Macdonald Leeming House


2 rosettes

An impressive-looking property with direct access to Ullswater. For full-on Lakeland dining, head for the elegant Regency Restaurant, where floor-to-ceiling windows give views to the lake and fells. Pressed confit duck legis are partnered by poached plums and red wine syrup, and smoked salmon terrine by herby lemon butter, pink peppercorns and fennel salad. Dishes are well executed and attractively presented, seen in main courses of flavoursome slices of roast loin of Highland lamb with rösti, carrot purée, crushed peas and rosemary jus, and baked plaice fillets with sauté potatoes, broccoli and béarnaise. End on an international note with lemongrass pannacotta with mango milkshake.
