“The best local ingredients are married with spices and great originality” at Hrishikesh Desai’s swish dining room – the posher of the two eating options at this plush hotel, set “in a gorgeous Lake District setting” (see also Gilpin Spice). It offers a variety of modern British menus which provide “a hint of Indian influence in some of the dishes, but the resulting food is in no way overpowering: rather it is delicate and full of wonderful flavours”. “From the moment of arrival up to the moment of departure you are cosseted in a traditional but not suffocating way – a real pleasure”.

Hrishikesh Desai’s outstanding Asian-fusion cuisine inspires extremely high ratings for the main dining room of this boutique-ified Lakeland Hotel (which occupies a Georgian-style building, dating from 1901): “spread across several rooms of the main building, it’s open for dinner only”. See also ‘Gilpin Spice’ (which actually inspired more interest this year).
