"Quince and Medlar is our favourite vegetarian restaurant, it occupies the ground floor of a Georgian-listed property with many original features. Simple but stylish surroundings make dining a pleasure and a carefully prepared and creatively presented, most imaginative mouth-watering selection of food is served in the wood panelled candle-lit dining room. We were welcomed at the door and shown to a lounge with wooden floor, wine-coloured walls, and artists' pictures hung alongside the restaurant's many awards.

Cozy sofas and chairs, plus small tables some with the "Taste" and "Fine Food" magazines to browse. We were surprised with some delightful hors-d'ouvres brought to our table to nibble while waiting for our dining table. Most of the choices on the menu can be served as a vegan option .Choose with difficulty from five or six starters then seven or eight main course dishes. I liked the "Caramelized red onion and local Allerdale goats cheese tart", and chose for maincourse "Celeraic, apple,and local blue cheese baked with creme fraich and toasted hazelnuts". There was a special sweet for that evening of deep, light, lemon cheescake with fresh raspberry coulis garnished with fresh fruit.

Organic wine and beer plus interesting fruit drinks are available from the bar, and there is a cozy sitting room with relaxing music for you to sip your aperitife while mulling over the menu or after dinner coffee, with home made chocolates. Stephane Grapelli was playing on our night. If you go for the irresistible sweet menu (or cheesboard ) too, the meals cost approximately £26 plus of course the wine etc. Quince and Medlar is no stranger to accolades and has won many prestigious awards since 1986, twice U.K. winners of the Vegetarian Restaurant of the year award and three times runner up. It's advisable to book ahead as the restaurant only seats 20. Open Tuesday-Saturday from 7 PM."
