Beresford's is a new look to an old Lake District favourite. Run by the same people, Beresford's takes the place of Messinas Restaurant but expands on the successful format to include a separate pub. Located in the heart of the Lake District at Bowness-on-Windermere, just a short walk from windermere lake and it’s many attractions including The World of Beatrix Potter. Ideal for a meal before a visit to the cinema or the Lake.

Our Lake District restaurant has a large dining area decorated in a modern style and serves a range of contemporary European dishes cooked to perfection and complimented by a vast range of wines.


Indulge yourself with our fresh Salmon fillet and a glass of chilled Chardonnay or something a little more locally sourced - Cumbrian Lamb or Beef fillet fresh from the Lakeland hills served with a room temperature Merlot.

Our menu is constantly changing to make the best of seasonal and local produce, but take a look at a sample menu by clicking the link on the left.

There is also an outdoor patio, perfect for those stunning Lake District summer days or warm evening nights.
