Stumbled into this great place on a typically wet grasmere day ....met by an incredibly warm welcome. Service great. Menu excellent. Sadly we weren't very hungry but my husband couldn't resist the blackberry crumble ...He was not disappointed...huge portion ....piping hot ....just what the doctor ordered. You can't go wrong here...simply great! We visit the Lake District regularly and will... More

Had lunch at Baldry's recently and the food was fabulous, coffee great and their famous lemon meringue pie was incredibly tasty. Free wifi, lovely little cafe, definitely put it on your list for coffee and cake, if not lunch when visiting Grasmere.

My jaw nearly hit the floor when I looked at the prices here - £9.50 for a smoked salmon and cream cheese bap! It was delicious but I thought this was very steep. We live in London and that would have been dear even for central London prices. Despite the prices, we decided to get lunch here. Tastefully done with... More

We ordered rarebit with a poached egg and bacon. It was gorgeous and more than enough for lunch-time. Tea, (in bone china cups and saucers) came loose leaf with strainer, a tradition... More

No contest when I'm in Grasmere. No seats when I arrived but the busy boss soon found one for me n' dog. No need to look at the menu - the tea is expertly served - the strainer will confuse some younger folk. The Tiffin is fantastic - I didn't even look for the prices. It's not the cost, it's... More
