Stopped on the way home from swimming. Staff were friendly and accommodating, as we were able to order the kids meals off the menu. Sausages and chips. The food was good and well portioned. The place also has a good 'free' jukebox which is always a bonus.

The tall pancake stack with crispy bacon and maple syrup was very very tasty. The Filling Station was clean and bright and friendly. It made a great change from other eateries in the area, and I'd definitely go again!

We called at the Filling Station for a quick lunch yesterday, but the service was anything but quick! The place wasn't at all busy, and, whilst I appreciate fresh food takes time to prepare, the time it took to produce 2 burgers was excessive! Added to this, the burgers were undercooked in the middle and so had to be returned... More

My family and I (four of us on the first visit and 7 of us plus a 2 year old on the second visit) had fantastic breakfasts at The Filling Station during our week's stay in the Lakes.

We called at the Filling Station on Saturday morning when we visited Keswick, it's easy to find easy to park and the place is on fire with atmosphere, treating ourselves to Salmon and Steak Benedick was a winner and I can highly recomend it, I am sure we will be back again very very soon Thank you

I've been to this cafe about six times now, it's a firm favourite when I'm near Keswick. The food is excellent, especially the pancakes with bacon. Even just popping in on a rainy day for a hot chocolate or a coffee is very pleasurable. My one gripe would be that on a recent visit the great selection if homemade cakes... More
