Food & Wine at Appleby Manor Hotel & Garden Spa

Appleby Manor prides itself on its fine cuisine - in recognition of this over the past 15 years we awarded many accolades including 2 AA rosettes,  - which makes Appleby Manor Country House Hotel one of the best dining experiences in the Lake District region. Awards and mentions for the restaurant cuisine have come from a variety of sources including the AA, Michelin and Egon Ronay guides.

Why not judge for yourself - there must be a good reason why hotel guests and locals alike return time and again!

Good food and friendly service are the perfect recipe for a memorable meal every night. Traditional luxury, warm comfort and fine cuisine entice you to unwind whilst the hours slip by unnoticed.

1871 Bistro

The Bistro was created to complement our existing fine dining restaurant and has a more relaxed and informal feel, it also benefits from a fantastic outlook over the Eden Valley with views of Appleby Castle to the Lake District fells in the distance.

There are French doors which lead out onto our award winning gardens and patio. The atmosphere is intended to be relaxing, friendly and informal with good quality local produce at affordable prices, appetisers start from just £2.75, starters from £4.95 and main courses from just £11.95.

There is an emphasis on using locally sourced produce with Cumbrian Fell Bred, Lakes Speciality Foods, Appleby Creamery and Grapevine Wine Service among our suppliers.

The 1871 name was chosen to keep a link with the original Victorian manor house as it was built in this year. The room has been recently refurbished using local tradesmen and materials where possible with many reclaimed items such as the central down lights which have been sourced from the Concorde hangar.
