Food and drink

The really important things in life!

Derwentwater Independent Hostel has a reputation for excellent home baking and cooking. We also have a residential licence, with an interesting variety of wines, spirits and local ales. Please do not consume your own alcohol on-site.

Vegetarian options are always available and special dietary requirements, including Halal, gluten-free, and dairy-free, can be catered for with advance notice. 

Meal times are 7.30 to 9.00am for breakfast and 6.00pm or 7.00pm for the evening meal. However, we can often be flexible for groups: just let us know your requirements in advance. We can email you with the menu and our specials for the dates of your stay.

Please book breakfasts and packed lunches the night before. Please make your evening meal choices at least an hour before your sitting.

We aim to source our food, drink, and recipes locally, with local beers a speciality!

Click here for a sample menu. There are separate menus and prices for groups, which we can email to you.

Self catering

A fully equipped self-catering kitchen and dining area are also available. See our facilities page for details of the self-catering kitchen.
