"eat, drink and be merry...for tomorrow, we may diet"


Our restaurant, open to non-residents, walkers and dogs, serves generous and wholesome meals using fresh local produce to combine traditional hearty dishes with modern and inventive twists. 


We have two areas in which guests may dine.  The conservatory, which boasts stunning views of Skiddaw, is a quieter setting for special occasions or just for a peaceful meal.  The bar serves the same a la carte menu as in the conservatory, but in a more relaxed and informal environment perfect for groups with young children and dogs.  Click here to find our more about bringing your dog.


We are passionate about our food and have an extensive menu available, sourced locally where possible, which changes throughout the year. All our meals are cooked from scratch in our kitchen which means we can help those who have particular dietary needs. Some of our favourite dishes include our delicious Steak and Ale Pie or the 'Melt-in-your-mouth' Slow Roast Lamb.   Check out our Menu page for our current dishesA daily specials menu is also available with a selection of dishes, created by the kitchen.  


We believe it is important for children and young people to be given the same opportunities to sample delicious meals as other guests. Therefore, our children's menu features smaller portions of the dishes on the regular menu along with a selection of dishes specially created for smaller appetites.
