Gilpin Spice

Many are unaware that Cumbria hides an enchanting, quite surprising connection when it comes to the spice trade. The port town of Whitehaven has a deep rooted history of involvement in the trading of spice, which followed the famous Silk Route all the way over to Japan. Gilpin Spice makes great use of this connection; celebrating the rich heritage of Cumbrian cuisine and its use of spice, from the humble cumberland sausage to the lively Grasmere gingerbread.

Gilpin Spice use only quality farms who believe in nature, to source their spices. These spices are then used to create the tastiest dishes originating from each nation, with a slight twist on the classic. Sit at the Chef’s Table as your meal is prepared before your eyes; beautiful decor will transport you to the glitz and glamour of a curry house deep in Mumbia or to a classic restaurant, bursting with serenity and elegance – deep in the heart of Beijing.
