Allium at Askham Hall

MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Relax by the fire in the sitting room of this 11C castle, while you enjoy canapés and peruse the hugely impressive wine selection from the estate cellars; then head through to the modish, country kitchen style restaurant with its unique tiled floor, views over the mature gardens and elegant private room. Service is charming and it’s worth taking the advice of the experienced team. Locally born chef Richard Swales oversees the kitchen, offering a concise menu with just two choices at each course. These dishes are driven by the seasons and the availability of produce from the Lowther Estate, in which the castle sits. The gardener plays an important part in guiding the menu, advising which ingredients are at their peak and what to plant next. Accomplished dishes have a certain simplicity to them but also focus on complementary textures and tastes.
