We loved eating in this tea room, the atmosphere was relaxing and it was very warm and cosy! I liked the old fashioned touch to the place. I had a tuna sandwich, the bread being lovely and fresh from the bakery downstairs. The luxury hot chocolate was the best one I have had in a long time! I was sad... More

This is a great place for a mid morning coffee and scone, or a mid afternoon pot of tea and a cake, but it does fab meals too. With the baked goods coming from the bakery downstairs everything is wonderfully fresh. V attentive and polite staff and plenty of space too. A nice place to take my elderly Mum and... More

The bakery shop downstairs looks inviting with produce that looks way above the standard that Greggs sets for itself. So I went upstairs and ordered a full English. The service was attentive and the food was served quite quickly. However for what was on the plate I could only say that I have had better stuff from burger vans in... More

Dear Mr Jordan Thank you for your review - though we are surprised you didn't enjoy your full English breakfast. All the produce on the plate is fresh from the local farm and is of the highest quality. The only complaint we have had before regarding our breakfast is that the sausage was rather large.....however, we do appreciate that everyone... More

Back again today. Keswick was quiet but the warm welcome made up for it at brysons. Staff were friendly and efficient (though there didn't seem to be many staff) and the products were lovely. Even got persuaded to get some biscuits which I am looking forward to with my tea in the morning!

To be honest not the best place for a cup of tea and slice of cake, but did the job. Cakes can be a little dry

A good manager could really make this work. The produce in the shop is so good but it is lost in the cafe. They could do so much more.

Not often that I would bother to review a little tea room, but this one is great. Good service, great food - and the smell from the bakery makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

Temporarily unable to negotiate stairs we took a table near the counter downstairs. We had to ask for it to be wiped clean! The table was in a windy and cold spot. The coffee was poor, very weak. The bacon sandwich was made from a crispy air filled muffin and was very dry to eat. What really lowered the tone... More

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. As you point out the coffee bar is downstairs, and as we are in the depths of winter there will always be a change in the air temperature when the door is opened. Not much we can do about that I am afraid. As for the staff talking, I will ensure that... More
