For both superb cuisine and lodgings in the Lake District, the Miller Howe Hotel on Rayrigg Road never disappoints. What sets this local icon apart from other nearby lodging options is its restaurant, a stunning, sophisticated dining spot that offers gourmet British cuisine in a gorgeous setting. Featuring beautiful views over Lake Windermere and its surrounding landscaped grounds and with an incredible terrace perfect for sitting out on warm summer days, the restaurant at Miller Howe Hotel is unlike anywhere else. The menu features an array of gourmet European dishes and British specialities that head chef Andy Beaton has updated to suit modern tastes, and you’ll find that the exquisite flavours almost perfectly match the restaurant’s stunning natural setting. With such a reputation for excellence, Miller Howe Hotel stays busy – book ahead of time to secure a table.
The service was very attentive and professional and the food was outstanding in terms of quality and flavour. All staff i encountered were friendly and polite and i wouldn't hesitate to go back. Thank you.
Would highly recommend the Miller Howe Hotel and restaurant. Superb food, great ambiance and fantastic views of Windermere and the Langdale Pikes - well worth a visit.
Me and friends had lunch in the Miller Howe that we all happy and satisfied with the nice service and good quality foods, especially the excellent environment. hanna
Stayed one night. Lovely lake view room with balcony; room clean and had everything we needed, very comfy bed. Afternoon tea a bit carb heavy but dinner was stunning! Beautifully cooked and presented, smallish portions. Breakfast was lovely too and we were able to walk on Windermere shore straight from the front door. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very impressed.
Miller Howe is a beautiful hotel - stunning views of Windermere & the Langdales. It is one of the area's perfect Arts & Crafts period houses, full of original furniture & decoration but with appropriate services for the present day. We had a birthday lunch which definitely came into the ' fine 'dining' category, although I think, perhaps, the food's presentation leans towards pretentious. The new chef is clearly putting his heart & soul into showing what he can do - just simplify it a bit. Joanna, the manager, is lovely, a huge asset to one of my favourite places. I have no idea if it's open at Xmas but it would be magical then, I'm sure!
Haven't been to Miller Howe in a while, but decided to give it a go for lunch on Monday since we were going to be in the area. So glad we did! The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly from the moment we walked through th door. The food was excellent -- and we've eaten in two Michelin 2-star restaurants in the past six weeks, and so know where the benchmark's set. If you haven't eaten there since Craig Davies took over as Head Chef, go make a reservation.
Food was excellent.I had lunch there only a moth ago- 11 of us.The same floor manager was there but no recognition at all.Three of us arrived at 7.50pm for an 8 pm table booking.We had to wait 20 minutes to be offered a drink then at 8.25pm I went looking for the Floor Manager and found her talking with two members of staff. Told her I wanted serving to eat,wanted to see a Menu.Got a very cold response so told her it wou be nice if she had just recognised my wife and I from last month and that I should not have to go searching for her to get served.No apologies at all.Got the Menus and wine list and eventually we were shown our table. One of the worst experiences of hostile, bad service I have ever had.Two waitresses were fine.When we finished I had to go and ask for my bill and paid it to this same awful woman." You want to give me the money?" She asked. I paid and for only the second time in my life ,gave no tip.She said nothing,not even eg " did you enjoy your meal" I will not be back there while she is employed at the Hotel.Awful.Appalling.But very good food.
We arrived and were shown through to the lounge and drinks orders taken, then we waited approx 1hour to be seated and had been without drinks for approx 20mins without anyone checking in on us, we then had our starters to which i mist say were delicious the main course arrived 50 mins later again the food was very good, however we had noticed other guests who had ordered after us being served well before us, we did order the cheese to share and again after a lengthy wait it arrived and this was not the best selection of cheeses it was ok albeit lots of crackers etc. So in summery nice food but for me just lacking in service for the prices we paid.
Had a wonderful stay at the Miller Howe. We were welcomed and taken to our room which was very comfortable with great views down to the lake. The lounge area was relaxing with cosy seating and a wood burner. We really enjoyed our dining experience, excellent food and attentive staff. Highly recommended, we look forward to our next visit.
Prior to arrival very helpful regarding the menu. Very warm welcome at reception, bar and in restaurant. Personal touch with welcome card. Menu selection reasonable, quality of food and wine excellent. Very reasonable price for set menu although price of wine rather high. Service excellent. Highly recommend this lunch time experience.
