For both superb cuisine and lodgings in the Lake District, the Miller Howe Hotel on Rayrigg Road never disappoints. What sets this local icon apart from other nearby lodging options is its restaurant, a stunning, sophisticated dining spot that offers gourmet British cuisine in a gorgeous setting. Featuring beautiful views over Lake Windermere and its surrounding landscaped grounds and with an incredible terrace perfect for sitting out on warm summer days, the restaurant at Miller Howe Hotel is unlike anywhere else. The menu features an array of gourmet European dishes and British specialities that head chef Andy Beaton has updated to suit modern tastes, and you’ll find that the exquisite flavours almost perfectly match the restaurant’s stunning natural setting. With such a reputation for excellence, Miller Howe Hotel stays busy – book ahead of time to secure a table.
Food was unremarkable. My smoked mackerel tasted of very little. Luckily the sun was shining and the views were great. Blah blah blah blah. Blah.
Service was very good and attentive. Food was not as good as expected, both the duck breast and the steak were over cooked and disappointing.
The food was reasonable but the service was very slow. The restaurant was not particularly busy and it was difficult to understand the reason for the slow service.
