Stopped here for a hot drink before going to Airaforce water fall tea and cappuicino both nice.Nice and homely inside.
Having just spent Christmas in Hospital and seeing the sun shining, a trip to The Lakes was on the cards. Lunchtime saw us at Ullswater so we decided to return to Granny Dowbekins. As usual staff were quick & courteous, the food was hot, well prepared and a good portion size. Tea and coffee plentiful with extra milk provided on... More
Thank you so much for visiting again, really pleased you enjoyed your visit and the new toilets. Best wishes Colin More
I have always been a big fan of granny dowbekiins and have enjoyed many meals and snacks there but today I was a little disssapointed. I always have a cappuccino when we go out so I know what it should taste like and look like. All I received was a milky coffee at best, it had a little froth on... More
Hi Steve, Thanks very much for your review and your continued custom. I appreciate your comments. Let me go through your 3 points. Cappucino: we use Tunki Peruvian Organic beans which are twice as costly as regular beans and give a lovely smooth finish. It is possible the machine was low, or we as a nation are getting used to...

The amazing thing about Granny D's is that it is open all year round and the recent changes have made it a great stop off whether you are walking cycling or just passing by. Good value food and cakes - especially good for cyclists and a very friendly atmosphere.
Many thanks for coming and for your review, yes we are open 363 days, just Christmas & Boxing day closed, so you can rely on us being there for you on your next ride. Best wishes Colin More
Good value for money for in a homely setting. Friendly service and tasty fare. The tables are placed quite close together so no chance for private conversation but for lunch with friends in an ideal location you can't beat it.
Many thanks for coming and for your review. Really pleased you enjoyed it. Best wishes Colin More

We popped in for food on a busy October half term day. The service was (understandably) a little slow but the place was packed and the freshly made food was delicious. We had an afternoon tea and bought some Gingerbridge for our neighbours. I have been here quite a few times over the years and would recommend it if you... More
Many thanks for visiting and posting your review. Really pleased the food was great, apologies about the tardiness. Best wishes Colin More
Made to feel very welcome, we sat outside which was very pleasant, clean and tidy. Scone was ok but would probably have been even nicer earlier in the day. Certainly somewhere I will call in on again due to the really friendly feel.
Many thanks for visiting and sharing your good time with us. Best wishes Colin More
Granny Dowbekins is a homely cafe offering warmth, cleanliness and excellent service. More importantly for my wife, who is a diabetic and lactose intolerant, it offers gluten and DAIRY-FREE cakes. Oh what unconfined joy as she consumed dairy-free carrot cake.What a difference it made for me for the remainder of the day-she was sweetness and light.
Really pleased we were able to make your wife so happy. Thanks for coming and sharing this. Best wishes Colin More
