Some people visit the Lake District for the scenery. Others come for the incredible food. At Holbeck Ghyll we are proud to combine the two in a way that no other luxury Lake District hotel can.

Recognised as one of the best restaurants in the North, Holbeck Ghyll’s  fine dining rooms form the focal-point of most visits to our country house hotel.

Together with our supremely talented head chef Jake Jones, we’ve built a reputation around serving the very finest food – locally sourced where possible – and in a mouth-wateringly imaginative way. It’s the reason we’ve been awarded multiple awards over the years and why even the toughest food critics can’t throw enough compliments our way. Coupled with one of the most extensive wine cellars in the region, and quite incredible views from the elegant oak-panelled dining room, Holbeck Ghyll is the ultimate gastro getaway.

The Dinner Menu for non-residents and guests staying on a B&B rate is priced at £68 per person including canapes and amuse-bouche followed by a three-course meal. Alongside the Dinner Menu we offer our seven course tasting Menu at £88 per person.

We do encourage people who are looking to dine at Holbeck Ghyll to also stay.  Our Dinner Inclusive Rate is £110 more than the B&B rate; making dinner for two effectively £55 per person.
