We had breakfast here this morning, arriving at 09.30 the place was already getting busy, which is always a good sign. Service was friendly and we didn't have to wait long for a delicious Full English Breakfast and a stack of pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. Both meals contained good quality ingredients, cooked well. So filling we didn't need... More

We have visited here quite a few times and always thoroughly enjoyed it. It was one of our favourite places to eat in Keswick, however yesterday we waited 1 hour 20 mins for our food. Nobody came over to explain what the hold up was and it wasn't until another couple got fed up of waiting and cancelled their order... More

This place is well worth a visit, just off the A66 in Keswick. The food is simply amazing and service is 2nd to none. This is a place you should arrange your trip around, I know I will be doing in future. Keep up the cracking work you lot and don't change :) happy days :) @glocky9 (Lake District Fells)

I always call here first when visiting the Lakes, whether on my bike or in the car, it's "everyone" friendly. The food is much better than the usual cafe fare, I always look forward to calling.

Was offered a table when they became free but daughter had become quite settled at the bar! Great menu choice for adults an children, the burger was one of the best... More

Was very pleased to find this place on a recent camping trip, on one of those mornings when we just needed to sit at a proper table and eat a proper hot breakfast... The full English and orange juice was great, the atmosphere was good, the staff were friendly and helpful and very happily catered for my gluten-free diet. Would... More

This place is a small business that is run exceptionally well and offers great food. There are a lot of bad reviews which have been written by the people who have objected to the cafe opening at night. Please take no notice of these and read the good reviews. The food is delicious and the staff are absolutely great, everything... More

I have been visiting The Filling Station cafe on a regular basis over the past couple of years, both on my motorbike, and in the car with family members. I am always welcomed by friendly staff and an easy going atmosphere. Whether having a cuppa or a meal I have always been very happy with what I have been served,... More
