Our menus celebrate some of the finest Lake District produce and West Coast seafood – traditional British flavors are blended in a light, imaginative way, with exquisite ingredients that speak for themselves.
Relax in the bar or on the terraces before being shown through to one of our dining rooms, each with it’s own character and style. Some guests have their special preferences, whilst others prefer a change in scenery. Every table has fresh flowers, candles at night, crisp white linen, fine china and glass, and gleaming silver. Friendly and attentive staff provide perfect service, without being pompous.
We have carefully matched wines to go with each dish,and invite you to wander into the walk-in wine cellars where you can browse over 200 wines from 13 countries. Our wine list is built on interest rather than ancient vintages at astronomic prices, and our house wines are excellent quality and value.
We are open to residents and non-residents for all meals, on every day of the year – breakfast, lunch, light lunches, morning coffee, afternoon tea, dinner… or just come in and have a look around!
Friendly and attentive staff provide perfect service, without being pompous, and tables are reserved for the entire mealtime. The lunch menus can be enjoyed in the lounge, bar or on the terraces (as can morning coffee and afternoon tea), or in the restaurant for a more formal meal. The dinner menu comprises 5 courses and canapés (£58.00, or £62.50 with coffee and petits fours). Unless a menu has been pre-arranged for a party, the lunch menu is à la carte or 3-courses at £30 (Sundays £35 for 3-courses). Please advise us of any dietary needs, allergies or if you would prefer plainer prepared dishes; everything can be cooked in your preferred way – all of the bar and restaurant team are always glad to offer friendly advice.
Please do advise us of any dietary needs, allergies or if you would prefer dishes prepared more plainly. We welcome children over the age of seven.
Perhaps bring family or colleagues for a celebration?
We have private dining rooms which seat either twelve, twenty or twenty-six people, and will happily devise personalised menus – for lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, even breakfast! We are happy to take orders on the day for up to ten in a party, for up to fifteen people we do ask guests to pre-order, and for parties of over sixteen people our chef will create a bespoke set menu for you.
For guests booking the Lake House for exclusive use, the chef will create a bespoke set menu for your party (up to 26 people).
Dining at Gilpin over Christmas and New Year
We are of course also open to non-residents for all meals, including The Christmas Day Feast, Boxing Day lunch, and our New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner, with live music in the Champagne Bar afterwards.
