Merienda

Situated just off the high street in Cockermouth this is a pleasant cafe. Not very large and the colours and furniture are basic. There is a board with an interesting range of dishes. The food was good and the service friendly. Prices reasonable.

Every time we visit Cockermouth we always head to the Castle Bar. The food is excellent and well priced. There's also a great selection of beers. The staff are absolutely excellent. It has a great beer garden to the rear which is a great wee suntrap. They also welcome well behaved dogs which means we can eat comfortably with our little dog. I would definitely recommend.

Wild Zucchinis Bistro

A quirky little place where customer service, good homemade wholesome and unpretentious food is at the forefront of the agenda. We make it our business to offer you the best we can at all times.

Reviewed By GlennA946

I decided to try Wild Zucchinis on a short trip to Cockermouth and think it's the most reasonably priced, friendliest place to eat in the town. £ 7.25 for an omelette with potatoes and three salad choices is amazing value in a place that can be expensive to eat out. Also my latte at £ 2.40 was reasonably priced. Both meal and coffee were of a high standard and the waitress and cook, who advises you on your salad choices, were very friendly.The good news doesn't stop there, though. Wild Zucchinis has a fantastic ambience with jazz playing at a discreet volume and is spotless inside. Also you have a copy of i on the table( tabloid version of The Independent), which is something interesting to read while you're waiting. Another reason to visit the restaurant is Poets Night once a month, and local community groups hold meetings at Wild Zucchins. Dogs are welcome, too.If you are driving, there is the Sainsburys car park over the road, where parking costs £ 2.60 for two hours, and there are regular buses to Workington.Awwwww thank you Glenn! Thank you for taking the time to write us such a wonderful review. We go out our way to welcome everyone in the best way we can and offering quality food is at the top of our priority alongside cleanliness and good service . Glad we hit the mark! Manon x

Quince & Medlar

Reviewed By Hils15

We were given a voucher for this restaurant as an anniversary present, so booked a night in Cockermouth and made our visit there. It is amazing! From the moment you arrive, where you are shown to a lovely little sitting area, where you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink and peruse the menus in a leisurely way, to the lovely, calm atmosphere in the dining area to the superb cuisine - the whole experience is very special. The food was served in a very attractive way and tasted absolutely delicious. The tiny buckwheat pancake, with mushrooms and a delicate salad was a great starter, whilst my husband relished the cheese souffle. We struggled to choose which main courses to have, but I opted for the spiced lentils and roots dish which was a fascinating combination of flavours and wonderfully tasty. My husband was equally pleased with his balsamic beetroot and borlotti bean filo parcels with halloumi and other extras. The dishes were light but quite filling, but we decided we just had to find room for desserts, and were so glad we did. I absolutely loved the summer pudding - which looked and tasted outstanding - and i enjoyed a taste of my other half's passionfruit panna cotta! We returned to the cosy and attractive sitting room to enjoy coffee and fanstastic chocolates. There was an interesting wine list - we opted for a very good Fairtrade chenin blanc. It was lovely to get the chance to talk to talk to Louisa at the end of the evening and to learn about the way they had combined two houses to create such a lovely restaurant. This really is a superb restaurant and deserves its excellent reputation. I wish we lived nearer - but hopefully we will be back before too long!
