Food

Food is at the heart of what we offer at The Malabar and it starts as soon as you arrive. A complimentary afternoon tea is served in the dining room once you are settled in; choose from a selection of 12 loose leaf teas and enjoy sandwiches, scones and a selection of small pastries and cake in the lounge, around the dining table or outside on the terrace.

On Mondays to Thursdays we offer a supper of homemade soup, Graham’s bread, salad, a beautiful selection of cured meats from Stonehouse Smokery and a sweet treat. Choose your wine or beer from our excellent honesty bar selection. This is an informal meal which we lay out for you at your own table in the dining room at around 7:30pm (£35 for two excluding drinks).

On Fridays we offer a set 3-course menu which is served around a large communal table in the dining room (£30 per person excluding drinks).

Breakfast is served in the dining room at a time that best suits you. 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. An alternative to a Full English is our Cumbrian Fell breakfast that includes wild boar bacon and venison sausages. 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.
