Lake District Treasure

Should you ever want to leave your luxury cottage in the Lake District, here are a few eateries that are sure to impress. Eating out is a delight in the Lake District, great pub grub, healthy heavens and high-end restaurants are all commonplace. Here’s a section of foodie places, well known for their high standards and outstanding quality.

L’Enclume is a two star Michelin restaurant in Cartmel. The restaurant is famous for both its amazing food and also its laidback ambiance. You wouldn’t feel out of place in jeans and t-shirt, nor in something smarter. The food is a celebration of Cumbrian produce from both land and from the sea – a gastronomes paradise.

Chocobar is based in Bowness-on-Windermere and as the name would suggest deals in all things sweet and chocolatey. Enjoy a latte or a hot chocolate and a sticky bun or a waffle while you read the rave reviews Chocobar has been receiving online and in print.

Ambleside is home to Fellini’s, a vegetarian restaurant with an excellent reputation. Besides veggie starters, mains and desserts, you can also choose from vegan and gluten free dishes, all with a Mediterranean twist. When you have finished eating why not check out the art-house cinema just above the restaurant?
