The Pheasant at Bassenthwaite's fine dining restaurant is renowned for excellent food that exceeds expectations, and we were recently awarded 2 AA Rosettes in recognition of the precision in cooking and quality of ingredients. We are proud to be the only restaurant in the Cockermouth area with 2 rosettes.
The experience is not simply a matter of fine dining – regular guests expect the best local produce, beautifully prepared and presented and served in a unique setting and ambiance with the very highest standards of service. Our dinner menu epitomises the flavours and freshness, seasons and specialities of Cumbria and the Lake District.
The sommelier works with a very well known and discriminating Cumbrian merchant to offer a selection of wines to accompany your meal. These are chosen from across the world, each one for its quality, its reliability and its specific ability to complement and compliment our menu.
We invite you to visit, taste the best that Lakeland has to offer and enjoy a memorable fine dining meal in a beautiful, relaxed setting.
The Fell Restaurant is open in the evenings Tuesday to Saturday (from 7pm til 9pm) and for traditional Sunday lunch (Sunday from 12pm til 2pm). The menu changes regularly - to view our latest dinner menu, see the link in the Sample Menus column.
