Dining at Lairbeck
The Dining Room is open exclusively to residents. With its ornate, pierced-plaster leaf cornices, crystal chandelier and magnificent Victorian sideboard, it looks out on to a charming, secluded garden.

Dining Room

Breakfast is included in the price of your accommodation. We offer a wide choice, including the full Cumbrian ' Lairbeck Grill ', poached manx kippers, fresh fruit, cereals, warm croissants etc. We source locally wherever possible and our local free range eggs by Wilsons of Embleton are very popular. Breakfast service starts at 8.15 and finishes at 9.15 every day. Dinner is served from 6.30 pm onwards, with last orders taken at 8.00 pm. Our table d'hôte dinners offer exceptional value. The menus change daily and are carefully designed and well-balanced. The meals are complemented by a list of sensibly-priced, good quality wines and a wide choice of drinks from the licensed bar.
With advance notice, we are able to cater for most special dietary requirements.

At breakfast and at dinner, you will experience the highest standards of traditional cuisine, for which Lairbeck has built an excellent reputation. Our Dining Awards reflect the care we take in the selection, preparation and serving of every meal, using fresh, local produce whenever possible.

Guests may book for bed and breakfast only or dinner, bed and breakfast at the time of reservation. Dinner is not guaranteed to be available unless confirmed at initial booking. There will be some periods when dinner will not be served because there are no (or very few) confirmed advance bookings for dinner on a particular night. This is entirely unavoidable for a hotel of our size which offers a choice of B & B or dinner B & B tariffs. On these occasions we can recommend one of the numerous restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance of Lairbeck.

A typical dinner menu is shown on the right. If you book dinner at the time you reserve your room, you will save £4.00 per dinner on the standard price of £29.00 (including coffee and chocolates). Special break discounts are available for most stays of four days or more. For full details of prices, please refer to our Tariff page.
