I only went in for a coffee and ordered a black Americano as listed on the menu. I was given a black filter coffee. Would the management please note that an Americano is an expresso topped up with hot water. You need to have a proper coffee machine to make this and I couldn't see one behind the counter.

Stopped off for lunch with the family, again pricey but not extortion. Food was all pretty good, the chilli was lovely. Panini was a big dry but ok. Lovely location next to the river, and although busy there was plenty of room around you. Would go again.

We dropped in for elevenses on our way through Grasmere. A decent size with plenty of space for children and pushchairs, and a standard range of fare at the usual tourist prices. There wasn't anything wrong with the place - it was clean, decent choice of food, it wasn't cramped, but it wasn't that exciting either - it was like... More

While on our Globus Celtic Highlights tour, we stopped at the Grasmere Tea Gardens. We shared a scone (my first experience with a scone). It was a sweet biscuit with dried fruit inside. When you add jam and whipped topping, you have a rich, wonderful pastry. Really good.

This place has such a great location yet they aren't open until late morning, so no breakfast, and close at 4.30pm, so early! In one week in Grasmere we managed to find it open once! On such a hot I was so surprised to find that they don't do ice coffee or tea! They have coffee/tea and ice, how hard... More

In central Grasmere we found this delightfully situated restaurant for lunch. We had to wait for an outside table as it was a beautiful hot day and the place was very popular, but it was worth waiting for. The food was good, but the main attraction was the situation, overlooking the river and the Church on the other side of... More

We ended up either getting afternoon tea or a light linch here three days in a row! Everything is well-prepared and tasty. Excellent prices too! Great, friendly staff.

An old family favourite, I was hopeful that the restaurant would still be a lovely place for lunch years after our last visit. If anything it's improved. Our baked potatoes were lovely with the chilli being the best I've tasted in a long time and the cakes tempting and large. Sit outside if you possibly can as the views of... More

We were at this restaurant for lunch and I am so happy we stumbled upon this lovely place. The food is very good and fresh. The staff is extremely warm and attentive. As well as very helpful. The seating outside, by the river, is awesome. Of course, the fearless crows are a pain but manageable. The restaurant goes back over... More
