The Lakeside sits, as you might expect, on the southern shore of Lake Windermere, surrounded by wooded slopes. It began as a coaching inn in the 17th century, and is now a substantial building, with a lakeside terrace, spa and pool and a brasserie named after John Ruskin, as well as the Lakeview restaurant. Menu descriptions keep things simple for Lancashire soufflé and tomato jam, or ham hock terrine with brioche and pickles, among starters. Then comes Herdwick lamb shoulder with peas, mint and chilli, or whole lemon sole with watercress and lemon. Inspired desserts include passionfruit cheesecake with lime ice cream and goats' curd.
