Si King, best known for being one half of the Hairy Bikers, visited a country inn near Windermere on Monday.

The chef and TV personality popped in for an evening meal at the Wild Boar Inn, found on Crook Road.

King took the time afterwards to take a photo with members of staff and left a lasting impression on those he spent time with.

Luke, one of the chefs on shift at the time, said: "It's always a privilege to cook for all the guests at the Wild Boar Inn - their feedback is invaluable.

"But hearing it from someone who has inspired you through your culinary life makes for a pretty cool way to kick off the year."
