Other restaurants in Ullswater, Eden Valley and the North Pennines

A Michelin star, four AA Rosettes, one of Harden’s top 100 UK restaurants for 2022 and a ‘real wizard’ in the kitchens as head chef. No wonder Allium is now ‘firmly on the gastronomic map,’ as The Times newspaper said in an article in early 2022.

The George & Dragon is closed for the time being because of a fire in June 2022 but its sister pub, the Queen’s Head at Askham’ (see above), under four miles (6.4km) away, is offering an expanded lunch service. Both pubs and Askham Hall (hotel) are part of the Askham Collection. 

Ullswater is the second biggest lake in the Lake District and the River Eden is the longest river in Cumbria. Dine out on the great views and dine in at some excellent pubs. One of them received its first Michelin star in 2022. Penrith and Appleby are the two biggest places in the Eden Valley.
