The Grill & Smokehouse Restaurant

The Wild Boar itself is famous - historically for being the site where Sir Richard de Gilpin is said to have slain the last wild boar! Nowadays however, the bar is adored for its classic British hearty menu and emphasis on seasonal, local ingredients.

'The excellent restaurant offers delicious country-style cooking'
Best Hotels in The Lake District: The Telegraph (2016)

Winner of the Cumbria Pub of the Year award in 2014 and receiver of Visit England’s 2015 Pub of the Year silver award, The Wild Boar’s smokehouse and grill is a popular stop for Windermere locals and visitors alike. With its culmination of traditional décor, time-honoured ‘coaching inn’ ambience and friendly service, it is a home-from-home delight that’s certain to entice guests and induce a desire to linger.

The Wild Boar possesses character in abundance, with its hearty yet modern British menu and an open kitchen that brings a little theatre to the dining experience. Oak-beamed and cosy by candlelight, the restaurant embraces a passion for tradition and excellence; from head chef Miroslav Likus making full use of Lakeland’s natural larder to the regularly changing menu.

Guests are sure to feel right at home within the Boar’s welcoming setting and find a tasty morsel to satisfy whatever their palate.
