Faye received an award Nomination

Our boss Faye who has been at the helm of Porto for the last seven years has been shortlisted for an EVA award in the hospitality category. After two renovations a kitchen transformation and two children, we are sure she’ll take the process in her stride. We wish her lots of luck!

Restaurant Renovation Complete!

We are delighted to reopen after a crazy January. Faye and the team, along with several local tradesmen have fully refurbished the restaurant and extended the kitchen. The kitchen refurbishment will enable the Chefs to become more creative as well as bringing natural light into the main kitchen and a better extraction unit for a cooler workplace. The restaurant refurbishment has created a brighter, modern dining space, the redesign was inspired by our beautiful surroundings in the Lake District.

We went here after having it recommended to us by a few people and they were not wrong. The food was amazing! The service was also very good. Definitely worth a visit, if your looking for something special then this is the place to go.

We went in for lunch- served 12-2 – at 1.30 so we’re a bit concerned we may be rushed, but this was absolutely not the case. The staff could not have been better. Food? We started with the bread platter and mushroom soup, both of which were excellent. This was washed down with Lakes Lager which was great.

Excellent food, and you’ll be coming back for more!

We went to this restaurant for dinner on Friday night. It was really tasty and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We liked the food so much that we came back on Sunday for lunch. Yet again, the food and service did not disappoint. The chef definitely knows what he is doing!
