Overlooking the southern tip of Lake Windermere, The Newby Bridge Hotel and Restaurant has a location that already makes it the envy of many a restaurant in the UK. What distinguishes it from others with equally beautiful locations around the Lake District, however, is the food. The Newby Bridge Garden View Restaurant has an elegant dining room (balancing old-world kitsch and effortless chic) overlooking their Mediterranean Gardens, where you can enjoy some superb modern British fare from head chef Kevin Hodge. The menu changes in keeping with the seasons (even daily sometimes, depending on what the chefs are hauling in from the garden) but delicious dishes of world-famous Cumbrian beef and lamb are a common feature. Desserts are a big deal at The Newby Bridge Hotel and Restaurant, calling on some continental European influence for treats like sweet Belgian waffles or Italian panna cotta, an exquisite end to an exquisite meal.
Selection and quality of food was really good. Hotel and staff were excellent. Bar food menu was also excellent. Would thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone.
Excellent hotel all staff very friendly and food is very good value money we had new year gala dinner dance with seven course dinner all excellent. Well recommend

The staff at the Newby Bridge were brilliant - we were a party of 8 ( 4 kids and a dog) ! They moved the seating for us out the back in the garden as it was a glorious day - nothing was too much trouble . The food was lovely , all the staff were really friendly . Would highly recommend 😊
Stunning food, excellent presentation and superb customer service. Highly recommended. Service was quick and the waitress was very personable. The fish was cooked perfectly and the Italian vegetarian option was beautiful, served in a 'bowl' made purely from melted Parmesan. Amazing.
Pleasant hotel which is very dog friendly. Pool sauna and jacuzzi very welcome and 'gym' useful though cramped. Food fine though as we were eating in the bar area (with dog) didn't experience the dining room. Good range of wines and beers.
The Huntsman's bar offered traditional pub grub in a slightly tired setting. The main course gammon was fine. However the pudding choice was poor - only 3 and the strawberries and cream was appalling value for £5.95 it consisted of 2 spoons of cream and about 2 small strawberries diced up.
Snug bar for drinks and a good menu in the restaurant with the desserts a highlight - wines are well priced and the service very friendly and overall a good evening out (well in as we were staying there too!)
Great food, lovely surprising starter that was very tasty. Carvery, meats succulent and cooked well. Only 4 choices of veggies, would have preferred a greater selection. Very helpful and friendly staff. Would return again for Sunday carvery
