Restaurants in the Lake District

The Lake District has a disproportionately large number of high quality restaurants to its population. Obviously this situation has arisen to cater for the large numbers of visitors that this beautiful region receives every year. It is important that you, the visitor, knows where to find these temples to fine cuisine so we have listed some of the most popular here.

Crosby Lodge, Carlisle. A hotel with a restaurant which claims a deserved reputation for fine food. Located just to the north of Carlisle, Crosby Lodge is richly furnished with excellent period furniture and claims to offer the best Chateaubriand in Cumbria. Deserts are equally impressive so don't pass up the sweet trolley!

Kwelas, Windermere. For something different why not give Kwelas a try? Run by a South African and a Cumbrian, Kwelas offers a taste of Africa in the heart of English Lakeland. An excellent, and complementary, atmosphere pervades the restaurant and may encourage you to try something completely different from this unique restaurant.

Glass House Restaurant, Ambleside. The Glass House is in a converted 15th Century mill next to one of Cumbria's most photographed landmarks - Bridge House. However, the restaurant achieved publicity when it was featured in Channel Four's restaurant makeover show starring Gordon Ramsay. The result was a new lease of life for the Glass House.

Overwater Hall, Ireby. Close to the North Lakes, Overwater Hall claim a tempting menu put together with a special passion using local ingredients when possible. The hotel prides itself on excellent service and when combined with the special location they surely have a winning combination.

Fayrer Garden House Hotel, Bowness-on-Windermere. The hotel boasts two AA rosettes and the views from the restaurant are nothing short of stunning. The food is heavily influenced by local produce and is accompanied by an extensive wine list.

Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel, Howtown. One of Cumbria's most famed restaurants, Sharrow Bay serves English and French style food sometimes simply and sometimes more extravagantly. Afternoon tea is excellent and the wine list provides a wide choice (even by the glass).

Dale Head Hall Lakeside Hotel, Thirlmere. Located next to Thirlmere this hotel was once owned by the Mayor of Manchester (Thirlmere supplies water to the city). With 2 AA rosettes for its cuisine and service, the restaurant bases its theme on local produce.

Leathes Head, Borrowdale. An Edwardian house restaurant in the beautiful Borrowdale valley which currently possesses an AA rosette.

Wordsworth Hotel, Grasmere. In the centre of Grasmere the Wordsworth has both a bar menu as well as the Prelude Restaurant serving British and French cuisine.

Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel, Windermere. One of the few Michelin star rated hotels in the county, Holbeck Ghyll claims fantastic vistas from its hotel. The meni typifies an English country houe hotel with loin of Venison, and roast Partridge amongst the menu.

Miller Howe, Windermere. Originally created by John Tovey who is still retained as a consultant, Miller Howe is a gastronomer's delight offering both a set menu and an a la carte. The AA describes dining at Miller Howe as a theatrical operation with a strong sense of occassion

Jericho's, Windermere. An innovative menu which has earned this restaurant 2 AA rosettes. The restaurant has created an interesting atmosphere with jazz acting as a background to the proceedings. Food is predominantly British and Mediterranean in style.

Sawrey House Country Hotel, Sawrey. With stunning views of Esthwaite Water and Grizedale Forest Sawrey House is in an excellent position close to Hilltop Farm - Beatrix Potter's home. Food incorporates local ingredients to produce a modern British and European style of cooking.
