Local Cuisines In Hawkshead

Hawkshead village has a great choice of traditional pubs and restaurants to eat as well as quaint tea rooms and cafés for lunches. The brand new Billys Barr & Restaurant is now open at The Croft site in Hawkshead and offers great meals all day round.

Elsewhere in Hawkshead there are two other good pubs, The Queens Head Inn and The Red Lion, as well as Poppi Red which is open for lunches and pizzas in the evenings.

Slightly further afield there are some great options in Ambleside (10-15 minutes drive) for other cuisines. Zeffirellis is a fabulous vegetarian and vegan award winning restaurant in a contemporary venue. They also offer Movie deals with their cinema next door with prices from £19.95 for a pizza or pasta meal and an early movie showing or a two course meal and cinema ticket in the evenings at £28.95 pp. 

For finer dining we are spoilt for choice in the Lake District with eight Michelin Star restaurants within a 30 minute drive of Hawkshead, including the world famous L’Enclume at Cartmel one of only nine 3* Michelin Restaurants in the UK. Pre-booking for these amazing restaurants is essential so we highly recommend getting in early to avoid disappointment.
