I took dinner at Ravenstone Lodge's new Coach House Restaurant and was very pleasantly surprised. Since our last visit some time ago, the dining room has been entirely revamped and the menu has a very fresh new look as well. We sat indoors, though several fellow guests ate on the terrace outside, getting an even better view over Bassenthwaite and the high fells behind. The ambience is modern without being intrusive and the service warm and friendly. I started with scallops and chorizo, followed by confit of duck with poached duck egg and sweet potato purée, and then a deliciously light chocolate sponge dessert with ice cream, custard and cherries in brandy. All were served with style and slipped down very easily. I recommend and would definitely return if I was in the area.

I stayed in the Ravenstone Lodge for two nights. It is a wonderful small hotel, that combines the personal attention one gets in a good B&B with all the facilities of a hotel. The restaurant is really very good, with an inspiring mix of recipes from both the region and other parts of the world. I had a perfect sea bar on the first day of our stay, and Cumbrian sausage on the second day.

We were recommended to have dinner at the Coach House Restaurant. From Kesswick (where we stayed with friends) it was a short drive direction Bassenthwaite and it was very easy to find the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised - great food, good wines & excellent service. What do you need more to have a great evening! Highly recommended!

It would be easy to overlook this great restaurant with amazing food near Keswick. One would assume a small inn/b&b would not be worth the stop unless you were staying there.you would be wrong.
While staying at Ravenstone Lodge would make it easier to dine and enjoy a meal at the Coach House, you do not have to stay there to enjoy the fine dinning..
We stayed four fantastic nights and expected to sample the local restaurants, but after one great dinner, following the best breakfast we have ever had, my wife and I decided why bother going anywhere else?
An unpretentious room with a wonderful setting and fantastic food. Dinners that you might expect in London at thrice the price, well served. Elad , the chef does a truly exceptional job in preparing memorable meals. We experienced lamb, salmon, and steak each locally sourced and accompanied by local, seasonal legumes. Creative deserts and fine service and a good wine list top it all off. Do not miss it!
