"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. Join us at Craig's Kitchen for fabulous food whether you take us up on our Early Bird / Pre Theatre Offer of 2 Courses for £22 including a drink, or you'd prefer a more leisurely meal dining from our Brasserie Menu, sampling plenty of Craig's delicious dishes with our Tasting Menu or maybe even a little 'Pre Meditated Indulgence' with Chateaubriand or Lobster Thermidor.....

After a long day at the office, or perhaps an exciting day sightseeing in the Lake District, you're thinking about where to stay in Ulverston. Think no more; from the Georgian grandeur of the ground floor, wind your way up to the cosy, homely sanctuary of our eight guest bedrooms at Virginia House. 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.
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 couples 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 the locality, 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.
Andrew has developed a wealth of experience in kitchens all over the country. With a relaxed disposition, Andy brings a quiet calm to the kitchen environment, and puts a lot of love into the food, which is reflected in the dishes that leave the pass.
