About Virginia House
RESTAURANT | GIN PARLOUR | ROOMS
A time and a place for joy.
There’s a time for eating. There’s a time for drinking. There’s a time for resting. At Virginia House there’s plenty of time for all three. And the perfect place, too. Craig and Louise Sherrington welcome you to their beautifully crafted world. They welcome you to a Restaurant where you’re as likely to find key ingredients foraged fresh that day from the nearby woods as you are quality local produce from the market. They welcome you to an atmospheric Gin Parlour where craft botanicals, artisan mixology, fine wines and friends all gorgeously mingle. And they welcome you to bright, fresh boudoirs for a peaceful end to a perfect day. In other words, they welcome you to joy.
Fantastic food cooked to a very high standard. Great choice on menu, thank you for a delicious meal!
Lovely place, fantastic food, great cocktails in the Gin Parlour. Our room was basic but very clean. There were renovation works going on whilst we were there, if everywhere else is anything to go by, I'm sure the dated decor of the room will soon be a thing of the past. I wouldn't hesitate to go again.
Very enjoyable lunchtime. Def on the to do again list
You provide a high end eating experience which was very good, but a slight error in desserts lost you a point in service... However, this was immediately compensated for without request from the diners... So really it was only 1/2 a point. Food at this price point becomes debatable as value for money, but the quality of the ingredients and the skill of the chef goes a very long way to justifying the outlay... We will be back to pamper our tastebuds!
Absolutely beautiful meal at Virginia House. The service was exceptional, the dining room is beautiful and the food was amazing. We had a fabulous dining expeeience.:)
(1) Booking a dinner table for four was efficient and courteous, the confirmation of my booking was confirmed within minutes, excellent. (2) Upon arrival we were greeted and our wet coats taken from us, excellent (3) We were shown the bar, and the two ladies were very helpful in giving us information on the various gins available, we really enjoyed our pre-dinner drinks, excellent. (4) We were taken through to the dining room and offered the menu and wine list. The food on the menu was well described, nobody had a problem in deciding what to eat. Likewise the Wine list was also well described permitting a nice wine at a reasonable price to be ordered (2 bottles). (5) The food arrived and was served with professionalism, we all loved every mouthful. Every course was a delight. (6) When we were due to leave the Chef appeared at the entrance, we thanked him for an excellent meal. (7) WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE FRIENDS. (6)
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will be returning soon...the food was interesting and delicious...love the gin parlour and the ambience. The only thing we would change is the Viognier...other than that the whole experience was excellent. XxxxX
We all loved our meal and cocktails yesterday . We will be back soon . Thank you Jane
We both had the Taster Menu. Was very nice. Had a few of the courses before from the gourmet nights when you were at the general Burgoyne. All presented well. Would be good if the taster menu could change every 2 months or something! Would definitely recommend people to go.
Superb food 'on the plate' and good wine and drinks list. Service also good but could be more polished. Stars ahead for Ulverston.
The quality of the food was excellent. We all enjoyed our starters and mains but did feel that the duck required a little more, maybe a parsnip or sweet potato mash. The Indian flavours with the monkfish were perfect, a well balanced dish. We enjoyed our evening and were grateful to have a discount voucher. The restaurant is an asset to Ulverston but there is a danger that it may be overpriced.
A lovely restaurant with tasty food and excellent service. I was there on a quiet night hence my score for atmosphere.
Thoroughly enjoyable evening, with very good food and wine. We went on a quiet night so had very personal service. Perhaps a little too much ice in my gin, which detracted from the taste and experience. Thank you Craig keep up the creativity.
A friend and I dined here on a whim as an indulgent treat having read good reviews on tripadvisor. I was pleasantly surprised to be able to book online, and there was a lot of fre space for the night. The food was very well presented and the selection of cocktails is varied enough for anyone to find seeming to try. Most of the courses were explained to us, and my only criticism (if you can call it that,) is that this really is "Ulverston's best kept secret" and there wasn't much ambience in the restaurant compared to the lively buzz in the gin bar. Highly recccomended, and will return.
Lovely evening, the Gin Room bar staff were excellent, very friendly and knowledgable. The food was fantastic and the surroundings lovely, the restaurant staff were very polite and friendly, but what they were saying felt automated and rehearsed rather than natural. Definately will return.
Lovely place. Food very good and although not a gin drinker myself my companions really enjoyed the gin parlour
Excellent food. Great gin bar. Very attentive & kind but the young waiter was too too nervous , clumsy & inexperienced. We were nervous watching him, sorry. Didn't like table position, to the right of the door. Felt excluded from other diners & too close to kitchen entrance, plus thought kitchen door (or something by the door) makes a noise ?! A bit distracting
First visit to Virginia House. We all had a lovely evening thankyou. The service was great, attentive but not over fussy and the food.....well....out of this world, first class, delicious. Virginia House will be our new first stop for a treaty evening.
An excellent meal with great presentation and attention to detail, All the dishes we ate had that immediate eat me appeal. Probably the best dining experience in Ulvertson and its locality . Service was good and not pushy or rushed. Planning return visit when next in town. We wish you well with the whole enterprise.
Excellent Meal in a friendly atmosphere.
Had a great evening with friends Would definitely return
Service is excellent and some of the food is lovely, the starters were amazing but the main courses were a little under seasoned, and as a vegetarian I found the choices available not as stand out special as those available for meat eaters. We had the cheese board as pudding which was a lovely end to the meal, fresh bread and crackers were yummy.
Really pleased to have a first class restaurant locally as we had taken to going away for special occasion meals. We had the tasting menu which was delicious. Different tastes witout being theatrical. Service was just right. We will definitely be back.
A wonderful evening with amazing food and impeccable service.
Excellent service and unbelievably tasty food!
