Eat local in Grasmere restaurants
The Lake District is renowned for its high-quality produce, such as succulent lamb, fine Cumberland sausages and some great cheeses, along with specialities like Kendal mint cake and Grasmere gingerbread. The very best of these ingredients are finding their way onto the menus of British restaurants in Grasmere, which focus on fresh local produce. Take Dale Lodge Hotel and Restaurant, for example. A starter of smoked salmon from Cartmel served with beetroot, watercress and creme fraiche is simply divine and even better when followed by crispy local lamb shoulder with feta, mint, cannellini beans, and chorizo.
