The menu served in the restaurant at The Hydro is just another thing to marvel at. Filled with a wide range of classic British dishes, it is sure to provide you with exactly what you need. For the seafood lovers, try the rilette of Scottish salmon, which is a coarse pate of salmon flavoured with capers and green peppercorns, topped with a quenelle of crème fraiche and garnished with cherry tomatoes and a citrus vinaigrette. Also available is the chicken cassoulet, a locally sourced chicken breast with goat’s cheese and home grown thyme, wrapped in smoked bacon and carved into a bed of mixed bean casserole.

    Ate at the Hydro last week using tastecard. Hotel is hidden up a hill and so for non-locals like us, we wouldn’t have found this except for seeing it on tastecard search.

    Service was great, food was well presented and had lovely flavours. Menu changes daily but there were several options and I was spoilt for choice. Everyone said they would go back again and no issues using tastecard.

    Would recommend you stop by for dinner here! "

    We stayed in a self catering apartment around the corner from the hotel and used to walk past it on way into town. After a tough walk in the hills we decided to try the restaurant out. It accepted tastecard and we were feeling lazy after the hike.

    I am normally a little dubious of hotel food but the meal last night was a treat. Nice table near window overlooking (in distance) Lake Windermere. Real linen tablecloth and napkins.

    Attentive Maitre’d door. Pate and the smoked salmon starter recommended. I had a well presented tasty rump steak and chips. The Normandy pork medallions were thin strips and a little dry.

    The English of some of the waiting staff wasn't great but we managed.

    Ice cream and fruit salad to finish. With a Pint of Stella and bottle of Rioja (special price £14.95) and using the tastecard total price was only £49.95 (service extra). Not bad for 3 course meal. "
