Food & Drink

We appreciate that your breakfast experience is really important and in 2009 we achieved the coveted Breakfast award to accompany our 4 star grading from our Visit England inspector.  The Breakfast Award recognises our use of fresh local produce, our menu range and quality, along with our ability to get it perfectly onto your plate.

Homemade black pudding produced by Claytons in Windermere, is delicious alongside your egg & bacon.  We also offer kipper fillets, fruits & yoghurt along with a continental style breakfast for those with a lighter appetite.  We always keep a selection of vegetarian and gluten free foods in stock and if you have any other special food choices please do let us know.

Packed lunches - £7.00 per person

Our packed lunches are very popular with our guests and can be ordered the night before.  Your choice of sandwich fillings - subject to availability - a slice of our homemade gingerbread, a selection of fruit and a biscuit will see you through the day.  Don't forget to bring your own flask which we'll be happy to fill for you.

Evening Meals 

Ambleside has lots of great places to eat, catering for all tastes and budgets and therefore we no longer offer evening meals.  

However, we are aware that it can be difficult for a group sometimes to find a satisfactory venue to accommodate we can still take bookings for groups of 6 or more. by prior arrangement.  (Please note, we do not serve evening meals on Sundays)

Our 3 course evening meals are homemade and freshly prepared, and use seasonal local ingredients wherever possible.
