"Weve used lock down as an opportunity to prepare, to devise new dishes and to train our team in new procedures, all to ensure we can deliver the same high standards we are known for."
Simon Rogan’s Henrock Restaurant and Henrock Lounge & Conservatory at Linthwaite House has now reopened and is providing a popular range of socially distanced dining experiences, including dinner, Sunday Lunch, afternoon tea and all-day dining options, alongside the hotel re-opening for overnight guest stays from the 31st July.
Following Henrock’s closure in March, the team reopened with a unique pop-up terrace experience on the 09th July to usher in a return to a full array of dining experiences later in the month.
During lockdown itself executive chef Tom Barnes working alongside Simon Rogan set to work devising new menus for guests to enjoy as they take in the stunning views from this unique vantage point.
Simon and Tom hope their guests will agree their time has been well spent as dining makes a welcome return.
Dinner is served at the main restaurant; starters include a salad of ‘Our Farm Beetroots’, smoked eel, goat’s curd and wasabi. Mains include roast fillet of hake, Comté crumb, curried cauliflower, shrimp, and lemongrass. Desserts include wattleseed custard, apple compote, gingerbread, and anise hyssop.
Henrock’s Sunday Lunch makes a welcome return too, serving up two or three courses on a hyperlocal a la carte menu with produce coming from Simon’s Our Farm just a few miles away from the restaurant. Dishes include smoked salmon blini with whipped cod’s roe and salted cucumber, aged short-rib beef with horseradish sauce, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and seasonal vegetables from Our Farm, chocolate fondant with vanilla Anglaise.

An all-day menu includes snacks and small plates like smoked mackerel pâté with grilled sourdough, venison hotdog with chicory jam, red cabbage, and meadow sweet crème brûlée with raspberry.
Henrock’s afternoon tea is something of a treat to savour, served seven days a week. Guests can enjoy a selection of sandwiches with seasonal ingredients and herbs from Our Farm, homemade scones served with all the trimmings and delicious sweet treats to round off proceedings, including Raspberry Sablé Breton with Vanilla Cream.
The beautiful Bar at Linthwaite House serves up Henrock’s signature cocktails, alongside an array of popular classics. Drinks include elderflower spritz, made with Lakes Gin, foraged elderflower syrup, prosecco, and soda, or there’s our version of a lemon verbena daiquiri, made with infused rum, lemon verbena and lime and for those behind the wheel we have a selection of mocktails, including our refreshing anise hyssop and strawberry cooler made with fresh strawberries and anise hyssop from Simon’s Our Farm.
Simon Rogan remarked: ‘’We’ve used lock down as an opportunity to prepare, to devise new dishes and to train our team in new procedures, all to ensure we can deliver the same high standards we are known for and to be able to welcome our guests back safely. Being able to welcome diners back brings the place back to life, ultimately restaurants and hotels are about people, about interactions, about sharing. Obviously, there are restrictions in place but seeing people back at Henrock at Linthwaite enjoying our food against this stunning Lakeland backdrop is a great feeling.’’
