The Punch Bowl at Home: Delicious Lake District Food


30th April 2021

We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests the brand-new premium home delivery service from the award-winning Punch Bowl in Crosthwaite.

The Punch Bowl has developed a well-deserved reputation for its superb food, and now you can enjoy it in the comfort of Birkdale House thanks to the new ‘The Punch Bowl at Home’ delivery service. What’s more, this is not just for lockdown, this is all year round.

Three-Course Weekly Set Menu

The Punch Bowl at Home will offer a three-course weekly set menu for two. These mouth-watering meals are available for delivery on Friday each week and can be kept refrigerated for up to twenty-four hours. Why not spoil yourself when you’re staying with us and enjoy some beautifully prepared, indulgent seasonal dishes?

Your dishes will be carefully created and prepared by the team of chefs at the Punch Bowl and then delivered directly to your door. All you need to do is pop them in the oven. They even include a step-by-step guide to help you to finish preparing your meal. It really couldn’t be easier.

We’ve got a sneaky feeling that our guests will be enjoying these delicious Punch Bowl dishes in the comfort of Birkdale House long after lockdown ends.

On the Menu

The Punch Bowl in Crosthwaite offers a seasonally inspired, classic British and French menu with a focus on locally sourced Lake District ingredients wherever possible. The Punch Bowl farm at Mirk Howe provides some of the vegetables and of course Lake District lamb. Foraged ingredients found growing in the nearby countryside are also used. And for anything else, the Punch Bowl works with some of the region’s finest suppliers.

At the time of writing, the menu was:

Smoked Salmon, Dill and Lemon Paté

Honey Roast Confit Duck Leg in Cherry Sauce

Lyth Valley Damson and Frangipane Sponge

How It Works

If you’d like an indulgent evening in with one of the Punch Bowl at Home set menus, simply get in touch and we will arrange the delivery.

Price for a set menu for two is £65 with delivery charged at £6.50 per box.
