The Food of the North

Hyper-seasonal, climatically local cooking


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.

July highlights

- Soft fruits, herbs and legumes from our garden
- Scottish monkfish
- Hand dived Orkney scallops
- Cumbrian milk fed lamb and veal
- Summer truffles

Booking is essential. Please call us on 015394 22012.
