Imagine relaxing in the dining room of a Georgian rectory overlooking Ruskin’s View while a three-AA-rosette chef from a boutique hotel serves you a specially created six-course tasting menu.
This exclusive experience can be yours if you get first in the queue. Tickets are now on sale for Taste Cumbria Kirkby Lonsdale’s first ever pop-up restaurant on Saturday 14 April. Hosted by Oli Martin, head chef at Hipping Hall, it takes place at the rectory behind St Mary’s Church, with its famous view over the Lune Valley. “I do not know in my country a place more naturally divine,” wrote the Victorian art critic and philosopher John Ruskin of the scene, which was painted by JMW Turner.
The six-course tasting menu will be matched with specially paired wines and feature local and foraged ingredients. Tickets are extremely limited: less than 20 are available. Now sold out.
