We are not in Cumbria very often but when we are, we always visit this place for lunch. The food is fantastic, not a huge menu but that's a good thing since it is all made on the premises. Meals are full of flavour, made with care and with fresh, exciting salads on the side. Huge portions (possibly too big... More

Although I have never sat down and had a meal here, I have been in here many times to purchase foods like pies, pastries and sweet treats. Everything is good quality and reasonably priced, you get a good amount of food for the price. If you are passing through Kirkby and don't have a time, to sit down and eat... More

We have been for lunch here before and its always busy. A bakery at the front of the shop and café with open fires at the back. I had soup and smoked salmon and cream cheese bagette and this came to £7.25 - way too much food for me to eat. My daughter had a jacket potatoes and this came... More

After getting totally soaked in Windermere, we decided to travel to the bakery in Kirkby Lonsdale on the way home, after hearing a positive report. We paid for parking and headed straight there. We went in and asked for a table if a table of 3 was available. The answer from the waitress was simple ---- No.... I think her... More

Cannot praise this bakery enough. Food is first rate and great value for money. Many restaurants can learn from this place in how to prepare and serve high standard fare. This is an exceptional bakery which is head and shoulders above many eating establishments that we have frequented. We are looking forward to returning in the new year.

Warm service in the cafe ; with the open range fire and the delightful staff. The bakery is amazing - I've been eating custard pies from here since I was eleven years old and now my son always expects one if I've been anywhere near the area! Not to mention that my work place has started to demand the carrot... More

We called at the bakery to collect surplus bread, scones and cake which they had kindly donated to our pay-as-you-feel cafe in Lancaster. Whilst we were there we stayed for lunch, the staff were lovely, friendly and really helpful. Food was lovely and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend, particularly when it is cold out... the fire was lit and we... More
