The Rothay Manor was built in 1823 and has been an hotel since 1936, so when you make the move out to Ambleside, you know you’re in for a treat that has stood the test of time. Set in the heart of the Lake District – one of the most picturesque parts of the UK – and featuring a high-class chef in Brandon Shepherd, they offer a tasting menu, a Sunday lunch and a dinner selection filled with British classics. We’d recommend the mussels with dry ice, the fish and chips – poached in squid ink, not fried – and supreme of chicken with fresh black truffle and cauliflower. The Sunday lunch is pretty spectacular too, with roast beef, turkey, pork, pollock and Comte cheese, served with all the trimmings (veggies, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings) and followed by English and European cheese or a classic bread and butter pudding. The Ambleside area is always worth a visit for the scenery and the hiking opportunities, and the Rothay Manor is worth the trip all on its own: so book a table now.

Lovely setting and attentive staff. Had the taster menu and wine pairing which was excellent with some unusual combinations. Beautifully served and the courses well explained. Craig was very knowledgeable about the wine selection and some really interesting choices for the wine pairing
Pleasant meal in nice setting, staff were attentive and polite. Would recommend.
