Restaurants come and go but our focus on quality and customer service has set us aside from many other Lake District Restaurants for the past 21 years. Whether popping in for a snack at lunch, indulging in our unique Sunday lunch experience or a full four course meal in the evening, The Lamplighter restaurant offers a great selection of locally sourced and themed food and drinks.

The Lamplighter bar offers a wonderful atmosphere and a great range of drinks to suit all tastes. We’re perfectly situated in the heart of Windermere, as well as being the closest bar to the main train station, so you don’t have to worry about staying for another. We offer an excellent selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, from premium lagers and locally brewed ales, through to premium spirits and an extensive wine list.
