Very nice!

Ate lunch here. Service was excellent - staff were very quick to take our order and to serve up - and our food was very nice, with the chips some of the nicest I've ever had! Next time I'm in Grasmere I'd definitely come back.

The food was very nice and at a good price, especially compared to most restaurants in Grasmere which were quite pricey for the quality of food and service you received. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. We managed to get a table without booking as there were only two of us but would advise you to book in advance, especially as... More

A bit crowded and crushed with tables in a sort of makeshift arrangement. Gave impression of being right on the street. Felt it was pricey for what the atmosphere provided. We prefer the Potting Shed cafe across the road. Don't plan to return as it was just OK, and there's plenty choice in the village.

Lovely, small restaurant in the centre of Grasmere. Offers a wide range of food and drinks. Great quality and good service. Dogs are welcome on the terrace. Book early if you want to eat inside!

We continue to come back to this restaurant as it provides good service and food. We had a three night stay in Grasmere and dined here every evening. The chips are very tasty! Keep up the good work!

We ate here on our last night in The Lake District. We hadn't booked but were seated immediately and served soon after. Food was delicious and atmosphere was relaxed. Staff very friendly.

After a day of hiking we ended up in this cosy little cafe in Grasmere village. The service was friendly and prompt. I had "tiger prawn" risotto which was very delicious. My daughter's linguine was also very good. All in all it's a satisfying dining experience and I would definitely return if I visit Grasmere again.

I visited here on my recent holiday in grasmere and was very pleased, good food and reasonable prices - we enjoyed it enough to go back the following evening. Limited beer selection, ales were bottle not draught but that didn't take away from the nice dinner and lovely setting.
