Waterhead Hotel

Lake Road, AMBLESIDE, LA22 0ER

1 rosettes

The poems and paintings of Tennyson and Turner have immortalised the splendid Lakeland landscapes framing Windermere, and the Waterhead has a ringside seat to take it all in, just a short stroll from the bustle of Ambleside. The view from the Bar and Grill restaurant is timeless, but the venue itself sports a thoroughly modern boutique look with funky purple LED lighting to go with its up-to-date brasserie dishes. Start with duck liver parfait with red onion jelly and toasted treacle and walnut bread. Follow with pan-fried tuna steak with fondant potatoes, seasonal veggies and b?arnaise sauce, or look to the grill for slabs of Cumbrian beef, or a trendy burger of pulled pork shoulder with honey and bourbon barbecue sauce, sweet potato wedges and crispy fried onions. Coconut and raspberry pannacotta with shaved coconut and raspberry pur?e is a good way to finish.
