Tucked away in the heart of the beautiful Borrowdale Valley, the Leathes Head's chef, shows real passion for locally-grown and reared produce in daily-changing menus. Ham hock terrine is pointed up with mustard mayonnaise, sherry vinegar jelly and a crispy deep-fried quail's egg, while local Herdwick hogget is showcased in a main course involving cutlets, roasted shoulder and kidney with white bean purée, fondant potato and a glossy rosemary jus. Fish-wise, there might be sea trout with smoked crushed potatoes, purple sprouting broccoli and wild garlic mayonnaise. For dessert, citrussy lemon parfait is counterpointed with the intensity of praline and caramelised popcorn.
