The Lingholm Kitchen & Walled Garden
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 October 2018

Lingholm has always been a special place and I used to love visiting here when you could wander through the grounds admiring the amazing collection of rhododendrons. Sadly that's no longer possible but that shouldn't put you off visiting. There's several ways of reaching Lingholm...it has its own jetty on Derwentwater so arriving by boat so one option. If you are following the Lakeside path, you will pass right by Lingholm and of course arriving by car is the most common way. There are two car parks so there is ample space to park and it's only a short walk to the walled guarded and kitchen. There would be even more space to park if some people were more considerate and actually park their car rather than seemingly abandoning it!
The walled garden has matured since last year and although we visited towards the end of September, there was still plenty of colour and interest. We were rather taken aback when several llamas ( or alpacas) appeared!
The Lingholm kitchen offers a variety of hot and cold snacks and meals with sitting in and outside. Dogs are welcome. We thought the menu was shorter this year but there is still plenty of choice. Find a table first, choose your food then order and pay at the counter. Staff are very friendly and efficient and you don't have to wait too long for your food.
Prices are about average for the Lake District. We paid around £30 for a one course ouch with drinks and thought it was very good value for money.
Highly recommended.

We heard of this beautiful estate only recently and decided to give it a go and wow was it good? Very pleasant staff and prompt service.
All the food the four of us had was excellent, but the eggs Benedicti were amazing. Sourdough bread with ham hock two beautiful poached eggs plus watercress. Just perfect

What a delightful hidden gem this place is, set in beautiful grounds and gardens. The food was absolutely delicious, recommend the Eggs Benedict.
We visited twice during our holiday the second time arriving via the Keswick launch followed by by a beautiful woodland walk to the kitchen. We will definitely be returning.

Well off the beaten track this is a very busy cafe/restaurant. I had a good vegetable soup and rather regretted not having the pulled pork dish my friend had. Luckily there was too much for her so I got to share - it was delicious and very different from the sickly sweet gastro pub version.

We stumbled upon this whilst spending few hours walking around Derwent Water, a real gem! A wonderful cafe with good choice of snacks, cakes and meals. Very prompt service and a bustling atmosphere. We really loved the walled garden,and the information boards explaining the links with Beatrix Potter. Brilliant!
