Unfussy but imaginative country-house cooking

Enjoying an enviable position near Bassenthwaite Lake, this country-house hotel has plenty going on, including a bar and bistro in the former stables. The Coach House restaurant is smartly turned out and the team in the kitchen takes quality regional ingredients and doesn't muck about with them too much. Start with a twice-baked Appleby cheese soufflé, glazed with parmesan before moving on to roast Cumbrian pork belly, fondant potato, braised red cabbage, apple sauce and red wine jus. Warm pear and almond tart with toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream is a fine way to round off a meal.
