With a fascinating history as a centre of the spice trade, Cumbrian cuisine has a rich heritage, and local specialities have long included exotic spices with favourites such as Cumberland sausage, potted shrimps, Grasmere gingerbread, and of course, sticky toffee pudding. At Gilpin there are two restaurants celebrating this tradition.
The laid-back ‘Gilpin Spice’ has an open kitchen serving tapas-style pan-Asian dishes inspired by countries along the spice trail – spanning the Philippines, the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan and China.
Looking for something a bit different? Our private room at Gilpin Spice is perfect for 10-16 people to dine, and can be converted into a cinema room afterwards. Feast on the festive menu and relax in style – then screen a film or get out some embarrassing footage to have a laugh to on our 4k cinema screen…
