This stunning restaurant with rooms is situated near the historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale and the spectacular Ingleton Waterfalls, it’s ideal for those wishing to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
I’ve been visiting this place for almost 10 years now and it’s still just as good (if not better) than it was when I first visited.
One of my biggest bugbears in life is a lack of attention to detail and it’s apparent that detail is high up on owner Andrew Wildsmith’s agenda as he and his team strive for the best. As far as I’m concerned they achieve it time and time again.
During my most recent visit I stayed in the newly opened Old Stables. The rooms, just like the main part of Hipping Hall, are luxurious and comfortable and although you wouldn’t describe them as state of the art, it’s obvious that a lot of thought has gone into the design.
As for the food, it’s superb! Yet again that attention to detail and determination to produce the best shines through, whether it’s the main course or the amuse-bouche, it’s a consistent treat on your taste buds! It’s difficult to recommend a particular dish (or dishes) but scallops and chocolate fondant have always been personal favourites when on the menu.
I’ve been fortunate enough to visit some extremely luxurious hotels and restaurants during my lifetime and the only thing that baffles me in relation to Hipping Hall is why it hasn’t been awarded a Michelin star.
