Review on The Beech Hill Hotel, Burlington’s Restaurant
Terraced extensions stretching down to the jetty on Lake Windermere are a magnet for guests visiting this ever-improving country house hotel. Dinner is served in the plush surroundings of oak-panelled Burlington's Restaurant, which provides stupendous views across the lake over to the Old Man of Coniston and Langdale Fells.
Pride of place goes to the 'Gourmet Taste of the Lakes', a five-course extravaganza that is often introduced by a cappuccino of oysters and Champagne. Among the starters you might see diver-caught scallops with peas, pancetta and Parmesan foam or jokey 'nuggets' of Cartmel Valley rabbit with haricot bean purée and homemade ketchup. After a sorbet or a little risotto there are main courses of – say – roast Old Spot pork belly and fillet with smoked Cheddar mash, apple and parsnip fritters, while desserts could feature white chocolate and raspberry mousse.
There's also a 'Simple Taste of the Lakes' menu that delivers exactly what it promises (pot-roast brisket of beef, roast fillet of salmon, chilled lemon posset with home-baked shortbread). Light lunches and all-day snacks (12.00 – 6.30pm) are served on the terrace or in the hotel lounge. The wine list is sound and includes representatives from many lands.
