“Really genuinely superb food”
Review of Oaks Restaurant

Oaks Restaurant
Ranked #4 of 5 Restaurants in Troutbeck
Price range: US$47 - US$70
Cuisines: British
Description: Tranquil Troutbeck, away from the tourist traps of the Lake District, is where you���ll find the heavenly Broadoaks Country House and Oaks Restaurant. A typical Cumbrian house from outside, Oaks Restaurant is a traditional, warm space, decorated to a high standard with a nod to the past in its beams and swagged curtains. The award winning kitchen is Michelin recommended with a daily changing menu created to reflect the seasons and locally available produce. Thoroughly modern and imaginative, head chef Gareth Owen���s menus offer a taste of Britain with just a hint of Mediterranean flavour. A collection of simple signature dishes including steaks and delicious poached salmon have recently been added to the menu.

I should start off by saying I've also reviewed this restaurant as part of a review about the Broadoaks Country House (which I recommended). Relating purely to this restaurant I would simply say that it is marginally more expensive than I think it should be, as well as being a little overly formal, but..... the food is so so delicious (I am still thinking about it, 24 hours later) and the service is also excellent. So if you're a foody and would like to treat you and your partner to food that is a level above most other restaurants, then go here. I have given it 5 stars accordingly.

Evening meal with good ambience and very attentive staff. Chef deserves praise and credit for presentation and originality in the dishes served. Would be nice to see waiters serve from right and clear from left to avoid leaning across table, but very minor point and so easy to address.

Well cooked food and beautifully presented. Great choice for breakfast including a cooked to order 'Grill' - superb ! Evening meal was delightful, and delicious, couldn't fault a thing !! Service was attentive and friendly and nothing was too much trouble and was served in a relaxed atmosphere. Well recommended.

Excellent quality, and very accommodating. Great experience! Canapes, 3 courses and a palate cleaning melon sorbet. Service was exactly right. Dinner and drinks order was taken whilst we were eating canapes in the William Morris designed music room.
