First port of call for a cream tea on arriving in Lakes, having seen this tea room establish on TV we wanted to sample the goods. They serve lovely scones, choice of jams and great big pot of tea for two. We were asked several times if we had enough of everything. Well worth a visit and enjoy the... read more

Every time we come to this cafe it is always very popular. We had a lovely lunch here last week. The staff are very friendly.

the menu included more than just bakery choices but we reveled in being somewhere with afternoon tea again. Vast number of choices, the neighboring tables having well presented plates as well

Brambles is quite a small tea shop but has a great range of home made cakes made fresh every day. There are also games and books that can be played and read whilst partaking in a light snack. Very good value for money and great for kids.

Quite clearly the best tea room in Windermere, but don't just take my word for it - make sure you read about 10 other reviews to get a balanced opinion. The owners Amanda and Kev are so hospitable! Would definitely go back. The Victoria Sponge there was lovely!!

Generally ok, but front of house person had obviously got out of bed the wrong side when we were in for breakfast ! Attitude was quite surly and not welcoming! When I asked apologetically if I could not have certain items on the all day breakfast and perhaps they could substitute any other times (didn't mind what~~) because of my... More

Stopped here by chance and both had tuna and salad baguettes with pot of tea followed by scones with butter jam and cream. Superb! and served by a lovely friendly lady.

Just had the worst value bacon baguette I've ever seen, granted it was a takeaway and maybe the quality differs if you eat-in but I will not be ordering from here again as very disappointed - the baguette was very-nearly anaemic and as for the bacon there was two slithers in there - I've lived in Windermere now 20 years...

We came here for lunch on 08/04/15. Service was excellent and speedy. Everybody was friendly. Food was of a good standard. Bacon butties and a cheese and onion toastie. Unfortunately the cheese wasn't melted but I enjoyed it anyway. Boys then had excellent ice creams . Would definitely go again next time in the lakes.😀
