Following the completion of our £250,000 refurbishment, over 100 people including The Mayor of Kendal, Councilor Tom Clare, gathered at the Hotel last week to mark the launch of the new look two AA Rosette awarded Greenhouse Restaurant.
Guests were treated to a champagne reception and a tasting menu of canapés, from executive chef Justin Woods, which showcased his passion for local produce and elements of the restaurant’s new menu. Music duo, The Notes, provided entertainment in an evening where guests could enjoy the newly designed restaurant and bar.
‘We have received wonderful feedback about the new look restaurant and want to thank everyone who joined us to celebrate the official reopening.’’ said Hotel general manager Ben Mayou
He added: ‘The refurbishment gave us the perfect opportunity to gather together the regular diners and local businesses that support The Greenhouse and the Hotel throughout the year for a celebration. The restaurant is also proving a big hit with Hotel guests and conference delegates, and will enable us to continue to attract visitors and food lovers to the area.’
The restaurant layout has been redefined to create a larger bar area with banquette seating and feature log burner and uses a colour scheme that has been inspired by the local Lake District landscape. The lounge is colourful and dramatic with bright sofas and a domed roof light. The centre of the restaurant has been subtly divided into two areas by adding lighting features to the ceiling, and a more intimate dining space has been helped by a new ambient lighting scheme.
The Greenhouse features a 5 course tasting menu, alongside an individually priced selection of sharing dishes and a daily changing menu. All are based around the excellent seasonal, local produce available our doorstep.
