Grasmere House Hotel
The Conservatory Restaurant, also fondly known as 'The Bistro on the River' is bright and light providing the perfect combination of calm and comfort, which makes dining here a certain success. The smell of freshly baked bread as you walk into the dining room is a promising start indeed. Throughout the year, chefs here at Grasmere utilise the wealth of produce brought-forth by the changing seasons and conjure dishes that reflect the eclectic influences of the modern world. European, Middle Eastern, Asian, Pacific Rim and of course British cuisine all feature. In spring, you might expect to find delicately spiced vegetables served with lime leaves and a creamy coconut milk sauce, whereas autumn provides delights such as shank of lamb marinated and pot-roasted in red wine with root vegetables, fresh herbs and balsamic vinegar and served with wholegrain mash. For an alternative view, the Sarisberie Conservatory is adjacent to the restaurant and offers views of the water meadows and Salisbury Cathedral.
If after all this fine food and indulgence, you can't bear the thought of leaving, Grasmere beckons you to stay the night in one of its 36 en-suite bedrooms and explore the beautiful and historic surrounding area.
