Built in 1650 as a coaching inn, and mentioned in a Wordsworth poem "The Waggoner", Macdonald Swan Hotel, Grasmere is one of the oldest hotels in the Lake District. Nestled in the Cumbrian countryside, with views across the Fells, enjoy sunny vistas in summer and blazing log fires in winter.
Made with the freshest seasonal produce, tempting British dishes on the Waggoner’s Restaurant menu include slow-braised blade of beef and leek stew with new potatoes and chive dumplings.
By the fire in the Walkers' Bar enjoy a comforting plate of homemade fish pie or Cumberland pork sausages & mash from the traditional British menu. A classic 3-tiered afternoon tea includes freshly made finger sandwiches, home baked scones, strawberry preserve and clotted cream and assorted mini cakes & fine patisserie.
