Came here for breakfast one morning, all of the food was delightful! Pancakes were fluffy and light, sausages were tasty and full English breakfast huge! Only thing that wasn't good as the milkshake. It tasted too fake in both taste and texture, I didn't drink it. And no one asked if our food was ok for me to say otherwise.... More

Visited whilst on holiday attending the Keswick Convention. Birthday / anniversary treat for my inlaws. Great place - cool nostalgic theme and massive mugs of tea. Pancakes were very tasty also. Will definitely look to return in the future.

Visited this cafe on the recommendation of a friend and wasn't disappointed. Ordered the BBQ burger with sweet potato fries .... WOW!!!! The burger was massive (i was a fatty and went for the extra stack of an additional 6oz burger) The sweet potato fries were delicious and it was all served with a smile. The staff were great and...

From huge full English breakfasts to great burgers and the best raspberry milkshakes ever, we love the Filling Station. I have a weak spot for their steak eggs Benedict but would happily work my way through the menu, while the missus - a coffee fan - loves their lattes. "Any chance of just a plate of bacon and sausages for... More

I love coming to the Filling Station. I'm not vegetarian but I don't like eating too much meat. There is a good choice of meat free options. I usually go for the Veggie A66 burger. It's so tasty,nice big portions and great chips. Depending on who's serving, the service isn't always as good as the food...

Had a trip out from York on the Goldwing especially to visit the cafe as we had heard so much about it. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Plenty of seating inside and out and not cramped. A good variety of food available, something for everyone even if your a vegetarian. We had a A66 burger and a Stilton... More

Wanted to visit for ages. Finally did on Saturday after a swim at Keswick Spa. My son & I had Route 66 burgers. They were the best burgers we've had in a long time. Cooked to perfection, well done chef. Service was excellent & had lovely chat with the lady that served us. This place is a little gem &... More

I was in Canada a year ago, and the visit here today was better than anything last year. A fabulous brunch; eggs benedict and even pinched some of my kids pancakes. Superb coffee too. A wonderful atmosphere and biking memorabilia is fab. Loved it - we'll be back !!

We called in for cold drinks and coffee on Sunday afternoon - ended up ordering cold drinks, coffee, burgers, 5-stack pancakes with sausage and maple syrup, and plain pancakes..... All very well cooked and presented, incredibly pleasant and accommodating staff even though it was very busy.
