Hearty fayre in the Lake District

The Lake District is home to fascinating lakeside Windermere delights, the Grasmere charm, and the rugged beauty of the Langdales, but has any one of you been to the bustling town of Keswick?

Not many folks know that there are plenty of fantastic places to head out and visit beyond the typically visited tourist trails of Lake District. Nearly invisible from the main roads winding along the Bassenthwaite shores is one of the most excellent traditional inns in the region.

The Pheasant has served bowls of happiness and hearty meals to both locals and visitors for more than 3 centuries and still going strong even after 300 years of continuous service. The place is the best choice if you enjoy settling down into cosy chairs after a long walk, right in front of an authentic log fire while sipping a proper pot of tea as you get yourself ready for a hearty evening meal.

The Pheasant also features a bar, where you can enjoy your favorite drink as you are taken back to hundreds of years, half expecting to share a conversation with the legendary John Peel, a well known The Pheasant regular centuries past.

A stay at The Pheasant is made complete by the astounding choice of fine dining food at the Fell Restaurant, where you can be spoilt eating great food while relishing a majestic view of the gardens, fells and forest at the back of the hotel. If you enjoy a more informal dining experience, you can get some at the Brasserie, the original restaurant of the hotel.

If you have the chance, just turn left and revel in one of the most understated gems of Lake District, the historical town of Cockermouth which is right up the A66 route. Here you can find a large number of shops and small businesses that carry arty treasures, such as in the 14th century Percy House.
