First visit to this tranquil place, with a poorly Mum upstairs we couldn't devote time to walking into Ulverston for food.

Beautiful location, bright and welcoming. Food is freshly cooked and very tasty with a new specials board each day. It is a lovely relaxed place to dine

Call in for lunch and had scampi and chips in a basket. Cooked to perfection and served by the enthusiastic volunteers. The sticky toffee pudding we had for afters succeeded in being flavoursome without being too sweet.

The Orangery is set in a nice location near Hoad monument with beautiful surroundings. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent!

Nice surroundings, inside and outside seating. Staff are all volunteers and it is nice to support the local hospice. There is also a nice gift shop with great cards and gift ideas.

My mum, two young daughters and myself visited the Orangery for lunch recently and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There are building works ongoing which restricted parking and took a little but away from the atmosphere. Obviously this can't be helped. I would recommend going early for lunch as it is very busy and the tables get snapped up. The menu is... More

The view is lovely and the overall atmosphere is very relaxed. The volunteers that run this café are all very friendly and work well together. Food nice and hot just as it should... More

Went for breakfast with my wife: bothe breakfast baps were tasty. Service was friendly albeit a bit chaotic but I gather the place is run by volunteers - so well done to the volunteer army.

I've had lunch here several times as I like buying from the hospice shops when I am in the lake district, so I try and have lunch at their HQ to support them too. This cafe is lovely, although on the outskirts of Ulverston town centre. If you don't mind a bit of a walk to be rewarded by fine... More
