The Restaurant

We are delighted to welcome Brandon Shepherd to Rothay Manor, as our new head chef. Brandon spent several seasons working in some of the best fine dining chalets in the French Alps, also including time spent at the Michelin star restaurant Le Farcon.

On his return to England he has worked his way up to the head chef position of the 3 rosette restaurant, East Lodge in Derbyshire, and will continue his passion for high-quality, local food here, at Rothay Manor.

The menu offers flavours from Cumbria and around the world.  We pride ourselves on our freshly prepared and cooked menu with everything made on the premises.  Where possible, all ingredients are sourced locally - bacon and  Cumberland sausage from F.W Garside in Ambleside, fish from Morecambe and Fleetwood, game from Cartmel and Holker Hall, local cheeses and ethically sourced tea and coffee from Farrer's of Kendal.

Breakfast is informal with a buffet for juices, cereals, assorted fresh and dried fruits, yoghurt and various healthy options. Enjoy our homemade marmalade and jams, freshly cut fruit salad,  secret recipe muesli, freshly squeezed orange juice and award winning Cumbrian breakfast which is cooked to order. 
Rothay Manor marmalade and jam are available to purchase at Reception. 

Afternoon Tea offers a wide selection of cakes, savouries and sandwiches, all freshly prepared daily by the kitchen team, and of course accompanied by a wide variety of fine teas  - or treat yourself to our Sparkling Afternoon Tea which also includes a glass of Champagne!

Our seasonal menu  includes pre-dinner canapes, coffee & petit fours, as well as our fabulous freshly baked bread.  With a choice of five starters, five main courses and five desserts, along with a cheese course there is something for all.

Service is friendly, efficient and unobtrusive while our comprehensive wine list offers wines to suit all budgets and tastes.
