Nice cup O tea and a traditional English scone with clotted cream. Perfect way to recharge after a day of 4x4 off road driving

If you are looking for a decent cup of coffee and tasty no nonsense food,then make this your first stop, we had very tasty bacon and egg sandwich and even though it was lunch time, this was no trouble to the friendly hosts, its the perfect little venue to grab some refreshments and when later in the afternoon when we...

So nice to find a quality independant coffee shop. Busy but still fast and friendly service with clean tables and friendly service. Delicious toasties that were fresh, tasty and not greasy or dry like some establishments and the coffee was lovely. My husband is easily tempted by homemade cake and he was very impressed by the two slices he fuelled... More

Nothing to dislike. Very friendly helpful staff and crayons for the young ones so that you can relax. Love it first stop when we visit Windernere.

We had breakfast here twice on a 4 day trip to The Lakes. The service was great, fast and friendly. The breakfast ample and coffee was refilled. Advise on what do do on a very rainy day and use of the wifi was appreciated. A credit to the owners and to Windemere's high street.

It was a lovely little tea room with a great selection of cakes and food. It was a great place to stop and regroup and it was a lovely trip. We could fit in their nickey even though it was cosy and the staff were polite and kind.

Greeted with a smile, an explanation of the special offers and pointed to the rack of free papers and wifi code. Service was fast and coffee top ups offered though I don't know if that is a regular feature. My daughter's sandwich came with crisps which meant she was brought a basket of packets of Tyrells to choose from. A... More

We visited the town of Windermere last weekend, and as our accommodation was 'bed only', we used The brambles for our Saturday morning breakfast. Freshly prepared cooked meals were substantial and tasty. Lovely Staff and well worth a visit. Good value for money and another bonus was the fact it was 'Dog Friendly' so Harvey our Labrador was made welcome,... More
