Lovely service

Was desperate for ice cream (specifically with a flake) on a very hot day and the gentleman working there admitted they didn't have any flakes but that the ice cream parlour just up the road would have. So impressed that he would be so honest knowing it would mean we wouldn't buy anything there... read more

We called here for the second time in a couple of months for a coffee although our dogs were welcome inside it was pleasant enough to sit. The coffee was lovely and the unexpected offer of top up was gratefully accepted. We haven't eaten there yet but will do so soon and report back!

Went here for breakfast, staff very friendly ordered a full breakfast disappointed that sausage was only one chipolata that was already cooked and warmed up in the microwave as were the beans but bacon eggs and tomato cooked fresh on griddle don't understand why sausages not cooked fresh as well, food was nice for the price.

As a family of four, we had a faultlessly lovely late lunch at this tearoom. Superb friendly service, excellent food, particularly a spectacular array of lovely cakes, and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit, thoroughly recommended.

I am a regular visitor to the Lakes and when in Windermere we always call in here. Nice and homely a little small but this adds to the atmosphere. Love it.

Amazing home made apple pie. I had it warm with a lovely vanilla custard and my girlfriend had it cold with ice cream. Both had a latte which was one of the best we both had. Great little find.

Was different than expected. It's a small cafe with nice home made cakes, but not much by way of ambience. The highlight is the wonderful lady seating us and taking orders... Very good with children. The cake were quite good and the food was ok- basic sandwiches and food available. The jacket potato wasn't bad. Would recommend for a quick... More

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 scones.

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.
