Food is at the heart of what we offer at The Malabar and it starts as soon as you arrive. Tea and scones are on offer in the lounge or garden once you are settled in; choose from a selection of 12 loose leaf teas and enjoy our peaceful surroundings.


From the spring to the winter we offer a seasonal 3-course set menu from Monday to Thursday for £30 per person; on a Friday its an Indian feast for £35 per person. Dinner is served at small candlelit tables in the dining room and should be booked ahead of your stay.


On Saturday evenings we can recommend many options either locally or further afield. There are two excellent choices in Sedbergh; The Black Bull has been renovated and restored to its former glory as a coaching inn and The Dalesman – our very cosy local pub with excellent food (pies recommended!)


Breakfast is served in the dining room between 8:30 and 9:30am; we offer our Malabar house blend loose-leaf tea, freshly ground coffee, traditional Indian lassi as well as seasonal juices, home made bread, porridge and granola with yoghurt and compote. Breakfast at The Malabar is a leisurely affair and you are welcome to linger around the table as long as you like and on warm days breakfast can be served outside in the garden.


Once a month on a Thursday evening during the winter we open up our dining room and share the sort of Indian home cooking we enjoyed during our years in Bombay. Two dozen guests share long tables dressed with candles and flowers and enjoy a relaxed 4-course seasonal-inspired set dinner. £35 per person plus an excellent selection of wine and craft beer.
