Edinburgh chef adds Lake District hotel to his collection

High-profile Edinburgh chef Mark Greenaway is to launch two new restaurants in the same Lake District hotel next month. A self-named restaurant and the more informal Brasserie Thirty Seven will open at the Haweswater Hotel, near the M6 motorway on the edge of the Lakes.

Mark is best known for Restaurant Mark Greenaway on Edinburgh’s North Castle Street, which he followed up with Grazing at the city’s Waldorf Astoria, where he took over from the Galvin brothers. Last year he opened Pivot British Bar & Bistro in Covent Garden, London.

His menus at the Haweswater will include new dishes alongside several of his signature dishes, including BBQ shiitake mushrooms on toast, 11-hour slow roast pork belly and sticky toffee pudding soufflé.

 He says, “Being part of such a historic building in the inspirational and magnificent Lake District is a chef’s dream. A stunning local larder of world class ingredients, with a sense of potential and a true home from home feel in a picturesque location. 

Our guests will experience some new and unique dishes in serene and majestic yet snug surroundings. Relaxing and accessible to all, an experience we hope they will wish to return for time and again. Our focus will be on delighting our diners with memories to cherish, a journey with splendid food, drink and hospitality in a friendly and graceful fashion”.
