The Gaddum Restaurant and Brockhole Cafe

Step through the original doorway of Brockhole House and make yourself at home at The Gaddum

You will be welcomed into the original hallway with its panelled walls, a classic Arts & Crafts staircase, beamed ceiling, and a solid oak floor before being invited to sit and relax in the lounge. Choose the window seat for stunning views or cosy up by the log burner and enjoy a relaxing drink while you consider the menu - think attentively created locally inspired dishes, the finest teas and handmade patisseries.

Then, enter The Gaddum Restaurant. The Gaddum was inspired by some of Brockhole's original features, its Arts & Crafts heritage and the Movement's ‘founding father’, William Morris, here you will be very well looked after by our specialist front of house team who can guide you through our lunch and afternoon menu options.

The Gaddum enjoys stunning views across the Mawson designed gardens and over Windermere towards the Langdales. We can promise you a relaxing dining experience at The Gaddum, featuring seasonal ingredients grown fresh from the garden of Brockhole House and crafted right here at The Gaddum by our Head Chef, Gerald van der Walt and his team.
