Honest Food by the Honest Lawyer

Please note: Due to severe staff shortages and produce availability issues, we are only able to run the Bistro menu until further notice.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask that you please bear with us during this difficult time.

Eat in historic surroundings

Set in the heart of the Western Lake District, Honest Lawyer restaurant occupies a magnificent Grade II listed building that was previously the town’s old courthouse cells. Many Tudor inspired original features have survived the years, making it the perfect setting for a truly unique dining experience in one of the most enchanting locations imaginable.

Once you have descended down the stone carved stairway and walked across the river side balcony to the lilting sound of the River Cocker, a warm Cumbrian welcome awaits you in our Cockermouth restaurant.

Takeaway Service

We now offer a takeaway service which consist of tasty and healthy meals.

Known as Honestly Healthy Foods, we promise to deliver fresh, tasty meals that aren’t full of additives and grease…and a few cheat ones too!

You can access the new Cockermouth Takeaway Service by clicking ‘Order Online’ button in the header of our website. Then simply choose your meals, select a collection or delivery time, and pay online easily.

Cumbria’s Finest

We love Cumbria. We love Cumbrian produce. We love promoting Cumbrian growth. That’s why we source all our ingredients locally and ensure that our commitment to the highest quality produce is seen on every inch of our menu.

Almost all of our meat, vegetables and pulses come from shops and farms within West Cumbria. We can therefore promise that you’ll be presented with the highest quality ingredients and the freshest possible dishes that we can trace right back to their origins. This is why we have been voted the “best restaurant in Cockermouth” on Trip Advisor, 2017!
