Cedar Manor Hotel & Restaurant

Ambleside Road, WINDERMERE, LA23 1AX

2 rosettes

Built of grey stone in 1854, the manor occupies a peaceful spot in attractive gardens, complete with eponymous cedar, on the outskirts of Windermere. It's a small-scale hotel, with a modern look, while the restaurant is well appointed, with leather-look chairs at neatly set tables; well-trained but unbuttoned staff keep the ball rolling. Seasonality leads the kitchen, with its reliance on Lakeland produce, and the cooking is marked out by its technical precision and, given the quintessentially English surroundings, by its wide-ranging scope. Thus, pav? of salmon is marinated in ginger and served with robust wasabi mayonnaise, some pickled vegetables and leaves, and another starter combines the pungency of aubergine, onion and potato bhajis with mint chutney and a coriander and onion dip. Main courses are in similar vein - Moroccan lamb tagine with herby couscous, for instance - although pink-roast duck breast has appeared in autumn with seasonal fruits, saut?ed pumpkin and a perfect rendition of dauphinoise. Incidentals like breads and a complimentary soup are well reported, as are puddings such as chocolate millefeuille.
