Expected more from a tea room, especially after the good reviews. Staff weren't particularly friendly, when asked if we could swap the breakfast tea for Earl Grey they said it would be more expensive but didn't state how much. Scones were lovely but wasn't a relaxing afternoon tea, wouldn't bother visiting again.

We visited St Martins tea rooms for tea and carrot cake on 22nd April 2015. The tea was excellent and the carrot cake was to die for. Our Westie also got a couple of dog treats. Very friendly and welcoming place.

We just stumbled across this café on a trip to Bowness. We indulged in the cream tea which was fantastic with fresh scones baked that morning. I right little find just behind the high street so no mad crowds! Definitely recommend a little visit - lunches look really nice too.

Stopped here whilst having a day out in Windermere with the family and the lunch and service was excellent. The cafe only take cash no card service but this is not a major issue I would recommend this for a nice quick lunch!!!!

Milky coffe tasted of nothing, if you like real coffee try Cafe Italia in windermere or somewhere else. Homemade cakes, is a joke!!!

We called in for lunch having read the other reviews. It's not an easy place to find but if you ask for the Post Office in Bowness, you'll find the tea room just next door. We ordered toasted sandwiches and, despite a bit of a hiccup in the order, they were delicious and the accompaniments were plentiful. The red cabbage... More

Went there with family. 2 young kids. Free juice for kids. Noted baby friendly toilet for babies. Served basic lunch things. Kids sandwich was £4 with a small bowl of chips. A toasted sandwich was over £6. Coffee was not great but not undrinkable. Carrot cake was a bit dry. Surprised was ranked number 2 for area on trip advisor.... More

We stopped off here for an afternoon snack after trekking over the hills of The Lakes for a cuppa and a bite to eat. We were greeted with a very warm welcome by the staff and were made to feel at home from the moment that we walked in. My other half fell in love with the freshly baked cheese... More
