For the finest in Cumbrian Lake District dining, this AA rosette winning restaurant in Waterwillock comes complete with 22 acres of gardens, a helipad and private access to the shores of Ullswater. In other words, this 200 year old retreat is the James Bond of country house hotels, and therefore a popular choice for weddings and private parties. The acclaimed Regency Restaurant is just another reason why Leeming House is such a desirable destination. The dining room ��� decorated with plush carpets, garden-fresh roses and theatrical drapes ��� enjoys panoramic views of the gardens and lake, and the modern British menu includes favourites such as the pan-fried coley with crushed potatoes, and the glazed lemongrass tart.

Expensive and not much choice (slightly pretentious) but nice views and food quality was very good. There was no A La Carte menu, just a fixed 4 choice menu which was unchanged during our stay.

Leeming House has a comfortable lounge with lovely views from the two window seats (if you're early enough to nab them). A preprandial Kir Royale does not skimp on the cassis; rich, sweet and luxurious. In recent visits I have been regularly attended by the Polish Maitre D', and a young South African waiter, both of whom offer excellent attention... More
