The Leathes Head is the first 2 AA Rosette Awarded Restaurant in the Borrowdale Valley.

We are truly passionate about our food at The Leathes Head where dining is always a special occasion. We welcome non-residents as well as hotel guests to this magnificent Edwardian Country House to be entertained in style. Our menu is brimming with fine dining options, some classic with a modern twist, all as full of imagination as they are of flavour.

Head chef Noel Breaks treats guests to a menu of locally grown, reared and foraged produce, including Herdwick Lamb from Yew Tree Farm in Rosthwaite, milk and free range eggs from Scales Farm, and fresh produce from other Cumbrian producers; fresh meat from Cartmel Valley Game and cheese from The Cheese Larder. We hope you can come and enjoy the Dining experience and take away something very special from your visit. Dining at The Leathes Head is without doubt a memorable experience that will be cherished for years to come.

We serve our award winning four course dinner for £42.95. We can also arrange a bespoke tasting menu with paired wines to really make your stay extra special.
