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.

Delightful setting for afternoon tea on a Spring day Party of four, having visited Linthwaite house several times previously. This time enjoying their afternoon tea. Lovely fresh sandwiches and delightful scones and lovely varied cakes. Maybe a stronger balance in savouries would achieve perfection. The teas were delicious and as always the service impeccable !

Just spent our first one night stay at the hotel and while not cheap it is worth every penny. Location, food, staff and hotel are all fantastic. Great stay and a big thank you to all staff

Certainly the chef at Linthwaite is on trend with the latest techniques and flavour combinations, Champagne foam, confit duck, etc etc. The fixed price four course menus is excellent value at just £52 with a lovely restaurant area tastefully decorated in a classically modern style. Prior to dinner drinks are served in their sitting rooms in front of open fires.... More

Visited with family to take advantage of 2 for 1 deal, £56 for 2. Eaten here several times for lunch and once previously for dinner. It is silver service, fine dining. Described as a 4 course meal but really 3 courses with a tasty canape whilst having drinks in the lounge. Although a Monday the Restaurant was nearly full in... More

I think the title says it all. We have dined at many very well respected places. I dont think that any of them have bettered the Linthwaite. Just to add, the tasting menu was fantastic and i'd say the best afternoon tea i've had anywhere. Michael, Rebecca & Sam Worden

My boyfriend really enjoyed his meal and Linthwaite itself, however I didn't, so we compromised on a three score. From his perspective the place was lovely and the food quite good which is only fair to say. I agree the hotel was lovely, however other than the canapes, which were tasty and inventive, I really didn't enjoy the rest of... More

Our first visit but with friends who eat here regularly. We benefitted from the 2 for 1 offer (£52). We enjoyed a glass of excellent white wine whilst ordering, and between us, managed to sample a good range of dishes. All were cooked and presented in an excellent way, served with enthusiasm and professionalism by the staff. The restaurant was... More

Ate here with a friend. We live locally so usually just come when the winter dinner deal is on. The place is fabulous as are the staff. The food was lovely, although we both found our main courses too salty. I don't like salt at all! But did eat all my meal - lamb. My dining partner had beef and... More
