Set within a twenty-acre estate with landscaped gardens, woodlands and views of Lake Windermere, Cragwood Country House on Ambleside Road is a special setting for a meal, popular with guests staying at the hotel as well as Cumbria locals. Originally built in 1910, Cragwood Country House's interior is equally as stunning as its surrounds. Taking advantage of the restaurant’s Lake District location, Cragwood Country House’s menu showcases the area’s best local produce. Some standout dishes include the oven roasted pigeon breast with spring roll leg meat, puy lentil & chorizo cassoulet and parsnip & pigeon jus and the pave of Scottish salmon served with lobster & squid ink risotto, aubergine caviar, sea vegetables and asparagus & lobster veloute. A popular choice for special occasions, making a reservation at Windermere’s Cragwood Country House in advance is advised.
We were on our Honey moon. I couldn't of wished for a nicer place to stay. The Hotel was lovely including the grounds that it is set in with Beautiful views. The food was good and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. My only snag was that the pack lunches were a little expensive at £12 although you did get an extensive lunch for that. Will definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed a superb evening dinner at this delightful hotel. Starting with canapés on the patio with a view out over Lake Windermere, then inside to the pleasant dining room to enjoy a four course meal with coffee and chocolates out on the patio again. Our main course was duo of duck, beautifully cooked and attractively presented. The pear sorbet was delicious and my desert of sticky toffee pud finished off a wonderful meal. Service was first rate. Thank you
Beautfully presented, tasty food served by attentive staff. A lovely dining experience. The hotel feels more like a home and the traditional surroundings really added to our experience.
