Our Food

We believe in celebrating the region you live in and embracing all that is special and unique about the area. Food heroes like the local farmer, fisherman and butcher are the key to our homegrown and local philosophy.

At Merewood, you can enjoy the very best local produce the Lake District has to offer from tender Herdwick lamb and spicy Cumberland sausage to freshly caught trout and Morecambe Bay potted shrimps, local asparagus and Cumbrian cheeses and chutneys.

Dining at Merewood is an experience not to be missed. Under the creative and experienced direction of head chef Carl Semple, and made with only the finest local and seasonal ingredients, you’ll discover a menu of imaginative and freshly prepared food. From simple classics to more contemporary combinations…you’ll be spoilt for choice. Our chefs make everything fresh on the premises, from the rustic bread to the handmade after-dinner petit fours.

Merewood has two beautiful dining rooms. The Grill delivers fantastic food with friendly service and is for guests who are seeking an informal, relaxed style of dining. Whist Arboreal is for diners who desire a gourmet experience.  Chef Carl Semple has designed a seven-course taster menu that aims to indulge the taste buds and senses.   

Come and enjoy tasty breakfasts, delicious lunches, yummy afternoon teas and mouth-watering dinners. We are happy to cater for any special dietary requirements, just let us know. And you don't have to be staying with us to reserve a table in our restaurant...everyone is welcome.

In recognition of our food Merewood has been awarded two AA Rosettes for Culinary Excellence. The AA Rosette scheme is long established and successfully recognises cooking at different levels nationwide.

Fancy a tipple?

Once you've freshened up for dinner after a great day out in the Lake District, come and join us for a drink in our stunning Edwardian Conservatory Bar. The bar is very much in keeping with the boutique hotel feel of Merewood and has some gorgeous features like mosaic tile flooring, Art Deco lamps and some of the best views of Lake Windermere you'll find in any Lake District hotel.

Sit back and enjoy a tumbler of malt whisky, a glass of fine wine or vintage port.....or maybe you're celebrating and want to pop the cork and enjoy a glass of bubbly. We've got an extensive drinks menu to choose from so whatever your tipple, you're sure to find something that takes you're fancy!

The bar has a welcoming and intimate atmosphere and is conducive to whiling away the hours with friends and family. And in winter there could be no better place to be than sat in a comfy leather settee in front of the roaring log fire, glass in hand with good company and a bit of banter.
