Dining at The Lamplighter

Quality Dining in the Lake District

Food and beverage is our absolute pleasure and we will only serve to you the very best of what we have experienced during our many years in the hospitality industry. We are a traditional British restaurant, specialising in locally sourced meat and fresh fish from Fleetwood. An absolute must is our critically acclaimed Sunday Lunch, reviewed by The Guardians Jay Rayner (“a nostalgic sort of happiness”).  We are also one of very few restaurants in Bowness & Windermere that will accept larger tables of guests and offer private dining options for Birthdays, Weddings, and all other special occasions.

The Best Sunday Lunch - Windermere

At the Lamplighter, we feel that the British Sunday lunch is the very heart of British family life and to which everyone has an emotional connection. It is the time for families & friends to get together and share great food, wine, conversation & memories.

Our Sunday Lunch menu offers the best cuts of meat the are has to offer and we serve this to you in the traditional style of the ‘Great British Sunday Lunch – family style’.

Bookings are required by 6pm on Friday, at which time you will also need to place your order for the meat to be served. Please note: On the day, it is imperative that you arrive on time, as the cuts of meat need to be prepared and cooked in advance, and timing is essential. If you have any family favourites, please do not hesitate to ask and we will do everything possible to accommodate your request.

“… there is a nostalgic sort of happiness, for this is a Sunday lunch of the sort people of my age claim to remember from childhood, but which I suspect rarely existed. It is not elegant. It is not inventive. It is so much better than that.”
