Craig and Louise Sherrington are redefining fine dining at their new restaurant in Ulverston. Virginia House aspires towards seamless service with none of the traditional formality -- expect relaxed fine dining, great food and equally good wine. Choose from modern British classics from the kitchen and contemporary, edgy dishes prepared using only the finest quality ingredients, sourced from local suppliers wherever possible. Chef patron Craiq is classically trained with a wealth of experience in Michelin-starred kitchens under the mentorship of highly respected chefs like David Everitt-Matthias of Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham and Eric Chavot of Brasserie Chavot in Mayfair. Previous owners of the General Burgoyne, a little country pub a few miles down the road in the village of Great Urswick. the Sherringtons transformed it from an ailing hostelry into the 'go to' dining establishment for the area. And they're doing the same here at Virginia House with their first AA rosette in September 2016 quickly followed by a second in May 2017 and in 2018 Craig was a finalist in BBC2's Great British Menu.
FRIDAY 25TH JANUARY 2019 7PM - £40pp.
We welcome all you Scots living South of the border who'd love to celebrate their heritage and homeland, whilst honouring the life and works of Robert Burns
(25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), Bard of Ayshire, poet & lyricist.
Or it may just be that you quite like all things Scottish and love good food, really good food!! And as you'll have come to know, Craig's food, whilst sounding quite traditional is more 'traditional with a twist' - Expect the Unexpected!!
There'll be a 5 Course meal, inclusive of a wee dram of course, cooked for you by Craig Sherrington who recently appeared on BBC2 Great British Menu, winning the North West heat, making it all the way to the national finals and narrowly missing out on the honour of cooking his main course 'A Sense of Occasion' at a banquet to say thank you to our NHS Heroes.
