Other restaurants in Grasmere, Hawkshead and Coniston

’Why don’t we open a café and sell a few cakes?’ said Andy and Chrissy Hill to each other in 1996 and with those few words a local legend was born. Much loved by many, the family owned restaurant was once described by the Good Food Guide as the ‘ultimate in personal hospitality’.

This is a part of the Lake District which encompasses some of its great walking areas - the Langdale valleys and the Coniston fells, for instance - so it won’t be difficult to work up an appetite for some serious dining. A Michelin starred restaurant is just outside William Wordsworth’s local village of Grasmere.
