With a wonderfully picturesque setting on the shores of Lake Windermere, Waterhead Bar & Grill is a chic, contemporary eatery that adds modern tweaks to established regional dishes.

Carefully selected regional ingredients go into the Waterhead Bar & Grill menu, as seen in starters like locally produced artisan breads, and pressed Cumbrian corn-fed chicken with ham and baby leek terrine. International twists can be found in flavoursome recipes like Asian spiced Cumbrian pork belly with lemongrass and coriander, crisp noodles and anise scented carrots, and there is a popular grill selection of tender steaks. The restaurant also boasts a wood-fired pizza oven, cooking up hand-stretched bases loaded with premium toppings.

To finish, desserts at Waterhead Bar & Grill Ambleside include homemade Brockman's gin and tonic sorbet with crystallised lemon, and classic custard tart with glazed banana. A full wine list and dedicated gin menu are also served.

Also offering a special gluten-free menu, Waterhead Bar & Grill boasts stunning natural surroundings, and sits 10 minutes' drive from Windermere Rail Station.

    Service was OK
    Disappointed that we ordered a glass of wine with the main course and it never arrived!
