Forest Side


The Forest Side’s restaurant is designed to be a reflection of the very landscape in which it sits. To help achieve this, we select only the freshest locally sourced seasonal produce, which is then paired with an exclusive wine list featuring small organic and bio-dynamic wine producers.

Our food ethos is also firmly rooted in the Cumbrian landscape, inspired by Head Chef Kevin Tickles’ upbringing in the Western Lake District. His dishes reflect the provenance of the ingredients used and we want to share this with you – we ask you to journey with us through this rich place and feast through what you see, smell and taste.

Children welcome up until 7pm in the restaurant.

Chef: Kevin Tickles
