valentine's day

"All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt"

Today, many of us feel that Valentine's has turned in to a commercial craze of spending as much as you can on those people you care about.  

Here at the Middle Ruddings we believe spending quality time together is the most important thing you can offer.  And what better place to be than in the stunning Lake District, snuggled in front of the log fire or holding hands across the candle light?!?


We don't do; trendy frills or fancy gestures! 


We do; time spent with your loved one, in a peaceful, candle-lit environment, with delicious, hearty, home-cooked meals, with the option of splashing out on some delicious, extra bubbly if you're feeling naughty! 

For only £25 per person we offer a specially designed 3-course menu, including a glass of pink Prosecco, chocolates and a rose for that special someone.   Give us a call or pop in to book a table.
