Having visited this establishment many times we were both surprised and disappointed at the change of ownership and focus of menu. Gone are the many vegetarian/vegan friendly choices with just a sop to vegetarians on the menu, even the soup was not suitable. It once stood out as a niche venue for vegetarians and vegans but is now just another... More

Having lived many many miles away from the north of England for the last few years we arrived at the Pedlar on Saturday full of anticipation only to find it no longer existed :( . This once fabulous veggie eatery has been replaced with an indifferent looking place with very little of interest to the non-meat eater on it's menu... More

We have in the past driven miles to eat at the a peddlar in Keswick, due to family stuff we have not been for a few months, until today. What a shock, Pedlar has gone, replaced with just another meat focused cafe, staff just don't understand what's changed. Came off the fells to silly little tapas dishes, even put the... More

The lakeland pedlar has been taken over now for the past 16 months and is not purley veggie anymore which might explane the disappointment from the veggie side of things. What we now provide are tapas dishes, meat & also seafood which have been extremely popular. These new additions also appeal to the locals who use us especially during the... More

Didn't know it had changed hands, oh dear! We arrived at a minute before 10am for a breakfast, told they were closed till 10am, but graciously allowed entry. Should have taken the hint and gone to either of the two adjacent cafes serving with a smile. We ordered, veggie sausage muffins and muesli with yogurt and banana. Never had a... More

We stumbled across this gem of a place by chance but it very quickly became a regular haunt for us. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food delicious. I was so disappointed that there wasn't time to call in for a last piece of grandma's fantastic fruit cake on our morning of departure. This cafe has a... More

I loved the veggie food served there, I hope the meaty food will be just as tasty!! Can't wait for the new menu.

I had not been here for several years but was happy to go back again for a birthday lunch. The first thing I noticed is it's not called Lakeland Pedlar any more - just the Pedlar. Inside the decor and the tables were different, but of course it's the food that matters. I had the vegetable burrito, which was excellent.... More

Hi & thanks for your nice comments. The same great tasting veggie food WILL still be served with the only addition to the new menu being fish & seafood which we expect will give a little more variety to customers, especially from April when we reopen into the evenings and also to our local customers over the winter months when...

We often come here for a family lunch when visiting Keswick - the cakes are excellent and the nachos are huge, all requirements after a big day biking!

Had hoped to have a pudding but alas we had no room this time, so had to make do with a coffee. Friendly service - new people in charge, but we recognised the staff from previous... More

I live locally and used to love coming here. It once had a great atmosphere, friendly staff, lovely decor and great food. I went in yesterday for a coffee and found that all the staff have changed over the past year, and don't care about the service they provide. The coffee was overpriced and the staff were having a meeting... More

We think this is from another shop as the staff have not changed, the prices have not changed, the chefs have not changed and customer service from all yhe front of house staff is excellent. Please do not show. More
