All the food served in our restaurant is prepared daily and cooked to order using only the best possible ingredients, which is exactly what we get from our local suppliers of meat, fish, vegetables & smoked foods.  All are local businesses who are as passionate about the quality of their produce as we are about our food.

The menu changes daily reflecting the season. Maybe for a starter you will select smoked duck and chicken breast from our smokehouse in Cartmel or perhaps James’s homemade Lakeland Ham Hock Terrine and for your main course his slow roast leg of lamb or a wild Cumbrian Venison steak served on a Rosti potato but whatever you choose we can guarantee that you will taste the difference; this is what food should taste like!

For our residents, for breakfast you may chose freshly baked criossant  or maybe an Eggs Benedict made either with smoked salmon or bacon or perhaps the traditional full English breakfast that will set you up for a days walking on the fells. Of course we also offer a variety of options for vegitarians.


Our Head Chef at Ravenstone Lodge is a James Cooper, a chef well known in the Lake District for the way he uses the wonderful local produce and for his creativity skill.  His roots are founded in British cooking but his experience takes you well beyond that so expect to find some favourite British dishes but with the odd unexpected twist and with the occasional surprise!
