Restaurant and Bar

All guests enjoy a good choice of hot and cold food at breakfast time with choices changing on a daily basis. Examples include a traditional Cumbrian breakfast, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a range of imaginative vegetarian options.

Dinner is served every day apart from Wednesdays and must be booked as all meals are cooked to order. Like breakfast, all dishes are prepared fresh with the finest local ingredients. Guests can choose from a wide range of drinks with their meal and if they want a drink at any other time, there is a well-stocked honesty bar that can be used at any time of day.

Additional Facilities and Services

Grizedale Lodge is a great choice of accommodation for walkers and cyclists as it is close to a number of fantastic cycling and walking trails. After a day on the fells, walkers can hose down their muddy boots and cycles and can also use a drying room free-of-charge for all their wet gear. As well as being able to provide discounts for cycle hire, Grizedale Lodge can also provide discounts to Go Ape, the UK’s number one forest outdoor activity centre.
