Came down from hiking, cold and wet and needed something warm! This place was lovely- and just what we needed. The soup that they advertised had already run out (we were there after the lunch crowd had gone) but they had another equally appetizing one in its place. Hubby had rum and tea and I had coffee and we both... More

We had a very enjoyable coffee and cake. The baileys hot chocolate and scone with jam and clotted were excellent. Staff were very polite and friendly.

From stepping into the Potted Out Cafe to stepping out, wonderful. Seated within minutes, and nice young waitress came to take our order and was served within 10 minutes of ordering. The food for all four of us was hot and very nicely presented. I had the Leek & Potato Soup - which was very filling and good for a... More

Here you can sit in the window with a cup of something warm from tea, coffees or even mulled wine. Lots of lovely eats too. From English. Real fast to sandwiches, soups, finish with a cake or huge scone with cream and jam. Lush

Called in to get warm on a nasty wet day last week. They served a mulled wine which was just perfect.

We came to Grasmere to look at the Gingerbread House and thought we have late breakfast/lunch here. It was pissing down outside and we got a table by the window to admire the typical Lakes weather. We had sandwiches and to our surprise we thought they were rather pricey but the foodies were lush! Although it was a good service... More

Stopped here as Grassmere was very busy. Staff very quick to attend to us and food served very quickly. It's very nice, nothing amazing and quite expensive.

This is a lovely place to take a light lunch in Grasmere - the quality of the food was good, service great, well fitted out café and spotless (incl. the loo). Just one thing - slightly on the expensive side for what it is....in my humble opinion. But I suspect Grasmere isn't cheap for anything - car parking, food or... More

Went for breakfast after a dander round Grasmere. After looking at the menu I was a little alarmed at the prices but decided to give it a go. It was decent fayre but nothing special and certainly not value for money

We ventured out of The Daffodil Hotel where we were staying for a three night break with our children, aged 5 and 19 months on 2nd January 2014. This was the first restaurant we found. It was really good. The atmosphere was informal so we didn't feel too stressed about the children playing up past their bedtime. The young waitresses... More
