The Rosette award for this establishment has been suspended due to a change of chef. Reassessment will take place in due course under the new chef. In a county hardly short of lovely country-house hotels, Linthwaite has plenty of distinctive appeal. This large white house sits on a rise overlooking Lake Windermere and has immaculate gardens and soothing views, while the interior is decorated in refined style. The dining room is neatly divided into three separate areas done in varying levels of formality, with brightly patterned seating and a light and airy feel. Confident and efficient staff deliver high-achieving contemporary dishes, which mix and match global influences in elegant presentations. First up might be an al dente egg yolk raviolo with truffled ceps, hazelnuts and rosemary, while earthy garnishes of pickled onion and walnuts add depth to a terrine of chicken and roasted garlic. At main, there could be an exotically aromatic way with crackled pork jowl, which arrives with vanilla mash and subtle notes of star anise and cinnamon. Indian-spiced halibut with sweet potato and red lentils is perfectly timed, gaining edge from its coconut, coriander and lime gel accompaniments. Desserts too are sensuously scented, as for lemon posset with Turkish Delight ice cream and Parma violet meringues, while the richness of caramel cheesecake and honeycomb is offset by the sharpening effect of banana and lime ice cream.
