The Conservatory Restaurant
Your Restaurant in Appleby & Cumbria for fine food & wine.
Built up over 25 years of service the Tufton Arms is justly proud of it's longstanding reputation for running a noted restaurant in Appleby as well as a hotel. Our style is to allow good food to do the talking, and when accompanied by our award winning wine list and combined with the elegance of the Conservatory Restaurant you can be assured that we are one of the restaurants in Cumbria worthy of your special occasion.
Our menus have always offered something for everyone, with fresh fish delivered daily from Neve's our fish suppliers in Fleetwood and meat from Dowdings next door. With the newly refurbished public areas there is a choice of both informal eating and the more formal restaurant surroundings. Sunday lunchtimes are still traditional and we have not abandoned our 25 year history of serving tender local beef, carved at the table from our Victorian carving trolley.
Long before food miles became fashionable we have always had a policy of buying locally, provided that the quality of the produce measured up to our high expectations. Fortunately it always has, from Low Howgill Cumberland sausages for breakfast and Stephensons greengrocers opposite to The Appleby Creamery producing a range of cheeses with milk from local farms. We are also source our own Grouse from Dufton Fell, pheasants and Venison from Dalemain.
No restaurant in Appleby, Cumbria or anywhere else would be complete with out a decent wine list and ours will not disappoint. Nigel Milsom has a lifelong passion for wine and our wine list continues to grow, especially with white wines to compliment the fish! We now import many wines ourselves directly from France, Italy and Spain and have our own wineshop ensuring that our list offers both diversity and value for money.
