Imaginative modern cooking by the shining expanse of Windermere

Formerly known as Fayrer Garden, The Rybeck is an appealingly isolated country house overlooking the shining expanse of Windermere. The informal conservatory dining room serves up a delicious view and a modern British menu that shows off the technical skills of the team in the kitchen. 'Tuna on a rock' reveals an understanding of Asian flavours with the shiitaki parfait matched with kombu, kimchi and wasabi, while another starter brings together the flavours of liquorice and mandarin to perk up a pan-roasted pigeon breast. Move on to turbot with more of that Asian influence, or Cumbrian pork belly with sticky cheek and rainbow chard.
