Description: At the heart of Gilpin is a very passionate family and team, dedicated to creating lasting memories for their guests, who return time and again for celebrations and escapes. With five stars, one Michelin Star and three AA Rosettes, warmth and friendliness are balanced with extraordinary service, exquisite décor and stunning culinary experiences at these two luxury country houses spanning two estates in the beautiful Lake District. Dine in either the Michelin starred main restaurant, ‘Hrishi’, where Hrishikesh Desai combines great Lake District produce and classic methods to deliver unbelievable textures and flavours with just a twist of Asia, or in ‘Gilpin Spice’ a new informal restaurant transcending international boundaries, with an open kitchen focussing on dishes from the spice trail spanning the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan and China. At Gilpin Hotel all of the bedrooms have lovely Lakeland views, most leading directly onto the gardens - 6 Garden Suites with their own cedarwood hot tubs, and 5 fabulous detached Spa Lodges with private ensuite spas (rainmaker showers and steam rooms inside, hydrotherapy hot tubs and saunas outside) for a very special, private experience. Just a mile away at Gilpin Lake House, just 6 suites enjoy exclusive access to 100 acres of grounds, including a stunningly beautiful private lake, boat house, pool, hot-tubs and spa.

on arrival we were greeted by warm friendly staff who showed us into the lounge area which was very pleasant, they took our drinks order then surprised us with a selection of canapes, the wine list is vast and you can also choose a selected glass of wine to go with each coure which we did..i think the £52 for the 5 courses we had was real value for money as the produce is all locally sourced and of top quality, the staff were very helpful and attentive. All in all and excellent evening.

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.

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.
