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.
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.
