Lovelady Shield Country House Hotel - Alston

Lovelady Lane, Alston, Cumbria, CA9 3LX
Find this good restaurant in this comfortable hotel, which was originally a 13th century convent. It's beautifully-set on the banks of the River Nent.

Local, seasonal, produce is used to create modern dishes with Mediterranean influences, and these are cooked to a high standard.

A Spring snapshot brought 'Riccota Cheese & Mixed Mushroom Lasagne, Rocket & Parmesan Salad & Truffle Foam'; 'Home-Cured Wild Boar Bacon with Fried Thyme Porridge, Quail Egg & Tomato Salsa' and 'Hot-Smoked Eel with Warm Potato & Caper Salad, Beetroot & Walnut Dressing' amongst the starters.

Perhaps 'Beef Trio - rare roasted rump pavé, slow braised feather, cottage pie - with Horseradish Mousse & Red Cabbage Purée'; 'Grilled Crown of Spring Chicken with Soy & Lime Dressing, Lemon & Honey Spring Roll, Soft Boiled Rice & Vegetable Timbale'; 'Seared Peppered Tuna with a Confit Provencal Vegetables & Wilted Baby Spinach' and 'Crispy Polenta Cake with Tomato Fondant, Char-Grilled Asparagus, Soft Poached Egg & Balsamic Drizzle' to follow.

Finish with 'White Chocolate & Passion Fruit Marquise with Milk Chocolate Fritter & Passion Fruit Coulis'; 'Glazed Lemon Tart with Brown Bread Ice Cream' and 'Hot Coconut Rice Pudding with Pineapple Sorbet, Rum Syrup & Ginger Tuile'.

Cheese lovers can indudge in a selection of local varieties.
