Modern cooking on the shore of Ullswater

Private dining

Wheelchair access
Service charge

In 15 acres of grounds surrounding Ullswater, this hotel's main culinary action takes place in its Lake View Restaurant, the elegant dining room decorated with shades of lilac and fawn. The kitchen makes good use of regional ingredients to produce dishes of modernity and creativity. First course seared king scallops, for example (cooked just right), arrive in the company of textures of cauliflower and black pudding fritter, dressed with a pancetta foam, and there's an Asian spin to a main course of cured salmon with crispy salt and pepper squid and Thai broth. Desserts run to the likes of dark chocolate delice or a tarte Tatin made with Cox's apples.
