Restaurant and Bar

Award winning chef James Goodall heads up the team at Tweedies. Food can be enjoyed in the bar, or in the relaxed Lodge dining room, with the same menu available in both venues. Goodall is a passionate advocate of local and seasonal produce which features heavily on the exciting menus with dishes such as Bowland Steak, Wild Rabbit, and Cumbrian Mutton Hot Pot.

A unique feature of the Tweedies menu is the Sunday Sharers, where a good old fashioned roast dinner is served up just as it would at home, with the joint and sides placed in the middle of the table for everyone to help themselves.
