Staff were great, very attentive. Food was beautiful. Can’t wait to come back for a meal
Great service and atmosphere
Excellent lunch. It was our first time out. We all felt safe, as the team ensured all rules due to covid were followed. But this not distract from our experience. we all had a lovely time.
Terrific surroundings and very pleasant, competent Staff. Only irritation was trying to fill in the questionnaire on line. Gave up with that after 30 mins.
From start to finish the service was excellent. Food lovely, and setting its just amazing. We were very impressed with all the new covid protocols. Very professional, and we felt safe at all times
We had a superb table by the window, with the fabulous views. The food was excellent and the staff were excellent - we felt very safe throughout with the measures in place for Covid-19, thanks to the organisation and hard work of all the staff.
Excellent food and service. We felt very safe at all times.
Felt really reassured, relaxed and safe. The staff were very friendly and the service was top notch. First time dining at the coniston and will certainly be coming back. Thanks
In the current climate, we had a very enjoyable evening; as ever the standards were very good. The measures that they have put in place work, but dont spoil the enjoyment
Lovely food, attentive staff and magnificent views, a fab birthday treat, thank you.
As my mother has a garlic allergy it was hugely disappointing to be told that all the main courses contain garlic. She therefore had to have 2 starters instead which was less than satisfactory for Sunday lunch. When she asked why this was the case, she was told that it added to the flavour - not helpful! Restaurants cater for many other allergies and I thought a hotel of quality of Coniston would be able to meet her needs. Another member of the family haas the same allergy so would also be unable to enjoy a full lunch with you.
Sunday lunch at The Coniston Hotel was everything I hoped it still would be. I couldn’t wait to have their wonderful Roast Beef and YORKSHIRE pudding. It didn’t disappoint. Most important of all, with all this chaos around us with COVID-9 , we felt absolutely safe with all the precautions the staff have in place. Well done team Coniston.
The food was extremely tasty and lots of choice on the menu. Not too pricey and you get a lot of food! Although, I ordered the battered fish and chips and realised afterwards that it didn't come with the tartare sauce that was stated in the description. Felt very safe with all the covid 19 safety regulations but shocked to see that the staff were not social distancing with each other (nor with some customers) and sharing ipads and trays without sanitising them first.
The afternoon tea was delicious! There was a mix up with the voucher we had but this was promptly resolved by the food and beverage manager Mark. Will definitely be back
Wine a little on the pricey side.
Great service and delicious food. Lovely setting. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Good to see an eatery taking the COVID rules seriously
Very well organised during this awful pandemic, we felt safe and were very well looked after. The afternoon tea was excellent. will be back soon.
Delicious food, impeccable service and a thoroughly enjoyable Sunday Lunch.
Love the new decor and as always the service and food was super! We didn’t read the website properly, booked online and didn’t realise that Sunday dinner service stopped at 4pm (we’d missed your Sunday lunches all through lockdown!) but your chef was very good and made 5 of us Sunday dinner! You have taken good precautions against Corona Virus but I didn’t feel that it spoilt the atmosphere of the restaurant! Well done to all concerned! We’ll be back!
Such a lovely afternoon. The view looks gorgeous and we were lucky to get a lake view table. Very well organised for the social distance side of things. Can’t wait to come back.
As always a lovely experience
Great experience, clearly lots of thought and effort gone into the system to make it as safe as possible. We really enjoyed our meal.
A fabulous meal in The View Restaurant. I love the new menu. Great procedures in place to ensure safely for all. Take my advice and book a table.
Very well organised, we felt safe and very much looked after. The food was ample and tasty but not too out facing. We had room for a sweet and coffee too! The new decor was very pleasing and The View is so special. We will definately be back! Thank you 😊
