much calmer 2021 for you all.
As always the food and service at the view restaurant was fabulous. The restaurant was decorated beautifully and was very festive Thank you for a wonderful evening
Very friendly staff. Was made to feel very safe with the service and great food..
there were 4 of us dining, 2 who ordered the hake sadly it had to be sent back as it was cold. The other 2 dishes of fish pie and vegetarian dish were absolutely fine. The team apologised and both of the bake dishes were returned as soon as they had been reheatrd
We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at The Coniston Hotel. Your COVID-19 measures were exemplary and we felt very safe indeed. We had a lovely walk around the lake on arrival. All the staff were superb, what a fantastic team you have. My 3 stars for atmosphere merely reflects the amount of customers. One small thing to note was that we were unaware that our “festive menu” deal was a £20 allowance for each person, whereas we thought we had any 2 courses + pay for any extras & drinks. This wasn’t really a problem, but led to some confusion in understanding the bill, so this is just an observation and not a criticism. We live just down the road in Skipton, so hadn’t travelled far, and we would certainly consider returning in the future - if only to dine. All the best to all your team for Christmas, New Year, and the future. Let’s hope things start to improve soon. Jim & Angie Darwin.
Lovely warm welcoming staff . Excellent but unobtrusive service . Felt very safe good Covid measures in place . Great menu which offered a wide range of seasonal dishes. Would highly recommend and will be back
Lovely meal, excellent service and the COVID-19 measures were greatly appreciated. I preferred the old name for this restaurant but that’s just my personal view!
From the warm welcome to the tasty food, a very nice lunch time experience that I would confidently recommend to anyone. As a learning point I would ask the servers to be a bit more attentive to their guests after the food has been served. On a number of occasions I did have to attract the servers attention to order more drinks and also to request the bill. Within the context of the occasion these were minor points. Very impressed with David personally wishing us a happy Christmas as we left the restaurant.
Excellent night,well done to all.
