We are committed to serving ethically produced and wherever possible, locally sourced food, which is within it's season. All chicken and eggs are free range, we know the provenance of all the meat that we use and the sustainability of the fish. We are extremely fortunate to live in an area that has not only excellent local produce but also excellent suppliers, amongst these are Higginson's, award winning butchers from Grange and Farrer's of Kendal, who supply our coffee and teas.
The menu and service at lunchtime is less formal than dinner. It isn't necessary to make a booking and food is ordered at the bar. We have a wide range of food, examples of which can be seen in the menu on the left. Sandwiches are large and served "Famous Five" style wrapped in greaseproof paper, excellent after a long walk with a bowl of home made chips and a pint of one of Barngates own beers. Other examples include Grilled Barnsley Chop, champ mash, peas and broad beans with mint and apple jelly, also smoked salmon and mackerel pate, pickled cucumber and sour dough toast.
Revervations are taken for dinner and the menu and service is more formal than lunchtime. Dinner is served on plain oak tables, with white linen napkins and Robert Welch cutlery. The bread that is served with dinner is made in the kitchen that afternoon and is quite simply delicious.
