Great meal at the Bistro, Ford Park

The theme night was French and it lived up to expectations.

Not only was the food very special and the presentation was superb but the people there are exceptional. A real class act. Once again it was one of the best meals I've had. I know of nowhere in this area - including going to Lancaster where you can eat to this standard.

Here's the menu

All sounds like good value. Nothing there to tempt me though. No starter and only sea Bass. But I can't take lemon. No pudding - all too rich. I'm a simple old girl with simple old fashioned tastes but I'm sure they should do well with diners wanting something 'different'.

Yes Gladys, I thought the same about the Chocolate Nemisis, but when I had a taste it wasn't 'rich' in the traditional Cadbury's way - the flour free base made a lot of difference. True high quality cooking: and yes it's to be found here in Ulverston for only four pounds in a beautiful setting with great service with a genuine smile from people who know they are 'the tops' just waiting for the rest of us to open our eyes . . . and mouths.
