The Yan at Broadrayne, built on the site of a 17th Century former farm, will comprise a rustic bistro, an open-plan lounge area and seven en-suite bedrooms.
Previously an independent hostel, The Yan is opening following an investment of over half a million pounds from owners from David and Sally Keighley, who bought Broadrayne Farm in 2012.
David and Sally’s daughter, Jess Manley, will run The Yan as operations director, with Jess’ husband Will, who previously worked at the Michelin-starred Forest Side restaurant in Grasmere, overseeing the kitchen as executive chef.
The bistro will be open to guests of The Yan and the public, serving seasonal dishes inspired by the farm’s history.
Described as ‘a casual yet classy eatery’, the menu will use locally sourced ingredients as the focal point. Dishes include black pudding scotch duck egg with mustard, chilli mayo, cured ham crisp and ratatouille chutney; and shepherd’s pie made with slowly braised lamb and cheesy mash potato.
Sharing dishes will also be available to diners, and will include a Cumberland sausage ring served with creamy potato and apple mash, topped with black pudding and bacon, braised red cabbage, crispy potato skins, green beans, mange tout and gravy.
