Our restaurant, The Music Room @ Augill Castle has been greeted with high acclaim since its re-launch in February 2022. We were judged as one of Cumbria’s top four restaurants in this year’s Cumbria Tourism Taste Cumbria awards with our tardiness in responding to customers’ online reviews being one of the few things that judges could find to criticise. Make of that what you will.
Our food is fresh, vibrant and full of flavours from around the world. We seek to marry the bold flavours and dishes which have influenced our cooking from our many travels with the finest local ingredients, bringing the world to Cumbria’s Eden valley.
Dinner is £40 for three courses, £32.50 for two.
