We have run The Lamplighter since I was 5 with my dad being a classically trained chef. We love food & drink & are always looking for new things & to evolve those that are old. We are in the enviable position that our work is our hobby.
I was born into the hospitality industry and have a true passion for every aspect of it with customer service being an absolute focus and to share both mine and my teams passion for food and beverage with our valued guests.
The whole of The Lake District is one giant play ground or so my children tell me. Water sports, extreme sports, a long walk on a beautiful autumn day. The relaxed pace, the stunning scenery, the amazing food and beverage available. Take your pick!
