Description: Linthwaite House Hotel restaurant overlooking Lake Windermere in the sublime Lake District is a very special place indeed. With views that would have thrilled Wordsworth, Linthwaite House Hotel has chosen luxurious, tasteful interiors to please even the most jaded urbanite and the kitchen, under chef Simon Bolsover, is daring and modern too. Fresh, local ingredients conspire in a signature dish like 60 Degree Herdwick Lamb with braised neck kataifi, cep and kidney risotto. Choose from light lunch menu on the terrace, daily changing table d’hote menu or simpler a la carte in the elegant dining room, with its vast mirror collection, in the evenings, vegetarian menu, or trad Sunday lunch, all accompanied by a blistering global wine list.

The seven course taster menu was a delight. The wine selection to accompany it was also great. Portions were surprisingly big for a taster menu but not overpowering. Service was friendly and informative.

The food was good as was the dining experience however watch out for the price of the drinks! Outrageously expensive in my opinion, taking advantage is the most polite phrase I can use.

We found Linthwaite House through the afternoontea.co.uk web site, a great resource for those who don't know it (I have no connection to it other than as a happy user). We dropped into Linthwaite House around 4pm on the way back from a drive, and they had one table left in their conservatory, which we grabbed. We ordered afternoon tea,... More

We were lucky to visit on an afternoon we could sit outside. Such a gorgeous setting. Afternoon tea was delicious. And service quintessentially english! Like a butler! The highlight was the yoghurt and compote shot glasses. Just delicious! And an unexpected addition to your typical afternoon tea. Cakes (carrot cakes, victoria sponges, brownies and more) lovely, but if I had... More

After enjoying dinner the evening of our arrival, we decided to book the next two nights as well, since it seemed unlikely that we would find any dining substantially superior and the advantage of being able to retire after a few glasses of wine—rather than drive on the narrow, winding roads—was obvious. By the time we finished, we had sampled... More

Cannot fault this hotel. Excellent, professional staff who all remember your name. Managers always present, in particular during meal times. Food superb with good choice. Bedrooms and public areas beautifully furnished. Lovely setting and beautiful gardens.

Popped in for afternoon tea on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Staff were very friendly and gave us a choice of sitting in or outside. We went outside and ordered our afternoon tea. A delicious tray of sandwiches were presented beautifully but obviously the best bit was the scrummy cakes! Well, 2 scones with cream and home made damson jam, carrot... More

We stayed here with the kids and booked two rooms for the long weekend. The hotel oozes Lake District charm and the views from every angle are simply breathtaking. The afternoon tea was delightful. Staff attentive and catered for the kids well. We both had in room massages which were sublime.
