We were drawn into having our lunch here for the setting, which was overlooking the stream. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. For what we had (2 fairly bland turkey & cranberry paninis with lettuce that was brown round the edges& scones) with tea & coffee it came to the pricey sum of £20. It really was not worth... More

Perfect setting with its riverside terrace overlooking St. Oswald's Church and Wordsworth's Daffodil Garden. Considering its location the prices here are very reasonable. There are plenty of tables inside and out and the service was very quick. We went for the Cumberland Sausage Sandwich and a TIP: The sausage sandwich is gi - normous so order one to share and...

From a seat located by the window, one could imagine why Beatrix Potter loved it here. Ducks floated by on the little river, everything so green and beautiful. Order your food at the counter (try to pick one thing from the display case) and enjoy tea or a glass of wine either inside or on the deck overlooking the water... More

Visited this café as it looked lovely from the outside. Ordered food which was expensive. ... paninis and jacket potato arrived which were 'ok'.... I went to the counter to remind them they hadn't brought my children's desserts.... They brought them to he table and very rudely asked if I had paid!!!!! It was very embarrassing! I said I had......

Stopped by for a quick tea break. Service was friendly and efficient. Sat outside beside the lovely steam with a nice view of the arch bridge and nearby church. The apple pie was great but not used to the turkey ham panini in cranberry sauce. Latte was good. All told a wonderful place for a quick tea break.

Grasmere is a small, picturesque village in the lake district. Most people come here to visit Wordsworth's grave. There is a small garden where if you are there in April is full of daffodils. The Tea Gardens in on the one and only street, near the church. There is an outside seating area that overlooks the stream and church. Sandwichs,... More

Nicely decorated place. Seating by the river. Service good I had the sticky gingerbread - lovely. I requested hot water and a slice of lemon, which was happily accommodated. Pleasant experience, nothing extra special though.

Was visiting Grasmere and as such a nice day dropped into the tea gardens so could sit by the river for morning coffee. Had coffee and cake with a wonderful view of the river and the church on the other bank. Reasonably priced.
