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.

The food was unadventurous but substantial and decent quality. It took a while to get the food but there were no complaints when it did arrive. I had a chilli burger but the deep-fried jalapenos were a bit oily but the burger was fine with a decent salad included. My wife and daughter had the eggs benedict and were fully... More

I arrived at the cfe early on Saturday morning, I was about 10 minutes early but the staff made me feel very welcome and even gave me a coffee and let me sit and wait till it officially opened. Within 5 minutes of opening the cafe was buzzing with customers of all ages. A few walkers, cyclists, motorcyclists and car... More

I've been to the Filling Station Cafe a few times over the past 2 years as well as a few other places to eat and by far I find the Filling Station has the best food with Happy, Friendly Staff. I now make it a point when I'm over Keswick way to have at least 1 meal there during my... More

This is an excellent place to eat, drink and stop for a while. The food is truly excellent and the attention to detail by the guys who work there is fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble & everyone is lovely. I have been a few times now but I have to say it's my favorite place to eat in the... More

I've visited twice recently and on both occasions have found the staff to be courteous and friendly. The" A66" burger was delicious. Looking forward to trying a breakfast in the near future ☺

Visited today for an early lunch with my family and dog. The staff could not have been more welcoming providing a huge bowl of water for him as soon as we got there. Food was gorgeous, we had a selection of pancakes and sausage sandwiches. All well cooked and very tasty. Hope to be back again soon. Thank you.

Great food, love the burgers, eggs Benedict and it's great for my wife who is vegetarian. Always has some great stuff on the blue plate special board too. The burgers are so filling, chances are you'll never sample the cake. Ample parking in their own car park too. Most of all though, it's nice to see somebody attempt something different... More

Stopped off here, well actually took a detour to come here and was well worth the extra few miles. Great service and food. Had a pancake stack with blueberries and the coffee was excellent.

Dropped in here in a group of 9 riders, very disappointed with the quality of coffee and more disappointed with the miserable staff whom everything appeared a chore. Did however appreciate the "suspended coffees" and general appearance inside.
