With a fascinating history as a centre of the spice trade, Cumbrian cuisine has a rich heritage, and local specialities have long included exotic spices with favourites such as Cumberland sausage, potted shrimps, Grasmere gingerbread, and of course, sticky toffee pudding. At Gilpin there are two restaurants celebrating this tradition.
The laid-back ‘Gilpin Spice’ has an open kitchen serving tapas-style pan-Asian dishes inspired by countries along the spice trail – spanning the Philippines, the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan and China.

DIFFICULTY FINDING AVAILABILITY?
Please note that the restaurants are really busy at the moment, and if no availability is showing then this does mean that we’re fully booked, please don’t call to double check as we see exactly what you see! There tends to be more availability for lunch (at Gilpin Spice), so please do check that.
We will be welcoming Gilpin vouchers once again from 21st June 2021, and all vouchers that could not be used because of the pandemic have been automatically extended to March 2022
We do rely on reservations being honoured by our guests or sufficient notice being given of any changes, and respectfully ask that 48 hours’ notice be given should you wish to change or cancel your booking. Cancellations or amendments within 48 hours of the reservation time will incur a fixed per person charge* being made to the credit/debit card given at the time of booking (no deposit is taken prior). However, if we are able to resell your table we will of course refund the full amount.
*Cancellation charges: HRiSHi dinner £75pp; HRiSHi afternoon tea £25pp; Gilpin Spice £40pp
PRE BOOKING FOR RESIDENT GUESTS
Our restaurants currently have limited capacity, and do get full, so we strongly recommend booking your dining times with us prior to your arrival.
We are sorry, our restaurant HRiSHi is currently closed to non resident guests.
“Though the food is fine dining, there is zero pretentiousness”
