Dining Out In The Lake District – Oaks Restaurant
CUMBRIAN PRODUCE WITH A FRENCH TWIST
Our kitchen is headed by accomplished executive chef Sharon Elders. The 42-year-old award-winner from Morecambe, who has worked at several restaurants including Longlands Hotel in Lancaster, The Pines Hotel in Chorley and Lucy’s in Ambleside, was once Lisa Allen’s boss when the Great British Menu winner was just starting out. She passed on words of wisdom to her and encouraged her to go for what she wanted.
Today, she is doing the same with her team in the kitchen at Broadoaks. Much of her menu celebrates local produce from across Lancashire and the Lake District.
“I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up in Lancashire & Cumbria, regularly walking through the dominating landscapes, past the produce we use in our kitchen and appreciating the preservation of rural standards and sustainability. Working alongside the rest of the team at Broadoaks, we have carefully selected our suppliers with this influence in mind, ensuring we find guaranteed local produce from suppliers who are genuinely focused on delivering the highest quality whilst not compromising on welfare and assured standards.
The dining experience in Oaks Brasserie aims to encapsulate our ‘Fusion’ ethos, combining modern French fine dining classics with our own Cumbrian favourites. Our Dinner experience starts with nibbles in the music room ….. we look forward to seeing you”.
Our 4-course Gourmet dinner menu is served from 7pm each evening
