We offer two menus at Lake Road Kitchen:
- Five Courses £60
- Eight Courses £85
- Wine pairings available for both menus
- Selection of 3 cheeses £9.50 (as an extra course)
We make the most of our regions best meat, fish and shellfish. Home grown and foraged produce is at the heart of both menus. Our wines and spirits are sourced from across Northern Europe.
As we work within the unpredictable Northern climate, preservation is always present in our cooking.
The best quality ingredients are often only available in small quantities so whilst some dishes might be available for a month, others may only be available for one night.
We specialise in ageing steak at Lake Road Kitchen. If you would like to try our aged steak, then please let us know when you book as it is only available upon request and subject to availability. They can be ordered (for an additional cost) in place of or in addition to your main course. Because of the way it is aged, portioned and cooked, the steak is for two to share.
