If you enjoy eating out in the Lake District but long for a fresh take on restaurant dining, you’ll love Mizu! A pan-Asian restaurant in the heart of the Lake District. Mizu’s menu is a treat for the senses: a selection of tempting Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai specialities, expertly prepared by our highly skilled team of chefs from the freshest ingredients.
Expect sensational sushi and sashimi, crisp tempura, fragrant curries and delicately spiced bowls of ramen, as well as tender meat, chicken and fish dishes from the grill, Mizu-style.
We’ve taken the Japanese expression for water – Mizu – as inspiration for our exciting new Pan-Asian restaurant on the shores of Derwentwater. With the lake on one side and the Lodore Falls on the other (plus our famous Cumbrian climate!), Mizu certainly lives up to its name, offering guests a unique opportunity to taste fresh, Asian-inspired dishes in the heart of the Lake District.
We’ve stuck to our Zen theme inside, too, where you’ll discover décor that’s designed to create a relaxed ambience, with cool, elemental colours, floor-to-ceiling windows and lots of natural textures and materials.
We’ll invite you to begin your Mizu experience with drinks at the stylish cocktail bar before taking your seat in the restaurant. If you prefer to dine alfresco, you can always decamp to the riverside terrace, where patio heaters and cosy blankets will help to keep the chill off on cooler days. The open-plan kitchen offers a fascinating snapshot of a busy restaurant in action – see for yourself how great food gets from oven to plate.
What a fabulous location for a laid-back lunch with friends. We recommend the relaxed vibe of the riverside terrace, where you can share our popular platters, mix and match a selection of sticks, salads, sushi and sides or even tuck into your very own bento box for an authentic Asian experience – all accompanied by the soothing sounds of the Watendlath Beck as it flows to the lake. Bliss!
Whether you’re planning a romantic evening for two or a family outing that’s a break from the norm, Mizu is the perfect destination. There’s something for everyone on our eclectic menu from classic Japanese nori-wrapped maki sushi to fragrant Thai-style curries. Dishes also include tender cuts of beef, lamb or chicken, prepared by our chefs and served straight from the grill. Simply delicious food, beautifully cooked.
