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.

This was not the first time we have eaten here as we stayed there a couple of times a few years ago. However, decided to go back for our tenth anniversary meal, not a bad decision at all! Both the food and the service were excellent, and deserving of full marks. This is not the place to go to if you want to fill up on basic nosh but if you have a special occasion and fancy a taste of fine dining you could do a whole lot worse that going to Linthwaite.

For £52 for the dinner menu, drinks and coffee are extra, it is very good value. All the little things that make up the visit, like the petit fours and the after dinner chocs if you go for coffee really are a top draw touch.

Exceptional food recommended by our daughter and lived up to expectations. There is a dab hand in the kitchen we will be back.

We came to this hotel for afternoon tea on a grey Cumbrian Sunday afternoon. The views over Windermere were relaxing and pleasant. The service excellent and the sandwiches and cake were very good. We particularily enjoyed the creamed vanilla yoghurt dessert. The scones, which were huge, were still warm from the oven when served.

We also appreciated the free wifi which is invaluable given the poor phone signal in the area.

We decided to have our Gourmet Dinner at Linthwaite House, beautiful surroundings, Michelin star food and fantastic staff. We had our pre dinner drinks on the patio the views where fantastic.
We went for the seven course option with wine. Every course was delicious and the wine's excellent with each course.
