Find this restaurant in this comfortable family-run hotel. Unlike many hotels (not listed here) the restaurant is worth visiting in its own right - and certainly one of the best places to eat in the area.
The conservatory dining room overlooks the garden running down to the River Rothay.
The kitchen offers a table d'hote menu, but you can choose how many courses you'd like - depending on your appetite.
Dinner begins with a Soup - 'Roast Vine Tomato & Basil' on a recent menu. Perhaps followed by the likes of 'Open Ravioli of Wild Mushrooms with a Cappuccino of Parmesan, Pickled Mushrooms & Chervil Oil'; 'Goosnargh Corn Fed Duck - parfait of livers, confit leg roulade & Duck crisp - with Pear Chutney'; 'Eyemouth Crab with Jellied Crab Essence & Watercress Vichysoisse' and 'Pan-Roast Orkney Scallops with Romesco Crumb, Piquillo Pepper Salsa, Cumbrian Ham & Olive Oil Foam'.
Typical mains might be 'John Dory with Parmesan Gnocchi, Mussel Beignets, Scallops, Baby Onions & a Shellfish Emulsion'; 'Duo of Keswick Lamb - rost rump & rolled belly ballontine - with Pommes Boulanger, Spinach, Swede Purée. Minted Peas & a Lamb & Rosemary Reduction'; 'Red-Legged Partridge - roast crown, braised leg & thigh roulade - with Gratin Dauphinoise, Pearl Barley, Choucroute, Wild Mushrooms & Game Jus' and 'Pan-Seared Dry-Aged Sirloin Steak with Triple-Cooked Hand-Cut Chips, Grilled Field Mushrooms, Confit Shallots, & Béarnaise Sauce'.
If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate, Caramel Foam & Coffee Crumb'; 'Plum Cake with Blackberry Sorbet' or their selection of Cumbrian Cheeses.
No mobile phone in the dining room.

What did you like about the Restaurant?
The fig tartin with star anise ice cream was a joyful triumph. The service was friendly, humorous and warm. a marvellous dinner. highly recommended and by someone who eats in London, this was as good as some of the best London restaurants.
