Summer 2022

Summer Produce

As the end of July approaches, the bountiful summer season starts to come into fruition. Alan and Jean continue to supply an abundance for local produce from their garden in Watermillock, only 2 miles from the restaurant on the shores of Ullswater. The likes of strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants and jostaberrries are only a few of the goodies they pick of us! For those who don’t know, a jostaberry is a really interesting complex-cross fruit bush which originates from Germany, a cross between a gooseberry and a blackcurrant. These little purple-black berries are sweet and luscious when ripe and super versatile with high levels of pectin which is great for jams and preserves. I love that Alan & Jean, who are committed to supplying the freshest produce, continue to supply us for another year. It really is good feeling that we can still support local individuals and cheers to them for keeping our larder stocked!

1863 by day is evolving!

This summer welcomes the addition of our 5 course lunch menu. The 1863 experience you’ve come to love, showcasing the seasons produce in 5 courses!  You can now enjoy both our 3 course or 5 course lunch menus on more days too, with lunch now being served Friday – Sunday. Find out more and see the sample menus here.

Summer Break

With only a handful of services left before our summer break, its very much full steam ahead. Our last service will be on Monday 25th July, then the staff will enjoy a well-earned break, returning for dinner service on Thursday 4th August.

I look forward to seeing more familiar faces and meeting new ones over summer. I’ll be back writing in August and thinking of all things Autumn, until then, make the most of the weather.
