Fabulous Food at Goodwin House - Sumptious Breakfasts, Packed Lunches & Evening Meals

Our homemade breakfasts are cooked fresh using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients wherever this is possible. Our Cumberland sausage, dry cured bacon and black pudding all come from Harrisons family butchers in Cockermouth (home of the Cumberland sausage) and our eggs come from Scales Farm, Embleton where the chickens roam free.

We also offer a good selection for guests preferring a meat free or vegan breakfast and can provide alternatives to our standard menu to support guests with special dietary requirements, food intolerances or allergies, but please do let us know in advance so we can deliver the best menu for your personal needs.
