Review on The Gold Rill Country House Hotel
Standing in a quiet corner of Grasmere village overlooking the lake, Gold Rill is a personally run country house hotel set against a backdrop of awesome hills and fells. It boasts two acres of beautifully tended grounds, complete with a heated outdoor pool and a private pier.
Light lunches are served every day in the bar, but the main event is dinner, which is always preceded by aperitifs and canapés. Menus are modern British in style, with some classic European influences: roast best end of Lakeland lamb is glazed with red wine gravy and served on a bed of sauté leeks, while fillet of haddock could be poached in white wine and fish velouté and dressed with button mushrooms, tomato concasse and parsley. Begin with chicken and guinea fowl terrine with Cumberland sauce, and round things off with raspberry crème brûlée.
