Ate there today, after a long hike, and the food was delicious and the service fast. The staff are friendly and knowledgable, and it is a great part of beautiful Grasmere.

This delightful cafe/bistro was a great find. We became aware of it when my wife (who is celiac) was directed there by another restaurant , when they could not do a gluten-free option. We were so glad we found it: my wife was served a Rarebit (with attitude). This description referred to the rarebit being served on a chilli-lime-ginger jam... More

My family and I come back to Grasmere every year at Easter and Greens is alwas a number one priority. The food is amazing and they never leave you hungry! The range they have for celiacs, veggies etc is great and being gluten-free myself, I love all the options. The staff are so friendly and make us feel welcome the... More

If veggie vegan gluten free etc don't even waste time looking ------ go straight to Greens. Everything about it is great. The men who serve and attend to you are so courteous, pleasant and helpful, the waitress was polite, very helpful and pleasant. The lady who cooks obviously cares about the food she prepares and this comes through in the... More

Greens Bistro in lovely Grasmere is a busy eatery in the heart of this gorgeous Lakes village. We headed there for lunch during a recent short break in Cumbria. Greens has indoor and outdoor seating - we opted for an indoor table and were soon served by a helpful waitress. I ordered a superfood salad (along with a cheeky serving... More

So happy to have found this restaurant. Gluten free cakes, packed lunches and meals all available. Can definitely recommend the GF chocolate and the lemon drizzle cake.

Travelling with a vegan teenager who doesn't much like fruit and veg is a challenge to say the least. Greens managed to satisfy both her and us - which is quit an achievement.

Get a bit sick of having same old choice when eating out (vegetarian with vegetarian kids) but here there is a huge choice of lovely different meals. Really appreciated the amount of choice on menu. Food was lovely and service great too. :-)

After an early morning mountain bike excursion my husband was starving, so we had a stroll into Grasmere in search of something to eat. We decided on the sausage and caramelised onion baguette. Absolutely enormous and out of this world - my daughter and I wished we'd got one to share. Also saw people having the soup, which looked generous... More
