MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

One MICHELIN Star: High quality cooking, worth a stop!

As you leave the small hamlet of Braithwaite, the narrow road rises steeply towards the Whinlatter Forest and Pass. Here, you’ll find a small black and white roadside inn run by a friendly team. It really is a cosy little place: in winter sit in the dining room; in summer take in the view over the fells and valley from the conservatory.

Chef Ben Wilkinson has made the place his own and there is a quiet confidence to his cooking. Top quality ingredients and classic techniques take the lead, and there is a certain sophistication to the well-balanced flavour pairings – and while skilfully making the dishes look eye-catching, he manages to avoid over-elaboration. Like the food, the service is natural and honest, and you leave feeling that they really do care about every little detail here.

Contemporary bedrooms complete the picture.
