Stunning lakeside setting for globally influenced cooking

Just ten minutes' walk from Bowness, this lovingly restored Windermere hotel is set in six acres of landscaped gardens. As you might expect from a hotel owned by the Laura Ashley homewear brand, the restaurant is tastefully furnished. It forms an elegant lakeside setting for a menu that fuses traditional British dishes with inspiration from further afield. Butternut squash bhaji, red lentil soup and cumin crème fraîche is a well-balanced starter and might precede roast Cartmel venison haunch, haggis ravioli, Jerusalem artichoke purée and chanterelles. Leave room for plum bavarois, crumbled amaretti, spiced baked plum and brown sugar meringue.
