The Team have been celebrating recently after receiving a glowing review on Jamie Oliver’s renowned website – jamieoliver.com

Our apprentice-run fine dining restaurant, housed in Kendal’s oldest building, recently enjoyed a personal visit from Jim Tanfield, Jamie’s Web Editor, after he heard about our unique eatery’s fast-growing reputation for exceptional food.

Jim indulged in a lavish eight course tasting menu of Cumbria’s finest produce and has bestowed high praise on the Castle Dairy’s building, our food, our Head Chef and his young team.

On jamieoliver.com, which receives around 26,000,000 page views internationally each month, Jim described the building as “Ancient, 600 years old and beautiful, the oldest in town, with a preserved bedroom and listed four-poster bed to boot. It’s full of nooks and crannies, priest holes and wonky walls and really feels like a trip back to Ye Olde England, absolutely gorgeous.”

The Castle Dairy recently reopened its doors following the addition of a brand new state of the art kitchen and praise on such a famous foodie website is a huge boost for our staff.

Robert Marshall-Slater, Head of Culinary Arts at for Kendal College, which runs the Castle Dairy, said:

“We are absolutely overwhelmed at this review and so, so proud of Robert Stacey and his wonderful team.  We really hope this inspires those that haven’t yet experience the Castle Dairy to come and try it for themselves.”
