Lovely lunch

Visited Greens whilst in Grasmere and had a great lunch - food was tasty, well prepared and for a reasonable price. Staff were friendly and service good. Would recommend and visit again.

Great location, great service, good cakes (I would have tried more but for the calories!). Good pot of tea. Can't ask for more of a tea shop really! Mark

Popped in for cake and a couple of drinks. The staff were very friendly and welcoming even although they were in the process of getting ready for their evening meal service. We had the pineapple cake and I can honestly it is one of the best cakes I have ever had. Will definitely return!!!!😃

Was lucky enough to get the last free table on a busy Monday evening. Reassuringly short but appealing menu with a good range of inventive sounding dishes. I went for the grilled halloumi with potato rosti which was delicious and a very generous serving. Attentive, polite and warm service throughout. A treat, and I won't hesitate to return.

I had heard that Greens had a good gluten free menu so really wanted to try it out. It is definitely the best place I have been to in terms of gluten free options. The soup was beautiful and to be able to have gluten free bread with it was a welcome change from most other cafes! I couldn't fault... More

After a hard hike up Cat Bells, Greens was the perfect place to refuel. Food is wholesome and satisfying. Sausages come in meat, veggie and vegan versions. The vegan ones were delicious, served with mash, carrots, peas, red cabbage and onion gravy. I'm glad I just managed to find room for the chocolate and damson cake with soya ice cream... More

We visited Greens cafe after noticing it had gluten free options earlier in the day. So after our walk on a nearby fell we called in for lunch. The waitress was very attentive and our drinks and food arrived extremely quickly. Both meals were hot and very nice, I went for the shepherds pie (gf) and my fiancée went for... More
