Set within the heart of the Lake District and Cumbria is this newly designed hotel and Michelin starred restaurant.  The dining room has wooden floorboards, wooden table tops and appears more like a brasserie in its design than the usual, formal hotel design and this was refreshing to see.  This did also have an impact on the acoustics making me wonder how cosy the restaurant would be in the evenings but this is speculation.  In terms of the food it was unquestionably well constructed, designed and balanced giving some definite punch the air moments and it was a very pleasing menu to have, especially for the £35 per person for lunch.  The additional snacks and nibbles within the meal were enjoyable and made for an overall quality meal that is recommended.
