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 Ben Wilkinson is passionate about local produce, especially those ‘off the beaten track’ flavours the forest so obligingly yields. However, it doesn’t stop there, and if there is an intriguing ingredient from the other side of the world, then Ben will be interested.
We use local and seasonal ingredients, but we’re happy to raid the larders of other regions, particularly our northern neighbours! You can view our sample menus below. We will be pleased to amend these menus for specific diets. Please give details of your requirements when booking so that we may apply the same creativity and attention to all our dishes. It is necessary to book tables.
