Pleasant cafe serving good tea

I had a pot of tea and some gluten-free lemon drizzle cake. The tea was excellent, the cake was good. The staff are friendly, the cafe is pleasant if a little on the warm side, and the location is very nice.

This tearoom is a favourite haunt of our family mainly because it offers a choice of five different crumbles with ice cream, cream or custard and the curried lentil soup is perfect after a long walk on the fells.

Classic old school tea room - perfect for unwinding after a hearty walk in the countryside; opposite a lovely country church. If you are lucky and extremely polite you may get the recipe for the amazing scones!

This tea room looks lovely, but it is hardly ever open - just sometimes at weekends. It's such a pity as it is probably the best view in Sedbergh, overlooking St Andrew's Church and down Finkle Street. It does absolutely nothing for Sedbergh to have a café in such a prominent position that is almost always closed.

On a dismal day a friend and I chanced upon this cafe, having originally decided to have a pub lunch! We glanced at the menu on our way to the pub and were ''hooked'' but the choice, particularly since I am a vegetarian and several of the options were non-meat and sounded interesting. The welcome was warm, service friendly and... More

The lights of this great little café shone like a beacon through the gloom of the very wet Sunday afternoon. A friendly welcome and good, fresh food soon warmed us up! Lovely!
