Food & Drink
Like most areas of the Lake District, Whitehaven is not short of quality food and drink. As a port town, seafood is a central part of the local cuisine. For those looking for a casual dining experience, Zest Harbourside offers a high quality menu that sources local produce. Similarly, Whitehaven mainstay, Arrighi’s, provide an incredible seafood dining experience by evening while also offering a more traditional fish and chip shop menu during the day. At our Whitehaven hotel, we also have our own Grove restaurant, and the Terrace Bar, which are perfect for guests that would like to eat quality food without having to go too far.
Having once been a port responsible for 80% of Ireland’s coal imports amongst other things, Whitehaven’s history is largely tied to trade. The Rum Story, in particular, provides a fascinating insight into the significant role of Whitehaven in the rum trade. For those interested in a broader history of the region, the Beacon Museum traces Whitehaven’s story all the way from Viking times to its recent role in the scientific community.
