Holbeck Ghyll Hotel

Holbeck Lane, Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 1LU
An excellent restaurant/hotel situated in a 19th century stone-built house, which was formerly a hunting lodge, there are splendid views overlooking Lake Windermere.

Expect the likes of 'Scallops with Celeriac and Balsamic dressing'; 'Rabbit Rillettes on Crostini, with Truffle Vinaigrette, Anchovies and Green Beans'; Salt Cod Pannacotta with Pickled Vegetables & Salmon Beignets'; 'Boudin Blanc with Sautéed Langoustines & Chorizo Foam' or 'Ravioli of Veal Sweetbreads with Asparagus and Morels' among the starters.

'Loin of Venison with a Juniper-flavoured jus'; 'Crisp-skinned Roast Sea Bass with Aubergine 'Caviar' and Red Pesto'; 'Poulet de Bresse with Truffled Risotto & Cep Purée'; 'Roasted Brill with Apple, Potato, Celery & Cider Foam' or 'Roast Squab Pigeon with Cabbage Confit and Madeira Sauce'.

To finish, perhaps 'Date Pudding with Caramel Sauce'; 'Crème Brulée with Apple Sorbet and a Cider Sauce'; 'Assiette of Lemon' or a 'Pear and Praline Parfait with Nougat Glacé'. There are also British and French cheeses in peak condition. Service is helpful, friendly and professional.

Vegetarians have their own men, and a lighter menu is also available.
