Our Bowness on Windermererestaurant social ethos



Why stick to the stuffy restaurant conventions of starters, mains, and desserts when you can spice up life with a socially, more exciting way of eating pacific street food?

Our flame-infused, coal fire, Pacific Rim-inspired street food is cooked using traditional robata methods. Subsequently, this gives our food a taste that can’t be faked.  And ‘once you pop’ you won’t be able to stop.

Social ethos: Our menu is designed so you can mix and match dishes to create your own meal. We all love a bit of everything and this allows just that. Pick a main, add some greens and order something sugary if you have a sweet tooth. Then go back for more if you wish. There are no conventions here that need to be followed, so feel free to be you!

Why: We believe fantastic & exotic food should be for all and not just for the heights of fine dining. We have focused on making simple, small plates that are packed full of flavours that ‘aren’t from around here’ but use local suppliers to make them. It’s an experience that suits all occasions. From a casual mid-week meal, festivities with friends & family or for when you want a relaxed date night.

They say ‘you are what you eat’, so let our food be an expression of you.
