First built in 1854 as a private country retreat and housing an unmissable 200 year old cedar tree in its grounds, tradition and a sense of place are important to both the look and the food at The Cedar Manor Hotel and Restaurant. You will find Cedar Manor offers a seasonally changing a la carte and table dhote menu of classic British food on which all produce is sourced from providers based in the surrounding Lake District. Open to guests and non-residents, one might want to relax with a book in the cosy hotel bar and take in the views of the nearby Lake Windermere before taking a seat in the restaurant which has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes.

Only had breakfast, but it was excellent! Lots of choice of hot dishes - Eggs benedict, smoked haddock and poached egg, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on bagel, as well as usual full English with local sausages, eggs and bacon.

A clever menu well thought out. All ingredients appear to be locally sourced. The head chef has a local reputation for excellently cooked meals. These are well presented and the service was excellent.
