Food & Drink

Food and drink in Ullswater

Traditional pubs are more common than restaurants in the Lake District. However, many of them serve excellent cuisine. Whereas lamb and Cumberland sausage are two of the more common local specialties, a wide variety of other meat, fish, and vegetarian options are readily available.

If you're staying at a vacation rental and want to cook your own food in the kitchen or on an outdoor grill, then there are plenty of shops around with supplies. While the farm shop at Stainton has excellent local produce, Patterdale Village Store may be closer and stocks all the essentials. For more barbecue supplies, Ullswater Garage has a handy supply of gas and other bits and pieces.
