Built by the lakes' owner, Sue and Mark Anderson, two years ago, the Bulrush and its waterside setting was launched to give diners a peaceful place to enjoy a bite to eat while enjoying the wonderful views.
Located in the rural, historic village of Barnburgh, the Bulrush brings the warmth and texture of its natural surroundings inside with stone floors, log burner and mix of chunky wooden furniture.
The food is what its mainly about here and so has its own page. Please click here to view.
