The View is our 1 AA Rosette restaurant which celebrates the very best of our county, from local produce to local landscapes. Surrounded by floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows with stylish décor that pays homage to our heritage; it is a chic yet relaxed space to admire the oh so spectacular scenery of the Dales and our very own lake.

Choose to breathe in the fresh Yorkshire air and enjoy the breath-taking views in our covered terrace and alfresco dining area or cosy up next to our centrepiece open fire.

Our menu makes the most of the incredible produce on our doorstep, from our Salmon Mousse Tartlet to Sous Vide Flat Iron. A true taste of  Yorkshire!

"Great friendly service and tasty food for our lunch in a lovely setting, log fire and beautiful scenic views. This was the start of a perfect weekend to celebrate a big birthday with family and friends at the Hotel"

"We stayed at the Coniston Hotel overnight so got to eat in The View restaurant for both evening meal and breakfast. Both meals were absolutely delicious and the service was exceptional. We will definitely be returning to enjoy their hospitality"

"We have just enjoyed an excellent lunch. The menu was great with reasonable prices. The food was cooked to perfection. The chef Thomas ensured my mum was given an extra treat of super mini cakes as it was her birthday. The restaurant was busy but we were well attended to by all. Overall I cannot find fault. We have visited twice before for lunch and afternoon tea. I will certainly be back."

"We ate in The View Restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was beautiful. The staff went out of their way to make our evening special. We have eaten here many times in the past and know that whatever we pick from the menu it will be delicious and this time certainly didn’t disappoint"

"My husband and I had a lovely evening meal and breakfast in the View Restaurant when we stayed at the hotel. Menu was excellent, food was superb, service was second to none- we couldn’t have wished for anything better! And the location with the view really does top it all off. We cannot wait to return again."
