Bess & Barrel Themed Menu Nights

Friday 19th November

We’re certainly missing the Bess & Barrel. So what better excuse do we need to get together with friends and family than to enjoy a themed night and bring the Bess & Barrel back for a special night before Christmas!

Friday 19th November will be an evening of tasting the finest ingredients the Lake District has to offer! The menu is available to view here (Taste the Lakes Menu 2021) and is £21.95pp for 2 courses or £25.95 for three courses

Tables are able to be booked from 6pm with the last booking at 8pm. Please email or call the office on 015395 58328 to book your table and place your pre-order. Please do let us know at the time of booking if there are any dietary requirements we should be aware of.

We look forward to opening up the Bess & Barrel doors once again – don’t worry though, it’ll all be indoors where the heat and light is!
