Visiting the Lake District puts you in the heart of Cumbria, a county famous for its hearty, stick-to-your-ribs fare. We’re talking about Grasmere gingerbread, salt marsh lamb, sticky toffee pudding, damson jam, and the famous Cumberland sausage.
You’ll find countless inns serving excellent pub grub, perfect for re-fuelling after an active day. A handful of restaurants now come with Michelin stars and there is no shortage of smart bistros and cafés in the region’s towns. Of course, you’ll find a healthy scattering of old English tea rooms to dive into as and when the mood takes you or the weather changes.
Food and drink markets help give an insight into what the locals are taking care to produce. The Lake District has its share of distilleries, producing the likes of gin and whisky, and there are breweries that are open to the public, offering guided tours and tastings, and telling the story of the beer that they brew.
Sometimes the nicest food and drink surprise comes in the form of a little stall outside a cottage, perhaps selling some homemade jam, or that morning’s freshly laid eggs, so keep an eye out for such places as you explore the area.
