Great Lunch, Reasonably Priced

My wife and I stopped here for lunch with our Lab. (Dogs are welcome inside and outside). We both had one of the specials, Pea and Ham Soup with a fresh oven bake roll, it was really good! The service was fast and friendly and you were not made to feel as though you were being rushed to finish... read more

Had breakfast and coffee here. The full English was good. But missing the black pudding which you kind of expect in the lakes. It wasn't cheap. But the food and coffee are quality products. The gentleman serving was very polite.I would recommend here to friends if staying in the lakes.

Just visited Greens for the second time during our weeks stay in Grasmere. On both visits the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Other reviews have commented on the price but it's a real example of you get what you pay for. When we return to Grasmere Greens will be on our list again.

Had lunch in Greens Cafe in the lovely village of Grasmere today. Very busy little place. It was very pleasant sitting outside in the sun. The food was of a high standard and the staff were very nice. Cost were a little on the high side but overall it was worth it for where it was. Try the pork pie... More

We visited here in September last year and it was one of the best breakfasts we have had whilst staying in the Lake District. We returned again in August 2015 and glad to say the standards have remained high. My last review is detailed below and am happy to say I will repeat the review. Definitely worth a visit. "I...

Stopped here for lunch on a busy August day. Fair choice of food with bias on veggie. Cumberland sausage (not veggie) very good and rarebits excellent. Very pleasant staff and average price. Evening menu seems a bit more veggie biased. We were pleased we had stopped.

I absolutely loved this place for the vegan ice cream sundae and the veggie toad out of the hole the ultimate comfort food. Really wonderful staff and service. If you are in Grasmere go there.

Went here for lunch with my 2 children. Saw it was pricey but we were hungry. 3 sausage baguettes with crisps an 2 reg an a small hot chocolate £36. Locally sourced or not that's some margin.

The food we had was nice- the drinks were lovely ( especially the hot chocolate ☕️) and the food was nice and fresh. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were helpful. Altogether a great place to go for a meal or for just a snack.
