The latest food and drink news

Here at our bed and breakfast in the Lake District we like to promote the exciting food and drink scene  here in the Lake District. A great reason why you should come and visit us.

Such as

  • Don’t want to brag…. but unlike Manchester we have 3 Michelin restaurants- Gilpin, Samlin and L’Enclume
  • Want quality first class food but maybe not the formality (or expense) of a Michelin restaurant- James Cross’s who trained at Noma Lake Road Kitchen  is really worth a visit in Ambleside

    Lakes Kitchen in Ambleside
  • A People Cafe in Kendal where local businesses donate food that is then cooked every Saturday by the community for the community 
  • In the town of Windermere, two excellent cafe cum places for very individual home cooking for your lunch- Home Ground that is multi award winning but maybe slightly in their shadow is Just Good Food with take away home made lunches such as slow cooked brisket, pulled pork and mushroom, butter quash curry or chick pea rogan josh
  • A new craft gin company in Ulverston called Shed Gin distilled, yes in a garden shed! Interesting varieties such as Cuckold’s Revenge from citrus, cardamom and nutmeg or Fancy a Frolic with lime, ginger and strawberries or how about the
    Crafty Baa and over 100 different beers
