2. The Forest Side British, Modern restaurant in Grasmere
“Every course leaves you wanting more… even though you knew you shouldn’t as there are so many more to come”, according to fans of ex-L’Enclume chef Kevin Tickle’s “sublime” cuisine at Andrew Wildsmith’s swish three-year-old hotel: a “delightful” venue, in beautiful Lakeland setting, just outside Grasmere. The “quirky and interesting set of menus” are “well-realised and quite fun as well”, featuring “seasonal food that’s either from the garden, local suppliers or foraged”. It’s not utterly beyond criticism, though. Even fans concede it’s “costly” and criticisms include its “manicured style of cooking (I pity the sous chefs with tweezers)” and service that “leaves you feeling a bit giddy with so much coming and going”.
3. Old Stamp House British, Modern restaurant in Ambleside Church St - LA22
“An outstanding meal showcasing the very best Cumbrian ingredients can offer” is to be found at Ryan Blackburn’s “quirky, small and friendly” operation, which occupies an old cellar with “modern décor” and thick, painted stone walls in the town centre. Choose from the à la carte, or there’s a seven-course tasting menu for £70.
