Country house hotel Lodore Falls is to launch a new Pan Asian restaurant as its £10m renovation project ramps up a gear.
The hotel, part of the Lake District Hotels group, is to open Mizu in mid May, which will serve a fusion of Asian cuisine including Malaysian, Japanese and Thai dishes under the direction of new head chef, Kasun Jayasooriya.
The eatery will join the hotel’s 2 AA Rosette dining experience, the Lake View restaurant, and will be an ‘exciting addition’ to Lodore Falls Hotel, taking its name from the Japanese word for ‘falling water’.
Chef Jayasooriya, originally from Sri Lanka, boasts a heap of London experience at the likes of Sake No Hana Japanese Restaurant on St James Street, Nizuni Japanese Restaurant on Charlotte Street as well as at Bincho Yakitori at Exmouth Market.
In addition to the launch of Mizu, four new bedroom suites with private riverside balconies have now gone live online, which will mark phase two of the development at Lodore Falls, following the refurbishment of the hotel’s ground floor.
A total of 18 new rooms at the hotel will be unveiled as the £10m continues, and will feature Scandi-inspired decor and designer furniture.
Marketing director of Lake District Hotels, Daniella Hope, said: “We are delighted to have made recent investment, such as refurbishing our public areas, developing new larger, luxurious bedroom suites and now with the creation and launch of Mizu restaurant. The stunning natural beauty of the Lake District makes it a competitive market place but we at Lodore Falls Hotel are confident that we offer something uniquely exciting.”
As well as a further 14 bedroom suites, The Falls Spa will launch during mid September 2018 to round of the complete renovation.
