'Stunning views, local Herdwick hogget, bold cooking – it's almost enough to make a man take up hill walking' Jay Rayner. The Observer. Sunday 21st October 2012 The restaurant provides breathtaking views of the mighty Skiddaw mountain range and the surrounding forest.
The area provides a rich larder; Herdwick Hogget from the surrounding fells, freshly landed fish and shellfish from Whitehaven harbour and a host of wild foods. The quality of the food and wine has won several regional and national awards and gained recognition in the leading guides.
Head chef Chris Archer has been passionate about cooking since childhood. Aged fourteen, his school work experience was at the Michelin starred Vinyard at Stockcross with head chef John Campbell. His apprenticeship under Chef Germaine Schwab at Wintergham Fields instilled into him traditional techniques and methods. Chris is nonetheless receptive to new trends and whilst keeping his nose to the grindstone, always has an eye on the horizon.
