About The Briery Wood Hotel

Everything about The Briery Wood Hotel on Lake Windermere is elegant and refined – and the food is no exception. Set among spectacular surroundings on Ambleside Road to the north of Windermere Village towards Troutbeck Bridge, The Briery Wood Hotel is a picturesque, popular venue for weddings. Still, you don’t need to be tying the knot to tick off one of the best dining experiences to be had in the Lake District off your list, because The Briery Wood Hotel’s restaurant is open to all. That’s definitely good news, because The Briery’s skilful presentation of first-rate British meals done in classical haute-cuisine style should not be kept secret. Given its reputation and prime location in Windermere, the restaurant books out quickly, but if you do manage to reserve a table you can look forward to a truly memorable Cumbrian meal – we implore you to try the chef’s specialty in particular, a delicate lemon and thyme panna cotta with fresh raspberries that’s hard to describe in words.

Lovely warm greeting upon our arrival, which continued throughout our stay. Room was spotless. Food orders taken in the lounge, then we were called to our table, when it was ready to be served, again the staff were all very friendly.

The Briery Wood Hotel was very clean with friendly staff. Our food was delicious! We were given an upgrade to the bridal suite as it was my husbands 65th birthday. Would highly recommend staying there for a peaceful holiday!!!
