Square Meal Review of Lucy’s on a Plate ?

Lucy’s has been around, in one form or another for 20-odd years, & now offers the delightful deli, the main restaurant, bistro & cooking courses. Found on a quiet side-street in tourist-heavy Ambleside, the main eatery charms in a quirky 80s sort of way: twinkly lights and candles offsetting bare boards and junk-shop furniture. Food is rustic and tasty. ‘McGinty’s slice’ involves a circle of savoury dough bread with sundried tomatoes, olives and herbs, grilled with goat’s cheese and balsamic syrup, or dive into ‘SS terrine’ (salmon and scallops combined, served with mixed leaves). Mains are substantial – and the puns worse: ‘seventies chick’ is chicken supreme wrapped in bacon, with sauteed potatoes, spinach & wild mushroom sauce, while ‘lamb rumpy pumpy’ delivers Lakeland lamb with sweet potato mash, Jerusalem artichokes and rosemary jus. Lucy’s has also built a reputation on the pudding front with over 30 chalked up on a board, all made in house: clotted cream rice pudding, Westmorland toffee apple crumble or Jamie’s wicked chocolate tart (yep, a pukka recipe donated by the great geezer himself).
