Expert review of Jerichos

A rare example of Cumbrian restaurant with rooms.

Jerichos, formerly at the Waverley, is the new base for Lakeland chef Chris Blaydes. The family-run restaurant moved to this Victorian townhouse in 2008 and added 10 boutique rooms.

The centrepiece of the business, however, remains the restaurant with its emphasis on fresh, local food.

The hands-on owners state their mantra is "to under-sell and over-deliver." I concur.

Location: 

Located on a quiet sidestreet running parallel to Main Road, the mian thoroughfare leading from Widermere train station to the centre of Bowness.

Bedrooms: 

The ten rooms, spread across two upstairs floors, are modern and quite stylised with a black-and-white motif.

They feel very modern, although the decor may put off more mature visitors.

Two rooms come with bath and shower, one is available as a single.

Public areas: 

The lounge-bar is very stylised with a faux-bookshelf wallpaper, high-level, white-leather stools and a hearth with a silver violin and saxophone.

Eating and drinking: 

Jerichos Restaurant is the key draw for dinner with years of top-level experience, locally sourced produce and a creative take on Modern British dishes – I enjoyed the marinated, corn-fed guinea fowl breast, served with creamed potatoes and roasted chorizo roots.

The dining space features lots of dark wood, black leather chairs and jazz-themed paintings on the wall.

Breakfast is fresh, home-cooked and tasty with homemade bread and lots of quality local goodies – try the Cartmel Valley smoked kippers. Grab a seat in the bay window, shrouded by red-velevt drapes, for the morning sun.

Service: 

Service is handled by the family. It's personal, confident but not overly fancy.

Who stays there: 

Foodies. This is a fod-led place. No pets or families; lots of return local business for dinner.

Price advice: 

Minimum two-night stay at weeeknds and three-day bank holidays.

Look out for occasional events hosted at the entrance, such as wine tasting, or cookery classes. Prices typically from £50 per person, including dinner.

Pros: 
Free WiFi
Restaurant open to non reisdents.
Cons: 
Decor needs to bed down
