The Taste District

At Lake District Country Hotels 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.

We think we’re rather lucky to be based in the Lake District as we have easy access to some of the best produce to be found anywhere in the UK – this cuts down on our food miles too, so we’re doing our little bit for the environment.

The Lake District has a great food and drink heritage and is home to mouth-watering specialities such as Herdwick lamb, Cumberland sausage, potted shrimps, sticky toffee pudding, Lyth Valley damsons and Grasmere gingerbread.

The chefs at each of our Lake District hotels always try to use local and seasonal produce when creating our delicious menus so you can be sure of a real taste of the Lakes when you eat with us. Do we grow our own? Well, we have thought about having a veggie patch at our hotels, but as we have such an abundance of fabulous fruit and vegetable growers in Cumbria, we thought it would be a great thing to support our local producers. We do grow our own herbs though and we think they add that little something special to our dishes!

Whether you are joining us for Sunday lunch, afternoon tea or a romantic dinner. Or perhaps you are celebrating a wedding, a birthday or are with us on business? Whatever the occasion, you can expect inspiring menus, exceptional yet unstuffy service and a warm and welcoming atmosphere at our collection of Lake District restaurants. And, for the lucky ones who are staying with us….there’s our delicious Lakeland breakfast to look forward to each morning…a feast fit for a king.
