Rampsbeck Country House Hotel

Watermillock, Watermillock, Cumbria, CA11 0LP
Find this destination restaurant/hotel set in a 18th century manor house high above Ullswater.

Chef Andrew McGeorge offers a seasonally-changing menu with bold and robust flavours, often including luxury ingredients - while the candle lit dining room makes the ideal setting for a special occasion.

You can enjoy a pre-prandial drink in the comfortable lounge bar while perusing the menu - barring in mind there's no choice at soup-stage. These are served in tiny cups - with likes of 'Cauliflower with Truffle Oil' and 'Cream of Jerusalem Artichokes' possibilities.

Starters such as 'Pan-fried diver Scallops with Water Chestnuts, Courgettes, Bean Sprouts & Soy Dressing'; 'Braised & Roast Pig's Cheek with Caramelised Mango'; 'Assiette of Foie Gras with Balsamic Dressing' and 'Brandade of Cod with Sakura Cress, Curry Oil & Toasted Almonds' set the kitchens style.

Dishes such as 'Pan fried Calves Liver with Rosti, Curried Creamed Savoy Cabbage & Caraway Seed Jus'; 'Roasted Squab Pigeon with Sarladaise Potatoes, Lentil & Foie Gras Kromeskies, Button Onions & Thyme Jus'; 'Roasted Rack of Lamb with Roasted Root Vegetables, Brochette of Lamb Offal, Confit Potatoes & Jus' and 'Pan-fried Fillet of Turbot with Langoustine Tortellini, Roasted Langoustine, Caramelised Apple & Cider Emulsion' might follow.

For those undecided about having dessert 'Bourbon Vanilla Crème Brulée, with Braised Plums & Plum Sorbet'; 'Vanilla Pannacotta with Fresh Figs & Manuka Honey' and 'Assiette of Chocolate - chocolate macaroon with ganache; chocolate mousse; chocolate tart; chocolate sorbet and chocolate marble ice cream' could tempt you.

If you plan ahead, you can stay in one of their comfortable bedrooms.
