Lake District Food and Drinks Award
The finalist of the Cumbria’s Food and Drinks Award has just been announced. What a strong field reflecting the strength of food, drink and the enjoyment that The Lake District food has to offer.
As well as the mountains and landscape, our food culture has to be near second reason to come to The Lake District
For example, the three in the short list for Hotel Restaurant of Year all have Michelin stars- our favourite being the Hrishi at Gilpin Hotel.
And the winner was Forest Side at Grasmere a one star Michelin restaurant
In the Restaurant of the Year places like Lake Road Kitchen, Rogan and Company, The Old Stamp House are places we’re dined at and and would definitely go back
And the winner was The Old Stamp House in Ambleside- we’ve eaten there- worth a trip
We’re rooting for Home Ground our local coffee shop- amazing coffee and they know their stuff but I do have a soft spot for the Peace and Loaf Bakehouse in the Specialist Food producer. never been but it is in Barrow that never get much attention
And the winner was peace and Loaf Bakehouse in Barrow- yeah….
All these are within easy reach of our bed and breakfast in The Lake District so mix leisure, relaxation with a culinary holiday
