Our review

Lucy's on a plate provides an informal and relaxing environment, scrubbed pine tables, chapel chairs and offering a busy and bustly cafe atmosphere during the daytime with a menu to match and then a more intimate candlelit feel at night. Scaled down versions of the evening menu can be prepared to accommodate our younger guests - we are not a fast food establishment and we aim to encourage our guests to enjoy the pleasure of the company of those they are with ...

Having a variety of different dining areas means we can ensure that those with families feel comfortable and those without do not feel intruded upon in any way ... Lucy's is a place that has a motto of 'once discovered - never forgotten' ... Lucy's also operates a Wine Bar and Bistro in Ambleside - Lucy4 which is fun for families and offers an alternative style of eating - mix and match mediterranean style food.  LucyCooks is a cookery school with a variety of family fundays out allowing friends, families and young people to indulge in the pleasure of preparing and presenting good homecooked food - Lucy's of Ambleside is quite simply 'a food lover's paradise'!


Books, crayons on hand to keep little ones occupied whilst the meal is being prepared.Areas for families to be able to accommodate prams and buggies. Baby changing facilities available together with high chairs and booster seats. Private dining facilities for special occasions.
