Cannot visit Keswick without coming here to sample the biggest and best scones with jam and cream. Have to be seen and tasted to be believed.

Terrible weather meant we were on the hunt for a coffee stop to warm up and we were recommended this place by the tourist office in Keswick. For about £7.95 there was a meal deal, home-made soup, a drink and a scone with jam and cream. The mushroom soup was delicious, the drink piping hot and the scone was about... More

Tucked away on the North-West corner of Derwentwater, a leafy lane draws you down to the lakeside where the shore is devoted to... More

Called in mid january for a legendary scone and coffee. A Sad and dejected looking man eventually got up and served us. There where no fresh scones but he offered to microwave 2 cheese scones which we now regret agreeing to. Despite our drinks being complimentary (beverage vouchers courtesy of our guest house) I never the less expected my coffee... More
