Lovely tearoom!!

Wonderful quirky tearoom situated in beautiful rural surroundings. Very friendly and helpful staff, with some lovely pieces of artwork which we purchased whilst here; a momento of our time in the Lake District.

This is a very quiet place for afternoon tea, hidden on the edge of the Lake district, the staff are very friendly and the food second to none, home baking like your Mother used to do. Well worth a visit.

A little bit of the beaten track. Very friendly staff, some of the meals are a little bit small for the price. Scones are beatiful

Popped in here for a quick bit with my dad. Good selection for food, drinks and meal of the day, plus if you want to be different try ordering off menu or a combination eg I ordered sandwiches, chips and cheese with a bottle of red. The place has changed since I was last there are there is a nice... More

After an early afternoon walk up Binsey Fell on 23 June my wife and I headed for Uldale looking for a tearoom more in hope than expectation and found a gem located in the old village school. The walls of the 2 main rooms were adorned with lots of pleasant paintings and with many of the old fixtures and fittings... More

After a long walk with the dogs, we sat outside next to the beck, watching the birds whilst having a pot of tea and the most gorgeous fruit scone with jam and clotted cream. The service was excellent and the staff brought out the tea to us on the bench. Would recommend. Two cups of tea and a scone with... More

Had dinner here on Friday evening. Beer on the terrace with views up to Skiddaw - nice start. Garlic mushrooms to start - delicious! Big portion and very tasty! Main course of chicken stuffed with cheese, sundries tomatoes, and broccoli, wrapped in bacon. Great tasty vegetables too. Puddings were great too. Mae's is a great location, great food and deserves... More

We were staying in the area and visited at lunchtime on our last day. There is a great deal of choice on the menu (including hot dishes) and a good selection of cakes to choose from. The tea rooms are also open on Sunday's for lunch as well as evenings throughout the week (see website for details). Although it may... More

Myself and 3 friends dropped in as we fancied a change after being told about the tea room. Lovely place in a great setting, the staff were very pleasant another food was fantastic quality. We will certainly be back to explore the menu further. Marc

Wonderful little hidden gem. We had bacon butty, sticky toffee pudding, scone and jam and teas. All delicious. Great value for money and a lovely atmosphere with very friendly staff. Setting is fab and you can watch the cows playing in the adjacent field while you have your lunch. Very pretty building and the art for sale is worth a... More
