Lovelady Shield Country House Hotel has been described as England's best kept secret by many of its visitors.
This elegant Georgian Country House Hotel stands on the former site of a 13th century convent on the banks of the River Nent, which nestles in the foothills of Alston Moor.
The restaurant at Lovelady provides elegant surroundings in which to enjoy the award winning cuisine prepared by their Master Chef, Mr Barrie Garton
Barrie's menus are imaginative and varied using fresh and mostly local produce. He describes the restaurants’ cuisine as "British with continental excursions".
The venue’s wine list contains over 100 wines and in 2002 the restaurant was awarded ‘North West Wine List of the Year’ by Les Routiers.
