Choose from two dining options at Laura Ashley The Belsfield.

Our carefully crafted menu offers a fusion of British and continental cuisine using the finest local produce. Expect the likes of Cumbrian rack of lamb with potato rosti or sea bream with violet crushed potato and Asian broth. Our selection of fine wines will complement your meal perfectly.
