Resident Dining

B&B with best breakfast, teatime treats & fine dining

While staying with us as a guest at Winder Hall, our unique and intimate country house B&B near Cockermouth in the Lake District, we love to treat you to really fine dining every day. From exceptional breakfasts (see our fabulous reviews on brekkies!) to delicious evening dining, we will ensure you never go hungry! There’s a personal touch about Winder, and you are welcome to pop your head into the kitchen to see what’s going on! We always love a chat, although excuse us if we don’t have so long to linger when we’re full steam ahead preparing your feast!


Breakfast is a leisurely affair, served from 8.30-9.30. Even if you’re keen to be away into the hills, a good breakfast will set you up for the day… and possibly make you linger in the dining room for a little longer than you’d planned. The Quality of our ingredients and plenty of choice make for a good breakfast. Just imagine this…

Freshly-brewed coffee, freshly-squeezed orange juice, fruit salad, home-cured bacon, Winder Hall sausage, perhaps gently poached smoked haddock, not forgetting the freshest free-range eggs from our own hens… sometimes you can even pop down and collect them yourself if you would enjoy to!

Complimentary Tea and Homemade Cake

As a guest at Winder Hall, we love to offer you complimentary tea or coffee and delicious home baked cakes. Often guests have said this is their favourite moment in the day! Enjoy this at your leisure once you have settled in, and if staying for longer you can look forward to this every day you are with us. Relax in the lounge in front of our roaring log fire, or on sunnier days take it on the terrace overlooking the stunning Lake District fells that surround us.

We are strong believers in quality and we can guarantee that it will have been made fresh in our own kitchen, just the way it should be. Teatime is a tradition worth hanging on to!

Evening Dining in our Restaurant

We are passionate about our food,  and from the moment you enter, you are made to feel at home by our warm, friendly and attentive team.

The evening begins in the lounge, where we serve you with a few tasty nibbles to set your appetite, which you can enjoy with a drink if you would like to order one from the bar. You are then welcomed into our luxurious oak panelled restaurant. There’ll be a cosy log fire on cooler days, and wonderful views of the garden and fells beyond. All of our food is locally sourced where possible. Click here to take a look at our latest menu.

After enjoying your dinner, we welcome you back into the lounge to relax for a little longer. Order a cafetiere of coffee or leaf tea & enjoy a bit of homemade fudge! Take a look here at our seasonal menu (subject to small changes according to availability!)

Chef works pretty hard so we like to give him a nigh off now and again, this means the dining room is closed one or two nights a week, please call to check availability.

Packed Lunches

We would be delighted to make you a packed lunch to take out with you if you are exploring further afield in the area (£5.00 per head).
