The Forest Side - Grasmere, Cumbria #MichelinStar

Update: The Forest Side has been awarded its first Michelin star in the 2017 guide. 

I first visited Chef Kevin Tickle’s The Forest Side back in April (here) and have been keen to return ever since. On my last visit, I enjoyed the 10 course “Grand 'Un’’ tasting menu – this time we opted for the 6 course “L’Al ‘Un”.



This time we went with even higher expectations and I’m pleased to report, they were met… with bells on!

Carrot & black pudding


Pea wafer – grated hen’s yolk, cured ham emulsion


Heritage tomatoes cooked in elderflower – goats curd & caviar

Lemon sole – Morecambe Bay shrimps, pickled new season girolles

Raspberry – verbena pearls, yogurt



English blueberries – sorrel & goats milk



Sour cherry – sweet cheese & rosehip
