New Surrounds, New Chef, New Food…

We are gearing up for an exciting re-launch of Porto Restaurant

Our award winning restaurant has new decor, longer opening hours, a bigger kitchen, a new head chef and a new menu, all designed to  broaden our appeal so more can enjoy our hospitality.

Porto will be closed from 12th June for these changes and reopen, completely refreshed, on Friday 7th of July

The new menu will continue to use the best ingredients from Cumbria’s local larder and will include many of the restaurant’s signature A la Carte dishes, but there are also many new classic additions to offer you more choice.

Come for a leisurely lunch or pop in for a sandwich. Joining us for dinner? Choose either a 3-course celebratory meal or just a quick bite to eat. You will thoroughly relax into the warm and friendly atmosphere created by the new decor at Porto, in cool grey and green, inspired by the surrounding Lake District. Or why not enjoy sunny al fresco drinking & dining with our newly improved and furnished roof top terrace.

Spearheading the changes is new chef Slav Miskiewicz,  aged 31, a protégé of legendary chef Steven Doherty, the former head chef at Le Gavroche, who moved to the Lake District and kick-started the gastro-pub scene.

View his new range of a la carte and special set sample menus here. Available from July 7th.
