We strongly believe that what we eat has a direct effect on our daily responses, our wellbeing and our long term health. A well balanced diet is essential. Our freshly prepared meals are not only nutritionally designed to provide this but are also presented to deliver a feast for the eyes and the mind.
Lancrigg’s position in the centre of the Lake District has many benefits. However, a downside is that we have not found it possible to maintain a 100% supply of organic products. However, we do still have a strong emphasis on using many organic and locally produced ingredients. Our aim is to provide a menu that is fresh, colourful, imaginative, zestful, nutritious and delicious, to leave you feeling satisfied, uplifted, rejuvenated and inspired.
