Lighthouse Restaurant Windermere Reviews
Sep 01, 2006
The Lighthouse Restaurant is presumably styled to be a change from the other eateries in the town which all seemed to be either 'faux traditional' pub lunches or general tourist fayre.
It's built in the middle of a fork in the road so the unending stream of traffic flows round both sides of you as you eat. This is accentuated by the floor to ceiling windows on the second floor which means you have a panoramic view of the hustle and bustle going on around you.
Inside it's furnished in a modern style and is spread over three floors ranging from a café feel on the ground floor to a comfy fine dining area on the top floor.
It was pretty quiet when we were there (it was around three thirty in the afternoon) but as the afternoon wore on the outdoor seating area in the front began to fill up quite rapidly.
The food was averagely priced but seemed pretty plentiful portion wise with the menu comprising of a decent selection of restaurant staples. There was also a good drinks menu with even the promise of cocktails although due to the time of day we decided not to indulge.
And we couldn't work out what lighthouses had to do with Windermere...
