Dine Out in the Lake District or Lancashire Monetary Gift Voucher Icon | English Lakes Hotels

One to give and to share. It’s not just about the food, although taste is high on the menu. It’s about taking time out to enjoy the best things in life… the best people in your life. Putting the world to rights, taking stock, how the kids are doing, people’s politics, who won the match, and why? All of this in comfy surroundings, beautiful backdrops and enjoying two courses of Chef’s freshest and best. Add another course if the conversation’s not finished!

Steak Nights at Rotunda Monetary Gift Voucher Icon | English Lakes Hotels

Sizzling steaks in a seaside location. Enjoy the friendly informal buzz of our Steak Nights at The Rotunda – a great night out for friends or family. Just choose your steak, your sauce and your sides. Sit back with our signature gins, cocktails, your favourite pint or a glass of red and enjoy the sunset over the bay.

Sunday Lunch Monetary Gift Voucher Icon | English Lakes Hotels

Another experience to share. If we’ve learned anything in the last year, it’s the value of being able to be together as a family, or with friends. Priceless! Sunday lunch must be one of the best British institutions ever to emerge. It’s not just about delicious slow cooked roasts, crispy potatoes, voluminous Yorkshire puddings and lashings of rich gravy – although stunning in their own right. No, it’s about precious time with those that we want to hold closest. Living life like it matters.
