"Expect the unexpected, food that is fresh, clean, creative & seasonal....."
...with a little bit of magic and a whole lot of love, Craig has an uncanny way of elevating simple, humble ingredients into mind-blowingly delicious dishes. It's more than just a meal, it's an experience to be savoured. A celebration of local seasonal produce, you're as likely to find locally landed lobster on the menu, as you are freshly foraged herbs.

We'll look after you from the moment you arrive until we must send you on your way, well fed and full of Cumbrian hospitality and happiness.....until of course, you return to your little haven of relaxation and joy.
GIN BAR OPEN DAILY FROM 3PM SATURDAY FROM 12noon When you walk up the well trodden front steps to arrive in gin heaven, you relax in an instant as you're welcomed and greeted as a friend. Soak up the surroundings, take a look through our amazing choice of gins, wine, beer and spirits, allow Sophie to create a delicious cocktail, just for you! You don't have to be dining to enjoy drinks at Virginia House, but if you are, then prepare to taste some of the most fabulous food you've ever experienced, from Craig's Kitchen.
Chef Patron (Downstairs Boss)
Born in Lancaster in August 1976, with 25 years experience it's clear that Craig's natural passion and flair is for cooking, although his guilty pleasure is for Scalextric slot cars, a past-time harking back to his childhood days and carefree times of joy!
Co-Owner (Upstairs Boss)
Louise is mum to the couple's 3 daughters Sophie, Georgia and Lilian. Aside to keeping everyone in check and dealing with the day to day running of the business, Louise enjoys taking time out to practise Pilates and enjoys crocheting (and gin!)
Tony has worked all over South Cumbria and the Lake District and has honed his hospitality skills to near perfection. We're certain that if you cut Tony in two he'd have VH running through the middle! When he's not working, Tony enjoys touring classic car shows.
