Places to eat in Cockermouth

With an AA Rosette and Visit England Gold Award under its belt, The Trout Hotel has been classed among the best places to eat in Cockermouth and the surrounding area.

Unlike any other restaurant in Cockermouth, The Trout Hotel gives you the choice of either dining in the lavish Derwent Restaurant, feasting in the stylish Terrace Bistro or eating in one of our comfortable stone walled lounges. Each setting offers something a little different – from an exemplary menu that present a fine dining option without the price tag, to comforting homemade dishes and snacks. In the evening, the Lounge Bar is the place to head for a pre-dinner cocktail or to share a bottle of wine with friends. Choosing where to eat in Cockermouth has never been easier.

Here at The Trout Hotel, the emphasis is not only on the food – but rather on the inclusive dining experience. You’ll find classic dishes paired with modern dining accompanied by stylish interiors and welcoming faces. We’re proud offer the very best local produce that emphasise the Cumbrian farming tradition that has affectionately shaped the Lake District.

Choosing the best places to eat in Cockermouth

After recently being recognised with an AA Rosette for outstanding quality, the Derwent Restaurant has further cemented itself as one of the best restaurants in Cockermouth.

The flavoursome dishes range from perfectly roasted monkfish with aubergines to a succulent duckling breast accompanied by gratin potatoes, alongside the restaurant’s signature Chateaubriand steak for two people. Mouth watering flavours, lovely textures and a good helping of Lakeland passion combine to produce one of the best plates of food imaginable.

In keeping with its evergreen aim to present the finest Lake District cuisine, all the The Trout Hotel’s seasonal menus are delicately put together in order to showcase some of the best local produce. But perhaps the thing that our visitors cherish the most is the hospitality they received from the team – many of whom have served at the hotel for a number of years.

Dining is very important to us at The Trout Hotel and we’d be delighted to help you find the best places to eat in Cockermouth.
