“We love Poppy Red!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We visit Hawkshead regularly and always try to pay a visit to Poppy Red. Out of all the places for a coffee and a snack with friends or just the kids this is our favourite.
Homemade and friendly served food with a cute little house shop what more can you ask for.
It is run and worked in by locals who have a real desire to please and sell the village at its best and they should all be very proud about what they do.

“Nice Coffee Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Nice place to stop for something to eat or drink, sat outside as it was a lovely day. Good atmosphere and great to sit and enjoy the surroundings. If weather a bit cool there is fleece blankets on the chairs to snuggle up in. Had coffee and cake served by friendly happy staff. Well worth a visit.

“netvigator”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We went to Hawkshead on a day trip from Ambleside on the bus.We noticed on the back of the bus ticket an offer of 10% off food and drink at Poppi Red.Too good an offer to miss!We had tea/coffee and toasted teacakes,everything was very good.The place itself is a bit too "busy" for me but I am sure other people would disagree.Value for money was very good and with the offer it was excellent.

“ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SHOPS...EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The buyer from this shop must have excellent taste. I love everything in it. My favourite piece of jewellery is from this shop. It is very shabby chic selling jewellery, home bits, bags AND delicious tea and cakes - all set in the gorgeous village of Hawkeshead. Worth a visit girls.
