I know it’s the Lake District, but believe it or not we can have beautiful summers! If you’ve read the last blog from our Chef, you’ll know we have launched a rather tasty “summer” terrace menu here at the Beech Hill Hotel. We are also thinking about an evening barbeque menu that we will run mainly on Friday and Saturday nights during the summer. I know we’ll need the weather on our side but honestly, we do have some great days (and nights!)
The terrace is the perfect place for this because it’s in full sun right through the afternoon and stays in the sun until it goes down, sometimes as late as 10 o’clock! Plenty of time then to kick back with a cocktail and something fresh off the Barbie!
Check us out on facebook where you’ll see that some of you have already told us about some of your favourite dishes of all time! Our chef has seen some really unusual ones and it’s great to see the different combinations people put together!
We’d love to hear what it is you enjoy most when its cooked on the BBQ, personally, I don’t think you can go to far wrong with line caught sea bass, cooked with fresh herbs, a wedge of lemon and just a little butter, put everything in a simple foil parcel and wait for perfection! I think I’ve just decided what’s for dinner this evening!
So follow us on facebook, leave us as many ideas as you like and give your idea of the “perfect” Barbeque! You never know, you could end up reading someone’s favourite dish and cooking it yourself, enjoy!

The Quirky Traveller (a.k.a. Zoe Dawes) and Britain’s Best Travel Blogger 2011 came to the Beech Hill Hotel to experience our Gourmet & Wine Tasting Night in March this year and she very kindly blogged about her experience of the Hotel and the Event:
“It was the quacking that woke me up … and pulling back the curtains I found a handful of ducks chuntering around on the grass outside the bedroom. Looking up, it was the view that really caught my attention. Lake Windermere spread out her long arms to embrace flirty yachts, wooded banks and distant fells…….”

If your interested in our Gourmet & Wine Tasting Night we are hosting another one on Friday 30th September 2011 to see further details including the menu ‘click here’
Our thanks go out to Zoe for putting here experience on paper so to speak!

Summer’s here and we have a great new Lounge and Terrace menu in full swing. This summer in the Lake District promises to be a hot one and here at the Beech Hill we have the perfect place to enjoy it! For those of you who haven’t yet experienced our fantastic lake view terrace, what are you waiting for?!
Take some time to look through our website and gallery and check out our latest special offers, many include dinner in our award winning restaurant. I use fresh, local produce throughout all my menus and the whole dining experience is one to remember!
With the new Terrace menu I have retained some of the favourites, but brought in some, soon to be, classics!
Here’s a small a taster;
Succulent Fell bred Steak & Smoked Stilton Burger-with caramelised onions, watercress & dill pickle.
Crispy Parma Ham & Sage Croquettes- with beetroot puree & mustard sauce.
Deep-fried Whitebait – homemade dill tartar sauce, smooth mushy pea dip.
Rustic Farmhouse Ham Terrine –served with hot crusty bread, homemade piccalilli, & ketchup.
Hot-chocolate Fondue- Shortbread & meringue soldiers, homemade mint marshmallow & English strawberries.
There’s plenty more where these came from – but you’ll have to come and try them for yourselves!
Have a great summer, and I hope to see you soon!
