Windermere is becoming more and more of a foodie destination as the weeks go by. What a choice of places to dine there are both in stand alone restaurants and restaurants within hotels as well as wholesome cafes and takeaway venues, independent butchers and bakers.
It is definitely something the owners and head chef at Applegarth Villa Hotel & Restaurant have noticed and they have more than stepped up to the plate to offer their diners, residents and non residents, an even better gastronomic experience.
Local, seasonal produce are the buzz words up and down the country at the moment which is so good to hear. It’s what we should be eating as much as possible for it’s sustainability, support of local businesses, freshness and goodness. Here are three great reasons to visit and stay in a hotel that understands all this:
Reason 1 – Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Here are two different breakfast options offered by Applegarth Villa, Cumbrian smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and eggs benedict with Cumbrian ham, both using local, free range eggs.
Reason 2 – Cumbrian beef and lamb. Cumbria and the Lake District farmers know a thing or two about rearing the very, very best. They are both highly popular choices on menus up and down the county.
Reason 3 – Sticky toffee pudding. Not all the ingredients may be local but it is most definitely a pudding born in Cumbria and well worth celebrating (and devouring!). John’s recipe is also gluten free making it .
