Join us for lunch, dinner or afternoon tea and enjoy an inspired menu using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Our food is smart but unfussy and is contemporary cooking at its finest. Our restaurant is welcoming and informal and the sort of place where you can enjoy an intimate romantic meal for two or a relaxed lunch or supper with friends. The dining room has views over the lake and gardens or for a cosy evening by the fire you can relax in our well-stocked bar. To accompany our menus, we have a wide range of quality wines, a comprehensive selection of Gins and Whisky’s some of which are locally produced in the Lake District and not forgetting our thirst quenching ales from local breweries on draught.

You can also enjoy brunch, lunch and evening meals in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, just a few minute walk from the hotel in Elterwater at our casual eatery, Slates Coffee & Kitchen. For our current opening times please click here.

Afternoon tea is served in the Garden and courtyard in warmer weather or in the dining room or bar during the cooler months. Non residents and well behaved canines are always welcome. We can also cater for private functions and events, creating an intimate dinner party environment for your guests.
