Some friends and I went for lunch and were pleasantly surprised to find it busy! Being rather out of the way, it can be hard for places like this to keep trade ticking over. Good choice of sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes, specials such as meat and potatoe pie and daily specials such as omlette. Good selection of coffee and tea... More

Second time we have been to this place, first time just for coffee and cake. Second time me and my good lady plus our 5 kids and two grand parents went for lunch, fantastic food and great hospitality set in a hidden hideaway. Not a great fan of chain eateries and a pleasure to spend money on local people making... More

We went yesterday ( Sunday) on a search for scones and we didnt really know if it was still open. The premises are a great setting and the choice of drinks and food ideal for a light lunch. The staff were very polite and helpful and everything was reasonably priced. We will definately be calling again soon. In addition to... More

Very much off the beaten track in the heart of Furness, about five minutes' drive from the A5087 Ulverston-Barrow 'Coast Road'. On a sunny day, it was very pleasant to sit at outside tables, in a narrow, peaceful valley and alongside Gleaston's historic water mill. Pot of tea for two provided a couple of large cups each. Topped off with... More

I came to the cafe after seeing a sign on the coast road for it and was surprised to see a traditional cafe. I was greeted warmly by the staff and the menu had a huge choice for a cafe. The specials were so tempting that I had to try the pie. I was dying to try a cake after... More

Three of us dropped in for a 'quick bite' last week. Cheerful welcome from attentive staff. The baked potato s were generouly filled with a delicious sauce. The sweet chilli chicken panni was one of the best I've ever ordered. All the food was reasonably priced. Drinks a little more pricy, but extra water was happily provided for the pots... More

Gorgeous cakes, delicious food with generous portion sizes for a reasonable price. Friendly, clean, and with a real log-burning stove the atmosphere is lovely. Plus, they make the best hot chocolate I've ever tasted! And after sampling their full English breakfast, I've booked family and friends in for one on New Year's Day.

Stopped at Dusty Millers for brunch today and we were not disappointed. The food was freshly prepared, really tasty and beautifully presented. We would definitely recommend you make a date to stop by and do not do as we did and not make room for desert. We plan to return very soon as missed out on sampling the Sticky Toffee... More
