This was our first visit to the lakes and we arrived very wet and hungry. I thought I'd try the Cumbrian Tatty Hash. I was unprepared for just how warming and delicious it was. Many thanks to the chef! My wife equally enjoyed hers, and on a repeat visit a few days later it was equally delicious, and my wife... More

What is it about English service and hospitality that so often is lacking in the basics? Visited this twice; the first time they had no cream for coffee and the second time it was coming up to closing time and we felt distinctly ad if we were in the way. You have to improve!

This isn't our policy and is not a comment we've ever had before. We do act upon every comment we receive, both positive and negative, but as you can see from earlier reviews we... More

Friendly staff, very efficient service, generous and tasty full english breakfast, obvious that they use good quality ingredients. Hot chocolate to die for! Had to stop at the bakery on the way out, the cakes were too tempting! :)

Brysons is found at the bottom of the Market Place in Keswick and cleverly you have to walk past all the sights and smells of the bakery offerings to climb the stairs to the tea room - unless you sit downstairs or outside under the canopy. Enjoy your cuppa, have a cake or a sandwich, have a breakfast or a... More

This is an obviously very popular establishment but we had no problem being seated in the large upstairs area. We ordered the 'Afternoon tea for two' - check their website for details- and when it arrived we were not disappointed ! From the speciality sandwiches to the dainty lemon mousse it was perfect and delicious. Admittedly rather steep at £22.50... More

Brysons plum bread is amazing . Just like old fashioned home made fruit read with a taste of yesteryear. Staff very helpful and polite, lots of seating upstairs, coffee divine. The craft bakery has an incredible range and display of cakes , biscuits and hand crafted breads . Don't leave Keswick without a visit .

We have enjoyed this shelter from the rain on two occasions this week. The service was friendly, the menus were extensive and the value was very good. Both occasions we went in for tea. Big selection of teas and cakes, scones, sandwiches. We were allowed to mix and match on the scone menu. Scones were freshly made, soft on the... More

We visted Brysons again this afternoon. We have been regular visitors over the years. We last came in July and were disappointed with the slow service and uninterested staff. We hoped as it is now a quieter time of the year things would have improved. Alas similar slow service albeit staff were polite this time. Just not enough of them.... More
