The Best Place for Cumbrian Cuisine

Whether you’re searching for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the Greenhouse Restaurant is the home of Cumbrian cuisine. Nestled atop a hill on the outskirts of Kendal, you can enjoy the South Lakeland landscape with every mouthful.

Our chefs have crafted a menu that blends English cooking traditions with creativity and a stunning presentation. With a team boasting two AA Rosettes, they incorporate flavours unique to the North West, locally sourced produce, and seasonal ingredients into every dish.

Craft your own menu with our range of delicious starters, mains, and desserts. Prepared to perfection, we recommend our pan fried breast of Cartmel Valley wood pigeon, flavoured with cauliflower puree, bacon jam, pomegranate, and pickled shallots. A scrumptious starter, it’ll take your hand and usher you into the lakes.

For your main, delight in a crispy confit pork belly with croquette, cheek, fondant potato, Cumberland sauce, spring cabbage, black pudding beignet, and onions. Heart warming in the Winter, the combination of pork and potato makes for a truly comforting dish.

Before you go, tingle your taste buds with our miniature Cumbrian desserts. Inspired by locally loved sweet treats, our platter includes sticky toffee pudding, gingerbread and butter pudding, damson Bakewell, damson gin jelly, and Kendal mint cake ice cream.

Lake District local? Alexander's is the perfect place for a pint no matter the weather. Serving a range of local draught beers, you can explore the region with our tasting menu, including three real ales for just £3.75. While you’re there, enjoy pub-classics with a Cumbrian flare, including Haddock battered in Cumbrian ale, served with hand cut chips, mushy peas, and tartar sauce.
