Established as one of the friendliest luxury hotels Windermere has to offer, we take it upon ourselves to pick out the very best bars and restaurants for our guests to enjoy. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. So here’s our review of chocolate heaven, which can be found right on our luxury hotel doorstep…

If you’re a fan of chocolate then look no further than the fabulous Choccobar. It has five-stars on TripAdvisor and hundreds of amazing reviews, so we went to see what all the fuss was about – now we understand!

Choccobar is a relaxed little coffee shop, just a twenty-minute walk from the Suites, where chocolate lovers will be in absolute heaven! Their original hot chocolate is so luxuriously thick it even comes with fruit to dip in, a side of fresh whipped cream and a lady finger sponge to reach the bottom of the glass! Choose from a range of different chocolate flavours – from amaretto, to chilli, to coconut or even custard and cream.  There are over 20 fantastic flavours to choose from!

The waffles at Choccobar are out of this world. Take your pick from a selection of toppings on their light and fluffy homemade Belgian waffles. A personal favourite of mine is the banana and Cartmel sticky toffee sauce – it’s the ultimate form of indulgence!

If you’re a fan of strawberries, then look no further – Choccobar have a variety of strawberry-topped waffles paired with a choice of cream, ice cream and Nutella.

One of the best things about Windermere is its fantastic selection of bars and restaurants. At Windermere Suites, we love discovering the best places to go to recommend to our lovely guests. We understand that with so much choice, it can be hard to decide where to go – so we work hard to ensure you can make the most of your time at our luxury hotel in the Lakes!

We recently visited The Pig Windermere ­– what a treat! With a menu specialising in all things pork, we couldn’t resist paying it a visit. Their classic British menu focuses on fresh, local produce and pork in all its forms.

We highly recommend the ‘Pig Feast’ pizza, and by looking at reviews on their TripAdvisor – it seems as though there are plenty of others who would agree with us! Think of a homemade pizza base topped with sucking pig, smoked ham, pigs in blankets, tomato base, mozzarella and fresh herbs. And yes, it does taste as good as it sounds!

luxury hotel

If you’re not a fan of pork, or you’re a vegetarian, don’t worry – there are plenty of other options available with a menu designed to suit all tastes. The Pig pride themselves on their selection of Gluten Free options too, so they really do have something for everyone. The warm goat’s cheese salad with oven roasted mixed beets, vine tomatoes, sautéed potatoes and chargrilled peppers looked to die for!

luxury hotel

To wash down your meal, The Pig also have a wonderful selection of drinks in their bar. Our favourite by far was the ‘Skinny Champagne’ – more bubbles, less calories. What more could you ask for?!

Our luxury hotel is located less than a 5-minute walk from The Pig, so we’re in prime location to satisfy all your pork-loving needs, without having to worry about driving anywhere!

Next time you stay with us, don’t forget to ask for a recommendation – we love being able to share all of our favourite places with you.

We love that Windermere is full of so many amazing restaurants and bars. Over the years we have come to collect a few absolute favourites – and Hooked is definitely one of them. A delightful little seafood restaurant that’s just two-minutes away from our luxury bed & breakfast Windermere is certainly the place to stay for great food!

Hooked prides itself on having the freshest and tastiest seafood in town, with flavours and influences from the Mediterranean, South East Asia and Australasia. The seasonal menu changes daily depending on availability of their fresh seafood, so you’re in for a treat any time you go.

You can expect lots of local specialities at Hooked, some of my personal favourites are the Morecambe Bay potted shrimps, and the whole roasted seabass. Everything is packed full of flavour and a real treat for the taste buds.

Everything that appears on your plate at Hooked is made with pride and passion by their fabulous chefs. It doesn’t have to end with your main course though – Hooked have a fabulous selection of tempting desserts. Their vanilla panna cotta truly is something special, if you’re a desert lover then you have to try it!

luxury hotel

For any seafood fans – you have to make Hooked your must-visit restaurant during your stay at our luxury bed & breakfast Windermere. Booking is recommended at Hooked, due it to being a small (and very popular!) bistro.

If you don’t believe us, Hooked is rated in top 5 restaurants in Windermere on TripAdvisor! It has also appeared on The Telegraph Travel and The Culture Trip’s Best Lake District Restaurants – so don’t just take our word for it!
