Review on Lakeside Hotel

Originally a coaching inn, staging post and retreat for travellers working in the cotton trade, the Lakeside Hotel is still in the business of hospitality with executive suites, picturesque gardens, a pool and spa as part of its attraction.

It makes the most of its setting on the southern shores of Lake Windermere and has its own private jetty where, if you hire a boat for the day*, this is the place to pull up for lunch. It also offers a delightful lounge and terrace overlooking the water where 'sizzling Sunday jazz lunches' are a feature during the summer.

Formal meals are served in the aptly named Lakeview Restaurant, and the kitchen makes good use of Cumbrian produce for a menu of modern European dishes along the lines of loin of Herdwick lamb with slow-cooked flageolet beans, garlic, wilted chard, olives and a red pepper essence, corn-fed chicken breast with 'rolled leg', hotpot potato and morel ragoût, and grilled West Coast halibut with gem hearts, confit potatoes, mustard and caper butter.

Alternatively, head for John Ruskin's Brasserie, which offers quick snacks and light dishes in chic, contemporary surroundings.
