  • Zeffirelli's is a fantastic venue for those wanting to see films in the central Lakes area. The cinemas are quite small, but this doesn't bother us. Comfortable seating and nice ambience as both Zeff'...  more »

  • Four of us went to the cinema (Dunkirk) and then had an evening meal at this vegetarian restaurant. We shared a bread and olive starter. Then each had a main. I recommend the spicy bean and veg with rice. We each had a dessert, all tasty and well presented. Added to this was wine and water. Total bill £30 per person. The service was friendly and efficient. This restaurant is busy but comfortable. One of the best restaurant experiences we have had in ages. That's saying a lot from devout meat lovers! We look forward to visiting again when next in the area.
  • Came hear to go to the cinema only. So I can't vouch for the food. Booking in person can only be made 20 minutes before the film starts. Not a problem on a quiet Thursday at 2pm but have heard there can be big queues at peak times. Sweet popcorn was good and had a good selection of Clipper herbal teas. Other sweets and drinks available too and to bring into the screen. We were in screen 1. Seats were comfortable with decent legroom. To be level with the screen height you would have to sit at the back so most seats require looking up at the screen. There is a stage in front so you're not craning your neck. For the price and screen size, I thought it was just right and had a good time on a rainy day.
  • Great food and great atmosphere. I'm not a veggie but still loved the food and didn't miss not eating meat. Staff friendly and attentive. Plus very good wine list. Cinema is here too. So great for date night.
  • Welcoming, restful atmosphere, comprehensive but not complicated vegetarian menu. Excellent quality at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit if your in the north lakes.
  • This is a great place for for, especially if vegetarian. I'm not a vegetarian and I never feel stuck for choice when I eat here. It's a really nice place to sit and enjoy your meal. The staff are very polite and welcoming. I never used the toilets but my partner had nothing bad to report. There's nothing I don't like about Zeffs.
