We had a fantastic evening. We have eaten in some top restaurants over the years both at home and abroad, but last night was one, if not the best ever. The food, from the canapes right through to the dessert was just AMAZING - beautifully presented, clever mixes of ingredients, often with subtle spices running through, but always letting the main ingredient shine through. The service hits just the right balance of efficient but friendly and relaxing. Best thing we ate? Really hard to say as it was all so good, but the little "shepherds pie" served with the lamb main course probably take the prize. They were just bursting with intense lamb flavour. Each dessert was picture perfect and tasted every bit as good as they looked. A fine end to the meal. Great wine list too and not silly mark up. Thank you all at The Gilpin. We will be back for sure.

Four of us enjoyed delicious afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings and would gladly recommend this experience to anyone. The service was superb and attention to detail second to none.

Food was very good. Rather small portions for a 3 couse dinner.

A very different dining experience, when I booked lunch at the Gilpin I expected to be in the main restaurant but just 2 weeks before our booking I received a call to inform me that lunch was now only available at the "very new" Gilpin Spice. As we were keen to sample the Gilpin's delights on our sojourn in the Lakes, I of course said yes! This restaurant delights all of the senses from the dramatic garden design through to the restaurant and finally the oh! so! tempting menu. With friendly, informative guidance from the staff, we enjoyed the most flavoursome meal which was all about taste and not heat! Will consider returning even though after leaving positive comments and a generous tip we had to find our own coats!!!!!! Would have given 5 stars but for this, please remember service is everything, if the chef has an off day tomorrow may be be better, but poor service is inexcusable! You are not McDonald's!!
