Description: Gilpin Lodge is a luxurious hotel and restaurant with a friendly, family-run atmosphere, located in the Lake District just 2 miles from Lake Windemere. Set in 20 acres of private gardens, moors and woodlands, Gilpin has been run as a hotel by the Cunliffe family since 1987 and has won countless awards over the years for its exquisite British cuisine and 300+ wine list. The four intimate dining rooms and Chapagne Bar are decadent yet down-to-earth, and the bar, gardens and lounges are pefect for an informal lunch. Signature dishes include fresh native oysters set in their own jelly; loin of Grizedale venison with baby Savoy cabbage, parsnips, chestnuts and a cinnamon sauce; and hot prune and Armagnac souffl�� with ice cream.

Perfect place to dine - very refined but yet very comfortable surroundings. The new champagne bar and terrace are lovely. So many delicious flavours and everything is beautifully presented. Can highly recommend it.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2007

Absolutely my favourite place to eat. Well deserving of the Michelin star, the food is very rarely less than superb. The long-established staff are also efficient, experienced and very likeable, achieving a fine balance between formality and friendliness towards regular visitors. Gilpin is a haven of fine food and comfort.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2007

Beautifully presented food, using nothing but the best local produce. Set in a friendly and relaxed country house hotel, in an outstanding setting. Ideal for that sunday lunch or evening meal, when you want something just a little more up-market and refined.
