    It's that time of year again!

    Our menus have just been refreshed for the busy Spring/Summer season ahead.

    Allow yourself to be tempted by our sticky, honey glazed chicken wings or herb gnocci. Or, perhaps our hearty slow roasted Cumbrian lamb shoulder is more your thing.

    For those with a sweet tooth, you'll find old favourites such as sticky toffee pudding, plus modern twists like our Lakes Whisky creme brulee.
