Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa

23 Church Street, Bowness, WINDERMERE, LA23 3DF

1 rosettes

Standing right on the shore of England's largest lake, this Windermere hotel and spa offers superb views across the water towards the fells, particularly through the restaurant's floor-to-ceiling windows and terrace. The menu has broad appeal, from steaks cooked on the grill, through to some gently contemporary dishes based on top quality regional ingredients. You might, perhaps, start with hand-dived scallops served with cauliflower purée. Roast lamb rump, pea purée, potato gratin, Chantenay carrots and rosemary jus is a typical main course. For dessert, coconut pannacotta, pineapple, lime, rum and ginger beer sorbet provides a tropical end to a meal.
