Where are the 5 best places to eat in the Lakes?
In my opinion and in no particular order, these 5 always deliver a great meal.
Woodside and Fell View Cottages - quality accommodation in the LakesOne of the best places to visit in the Lakes is Cartmel. Not only have you a Medieval village, Priory, fabulous shops, cafes and a race course but you also have 2 top restaurants!
L’Enclume has just been voted THE best restaurant in the UK. It is owned by Simon Rogan. It’s a10 minute drive from Woodside in the village of Cartmel
Also in the village of Cartmel is Simon Rogan’s Bistro. Slightly simpler fayre than L’Enclume but still excellent.
Next up is The Swan (our local to Woodside Cottage ) I particularly like the ribs…fantastic. A beautiful setting on the banks of the River Leven and a few minutes drive from Woodside or a leisurely walk through the woods.
The Crown at High Newton is an excellent pub/restaurant. The burgers are great.I always enjoy sitting outside on a Summer's afternoon for a drink.
And finally a pub that never fails to deliver. A family run pub that was runner up in 2015 in “The friendliest pub in GB”competition.
The Pheasant is in the village of Allithwaite (6 minutes walk away from Fell View and 20 mins away car, from Woodside) is run by Charlotte and her team. I recommend the duck!
