We believe in offering quality seasonal food, crafted by our award-winning team, and served in the uniquely characterful surroundings of our converted water mill. View our menus and restaurant opening times here.
We are proud to have Steven Doherty as our Executive Consultant Chef.
Steven has an incredible CV as Head Chef, most notably being the first Briton in history to run a three star Michelin restaurant and winning every accolade possible, whilst retaining its three star status for over a five year period. Moving to Cumbria in the 1990s, Steven enjoyed national praise whilst running The Brown Horse in Winster, before purchasing The Punch Bowl in Crosthwaite, which became one of the most highly decorated and acclaimed gastropubs in the UK.
Our first floor restaurant is located above the historic water wheel in what was originally the “milling room.” The restaurant celebrates the charm and character of the mill building, with original millstones and milling paraphernalia still in place in the centre of the room.
The room’s original exposed stone walls and features are complemented by design touches, to create the perfect venue for a relaxed meal with family, friends and colleagues or when dining out on a special occasion.
Seating up to 40 diners in total, our restaurant can comfortably sit tables from two to over 20 people. The air conditioned room is filled with natural light; the perfect place to enjoy our delicious menus and our carefully chosen wine list.

- Monday – Saturday
