Dining by the Lakeside

Fine dining at its best and with local ingredients

Lakeside offers great dining choice.
The Lakeview Restaurant & Conservatory, plus our John Ruskin Brasserie & Bar, ensure the best experience, space & hospitality.


Dinner is the highlight of any stay here at Lakeside, with superb dining choice plus our conservatory and terrace dining throughout the day.

Our Head Chef is passionate about sourcing Cumbria’s freshest seasonal produce and letting the flavours speak for themselves. All diets are catered for, and with a little bit of advanced warning our team can be creative with your needs.


Our goal is to make the most important meal of the day – a highlight of your stay.

Breakfast is served from 8.00 -10.30am daily.
Begin with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, graze from our cold buffet and then choose from a variety of exciting breakfast dishes. (Cumberland sausage with hash brown & relish pictured here).

Afternoon Tea

Relaxing afternoons by Lake Windermere – Catching up with friends – Celebrating

Nothing works better than combining the panoramic views from Lakeside with a unique afternoon tea experience

Our Terrace & Conservatory

What better place to experience al fresco dining when the weather allows.

If you love the view but would rather sit inside, our beautiful conservatory provides a safe haven whatever the weather. With stunning views across the lake and onto Gummer’s How and neighbouring hills, you won’t tire of people watching.

Relax with a light lunch or cream tea.


Lakeside Restaurant

Every meal feels like a special occasion…

Candlelight, fresh flowers and fine wines set the mood for a delicious dining experience every evening.

Our classic Grill Restaurant serves steaks cooked on a charcoal barbecue in a sealed chamber; this gives it a unique flavour and retains the moisture. Rare breed steaks are served 7 nights a week.

Relax and enjoy dinner by the Lake.
