Spring has sprung at the Applegarth Villa Hotel & Restaurant in Windermere with an exciting new menu.

This menu sees even more gluten free options with no compromise on taste or texture. In fact, removing heavy, bulky breads and pasta’s means flavour really shine through, something that is noted by all diners, not just those who are gluten intolerant.

Head Chef Joh Kelly has devised a menu offering local meats, fish and seafood as well as plenty of vegetables perfect for spring at this early time as well as thoroughly into the season. The menu is varied without being overwhelming with highlights including the Poached Duck Egg, Smoked pancetta, white pudding & homemade ketchup, Spring Rack of Lamb, Sauté potatoes, red cabbage, mint & honey glaze and Brandy Snap Basket with Elderflower sorbet and rhubarb gin.

The Applegarth signature dishes are still available though don’t worry! The Cumbrian Fellbred Fillet Steak with all the trimmings (one of John’s sauces are super with it), the cheese slate and the even so famous/popular/delicious Sticky Toffee Pudding (unbelievably gluten free too).

The new menu has also coincided with the confirmation the regular hand pull real ale available in the Applegarth Bar has been certified as gluten free. Collie Wobbles has long been a favourite with guest visiting from local and afar. Brewed by the award winning Watermill Brewing Company just down the road in Ings, Collie Wobbles is the perfect refreshing pint pre dinner, with dinner and most definitely post hike.

Applegarth Villa Hotel is in the centre of Windermere Village yet with views across the parks and of the fells from many of the rooms and luxury hot tub suites as well as the restaurant. On a quiet street yet in the heart of Windermere, Applegarth also has a large and secure off road park exclusively for residents and restaurant guests.
