Hard to say what my favourite choice is for a snack- tuna mao baggette with salad or fruit or a bit more - Toad out of... More

Ate there recently after seeing their menu in a folder in out B&B. As a vegetarian, I was very pleased by the wide range of dishes on the menu that were either veggie or had a veggie option available. The outside terrace was great on a warm night and they had a nice selection of local bottled ales. Both of... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Greens whilst on a recent minibreak in Grasmere. We chose to go Greens because of the choice for vegetarians. I think my husband was slightly jealous of my main meal, vegetarian toad out of the hole, although he really enjoyed his boulangere. We had a scrumptious pear and ginger pudding each... More

We *loved* this place! We were doing the Coast to Coast walk and were getting a bit bored of the usual pub fare. Myself and my friend are both gluten-free and she's also dairy-free which can be a bit of a challenge. Not so with this menu! There is so much to choose from, perfect for vegetarians, vegans and carnivores.... More

We had lunch here as our normal stop while in Grasmere (Baldry's) was full. We were not disappointed. We both had the soup of the day, which was mushroom. The service was prompt and we soon both had a large bowl of hot soup with a large roll in front of us. Soup was excellent and good value for money.... More

To sit outside this place on a beautiful sunny day is just perfect. I've noticed recently that the best eating places in the Lake District always have someone who is attentive and manages the delivery of the menu and a nice friendly greeting. Green"s is well organised and has a great menu at mid range prices,but with great quality. Everything... More
