Fodor's Review

Cuttlefish shells piled in the window and a Nordic-style wood-paneled interior give a clue as to the culinary style of Lake Road Kitchen, quite possibly the most awarded restaurant in Ambleside. About 80% of everything green on the menu is foraged; the remainder comes from the highest-quality, mainly local suppliers. Dishes may include fallow deer from the Holker Estate, aged steak from Lake District farms, and Fylde Coast wigeon. Every dish is creatively conceived and expertly put together, creating food of the highest order. There are two set menus (five and eight courses) each night, and no à la carte menu. Reservations are essential as there are just nine tables.
