Queens Head Hotel Troutbeck

Townhead, Nr Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 1PW
Sitting high over Lake Windemere and dating back almost 400 years, this former coaching inn is now a gastro pub with comfortable bedrooms - many overlooking the Troutbeck Valley, towards the lake.

Expect cosy bars with slate floors, wooden beams and seasonal log fires, along with the Four Poster Bar - make for a romantic setting. While lunch also offers lighter bar items, such as full baguettes. The full menu offers, often locally-sourced, ingredients imaginatively and carefully cooked.

'Griddled home-made Crumpet, topped with Warm Goat's Cheese, Onion Marmalade & Dressed Rocket'; Home-Made Black Pudding with mini Rosti, Crispy Pancetta, lightly-poached Hen's Egg & their own Tomato Ketchup'; 'Baked Foie Gras & Chicken Liver Parfait with Melba Toast & Onion Jam' and 'Home-made Pork Scratchings & Bramley Apple Dip' set the style for starters.

Maybe 'Bobotie (minced lamb, nibbed almonds & apricots topped with brandied egg custard)'; 'Beer-Battered Fish & Chips with Crushed Minted Peas & home-made Tartare Sauce'; 'Local Lamb Shank, Braised with Celery & Claret - with Cheesy Mash, Rosemary Jus & Confit of Garlic' and 'Sausages of the Day with Mash, Roasted Root Vegetables, Deep-Fried Crispy Onion Rings & Gravy' listed among the mains.

If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce'; 'White Chocolate Crème Brulée with Milk Chocolate Flakes' 'Raspberry & Lime Posset with Semolina Shortbread Biscuits' or their good selection of cheese.
