Honest Food by the Honest Lawyer

We are Special

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.

Themed Nights

Every month, we hold themed nights at Honest Lawyer in the hope of introducing you new and exciting dishes from around the world.

There is usually a taster menu of at least 5 dishes and each one is explained to the customer – from how it’s cooked to the traditional way of eating it.

Starting from £20pp, keep an eye out on our Facebook page for the latest updates.






A Midweek Treat

Our Midweek Offer is the perfect way to enjoy the elegant and relaxed atmosphere of the Honest Lawyer for a little less.

Every Tuesday to Thursday, join us for two courses for £22 or two vegetarian courses for £18.

You might be in west Cumbria on a business trip, want to celebrate a special occasion or just don’t want to clean the dishes tonight. We’ll make sure that you are truly looked after in our restaurant in Cockermouth.

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!
