Visited Windermere today and happened upon Brambles Tea Rooms. Lots on offer, good value and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Books and newspapers to browse and ultra fast service. Thank you Brambles! Will definitely visit next time I'm in the area. X

Nice cosy little cafe with friendly staff. The dog was also welcomed inside which was great as it was a very cold day. Recommend the local tea and the cake servings were huge.

Paid our regular visit again. We always come whenever we visit the Lakes. Not tried the lemon cake before, it was scrumptious. Lovely to catch up with Amanda again. We look forward to our next visit!

Tea and biscuits were just what we were after on our jaunt around the countryside. What a lovely name, it suits well as it's cosy inside with a friendly waitress. They also do more hearty food if you are hungry, but we had already over eaten at our hotel so the hot tea was most welcome on such a drizzly... More

Looked for a little bite to eat at 3pm NYE and luckily this lovely quaint place was open. Very friendly. Great basic easy menu. Has soup of the day, beef goulash - an Hungarian delight for my Hungarian princess. Followed by a simple sausage baguette between us. Coffee and a pot of tea (3 cups worth 😆) for £12. Thoroughly...

We have been twice here and on cold days it is lovely to walk in to a lovely warm welcome and quick and efficient service. When you are feeling cold, drinks arrive quickly and no long wait for food which is lovely and fresh. The soups are lovely. It is not a very big café and therefore is quite cosy... More
