Where to eat

Cumbria is renowned for its excellent locally produced food, so wherever you choose to eat whilst visiting the Ullswater Valley, you will be in for a culinary treat.

From eggs that are ‘Laid with Love’ to Puddings ‘Made by the Farmer’s Wife’ or meat reared on local farms, the produce you will sample in many of the pubs, cafes and restaurants around Ullswater will be sourced locally…and is some of the best you’ll taste.

Whether you are looking for a packed lunch for your adventures around the Lake District or a gourmet meal for two, there is something to suit all taste buds.
