With some truly breathtaking scenery, it’s no surprise that many fine chefs have set up restaurants in the Lake District. Here are some of the top rated restaurants within 20 minutes’ drive of Hawksmoor Guest House, which you might want to visit.
1) Holbeck Ghyll - 10 mins
Featured on BBC2’s “The Trip”, this Michelin starred restaurant is set in a former hunting lodge, and is famous among foodies for its Scottish take on familiar dishes.
2) Drunken Duck Inn - 19 mins
Customers frequently queue out of the door to eat here, so book well in advance. Traditional British pub staples are the star of the show here, with the in-house brewery providing some very nice local ale.
3) Punch Bowl Inn - 15 min
Hidden away, this Cumbrian favourite mixes old favourites with modern classics on both their menu and in their décor. Their rib eye steak and chips with home made sauces always go down well.
4) Hooked - 4 min
Head into Windermere town for this seafood lovers’ treat. The rainbow trout, caught locally, and Morecombe Bay shrimps are incredibly moreish.
