Virginia House is home to modern British cuisine, created by accomplished patron chef Craig Sherrington. Craig and partner Louise invite diners to their premises in Ulverston to enjoy their warm hospitality and creative menu.
Craig has amassed considerable experience in Michelin-starred restaurants under the tutelage of renowned mentors. He brings this knowledge and talent to the Virginia House kitchen where he seeks to impress his guests with an array of modern British dishes. He takes traditional recipes and injects them with a contemporary edge. The result is a carefully designed menu showcasing Craig’s distinctive and creative culinary flare.
Unsurprisingly given Craig’s calibre as a talented chef, he seeks produce locally wherever possible and only the finest quality ingredients grace his plates. Start the delightful meal with a dish of rollmop herring, potted Morecombe Bay shrimps, a hearty beef stew, or split pea and ham soup with a deep fried hen’s egg and truffle oil. The main courses showcase Craig’s creative side with entrants such as seared sirloin of Penny Bridge dexter beef with a veal jus, chickpea and paneer cheese moussaka, monkfish masala, and a roast breast of Goosnargh duck partnered with pistachios, carrots, cardamom and bitter chocolate.
Desserts are an intriguing affair executed with flare. Pressing of apple, pear and Calvados with custard ice cream, golden raisins and a pink pepper tulle, is offered alongside The Thai Life – a dessert consisting of mango, lime leaf, basil, cashew and yogurt.
The Virginia House restaurant is designed to reflect the menu: chic, stylish and contemporary. The careful lighting and warm colours adorning the walls lend a romantic feel to the room that is comfortable and inviting. Complemented by proficient service, fine food can be enjoyed in style amid good company.
