Saturday the 9th August 2014 at the Cumbrian café, and I use the term loosely, one tea, one coffee and a pasty with watery gravy, £9.85, when I queried this, an obese, surly man said the prices were on the board, all I could see were pasty, chips and peas priced, how we stayed I still don't know, but what...

Shocking. Only wish i had read the other reviews before spending my money! Went early one sunday morning which is clearly not a good time to visit as unfortunately this was the only place open! Awful food and coffee one of the most awful coffees we have had. Tables needed a good clean and the staff needed to cheer up!... More

Called in here one lunch time. Should have been suspicious as everywhere else in the village was full and this place was almost empty. We each had a bowl of soup with a roll and a pot of tea. The soup was tasty but the portion was quite stingy. The accompanying bread was a piece of french stick from the... More

We popped in to the Cumbrian early one morning for breakfast (having driven into Grasmere the back way, not realising it had so much more to offer just a little further along the road). We stood in the empty seating area in front of the counter for five minutes before anyone came to serve us and what eventually did greet... More

Short of time, with only 40 minutes until our bus was due, we popped into The Cumbrian for a quick light lunch. "Homemade Vegetable Soup and Our Freshly Baked Bread" was undoubtedly commercially-produced soup accompanied by a small roll of the part-baked variety readily available in packets of six in any supermarket. Unfortunately, the roll had clearly spent not enough... More
