The Bistro

Opening October 2020

spacious atmospheric old threshing barn

I always dreamed of the beautiful barn being an amazing restaurant with a fantastic chef serving delicious seasonal meals and lets face it, no one could have possibly guessed the path 2020 would take us all… but here we are!

Opening October 2020

Running at least until March 2021, our spacious atmospheric old threshing barn can comfortably be host to meals for locals and guests alike. We are covid secure business and will ensure you feel as safe and welcome as possible for your evening at Blaithwaite Bistro in the barn.


Festive Menu

We may not be able to celebrate in the usual way but this is no excuse not to enjoy this time of year as you normally would! Come and enjoy a lovely Christmas meal with all the trimmings & with lots of added festive touches!

All Things Beef 11th December

What better time to celebrate British farming and fantastic local produce, and our beef doesn’t get any more local than this! Bred by William miller and family on the neighbouring High Aketon Farm and butchered by Tony Harrison Butchers – Cockermouth. The food miles are as low as can be and the standard couldn’t be any higher! So join us for a proper Cumbrian Steak night at the Bistro!
