Situated within a converted Eighteenth-Century tannery in Kendal resides the tranquil Riverside Hotel. Within its historic setting lies the Riverview Restaurant which serves a thoughtful selection of British dishes.
The chefs are keen to support local food producers and are proud of their connections with nearby Cumbrian and North Lancashire farmers. All meat used is fully traceable and the tender beef and lamb are reared on the verdant hills abundant in the area. The venue has its own kitchen garden where it grows fruit, vegetables and herbs that are produced using organic principles. Keeping it local is important to the cooks and the menu reflects this ethos.
Begin a delicious three-course meal by picking a dish of Windermere scotch duck egg with Cumberland sausage, chicken liver parfait, or forest mushroom risotto with shaved parmesan and truffle oil. For mains, be seduced by the braised shank of fell-bred lamb, Cumbrian prime beef steak, crispy battered lemon sole fillet, or gnocchi teamed with parmesan and a sage beurre noisette. Whether concluding a mouth-watering meal with a ripe selection of Great British cheeses or a selection of English Lakes’ ice creams, the chefs keep it local to the end.
The Riverside Hotel is aptly named due to its situation alongside the River Kent. The venue is set over five floors and sits beneath the ruins of Kendal’s Twelfth-Century castle. The child-friendly restaurant is styled in a traditional way with a selection of well-spaced tables providing a cosy place in which to dine. As the gateway to the Lakes, Kendal is a popular destination for visiting tourists. The Riverside Hotel and Riverside Restaurant cater admirably for passers-by, and showcase the best of local produce within its working kitchen and abundant kitchen garden.
