Gorgeous hot dog followed by tea and stunning scones with clotted cream! Would highly recommend this place! Staff very friendly and you could tell the chef was proud of his work!

A wonderful spot for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea - offers a takeaway service too! Baby changing facilities were spot on along with having a very comfy high chair. The food was home made and delicious. Great range of cakes and savoury options. Free juice for children. Central location with indoor and outdoor seating xx

We live local to this cafe but had not visited for a while after a couple of disappointing experiences re service from the previous owner. We called in with friends who had come to visit us to see how the new owners were running things. We were really pleased to find the new owners had improved on service and the... More

Very welcoming staff and, of course, bring your dog in! They do have tables outside as well but we chose to sit in because there were 4 of us and tables outside were twos and... More

Over several years of holidaying in Bowness, my sister and I have often intended to give the cafe a try. We both decided we fancied a jacket potato and St Martins Tea Room and Grill had a good selection, plus fillings on the menu. Warm and welcoming staff greeted us and the food was just what was required. A generous... More

The proprietor and his wait staff were very friendly and hospitable. It was a lovely place to be after touring Lake Windermere.

Lovely welcome and a very tasty lunch. Very friendly staff and a biscuit or two for our dog, Clydie. Had two of the daily specials which were well presented. Would have returned for the afternoon tea but strangely did not include sandwiches. Cakes looked lovely. Have read some of the previous comments re the cakes not being home made. COSTCO... More
