Yummy

Had tea and cake here. Delish! The vic sponge and lemon curd cake were amazing.....and fanatic portions! My only criticism was the lack of alternative milk options......no soya milk.

Plenty of cakes to chose from and refreshments varied. Eclectic mix of seating, crockery etc to give that old tea room feel. Cappuccino hot which was nice. However no warm welcome or any engagement from the hosts/staff so wouldn't return . Shame

We've been there for afternoon tea. The scones are really good and the sandwiches also. We can recommend both.

The main followed and was very nice,a selection of three cheeses, with bread,apple and salad with a balsamic dressing. Very filling and after eating time to walk it off and explore the village. We returned later for... More

Small cafe and gift shop in the centre of Hawkshead. Nice outside seating area and a good big pot of tea. Lunch options were really just various type of sandwiches/rolls and paninis. Ok place to stop but really but nothing special. Didn't try any of the cakes.

We stopped here half way through our 18 mile bike ride. Its very cute and a great little pit stop. Would be even lovelier if the sun was shining but the blankets definitely helped! Yummy cakes and sandwiches, definitely worth a stop!
