Scafell Hotel

ROSTHWAITE, Borrowdale, CA12 5XB

1 rosettes

Surrounded by peaks and the lush greenery of the Borrowdale Valley, the Scafell Hotel is ideal for those seeking time in the great outdoors. The Riverside Bar and lounge bar offer informal dining, with the main restaurant a more formal option. Salmon is cured in-house and matched with avocado and tomato salsa, while another starter sees flaked crab with linguine given a nicely judged hit of chilli. Main-course herb-crusted shoulder and noisette of lamb is partnered with Thai-style vegetables, and pan-roasted monkish comes in a Mediterranean-style combination of confit plum tomatoes, red peppers and red onions. Finish with a light and fluffy mousse of chocolate, Tia Maria and mocha.
