“Very good food - maybe too much”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had coffee, scone & cheesecake. All were excellent. My only thought was that they could reduce the portion size & price - there was way too much, but really lovely.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback - portion size can be a tricky one as it's different for everyone but we'd rather err on the side of generous - sometimes people will share but we very rarely get any coming back to the kitchen which we can only assume as a good sign! Hope to see you at Treeby's again soon.

Best wishes, Libbie

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I went in to Treeby and Bolton's for a morning coffee and a scone, and ended up staying for lunch! Great atmosphere, modern and welcoming, friendly staff and the scones are AMAZING. The gallery upstairs is very nice too, and I look forward to coming back next time I'm in Keswick.

“Lovely lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Just had a lovely lunch at this very nice town centre cafe.
Smart inside and friendly staff who came immediately as we sat down.
Prawn maria rose open sandwich, masses of prawns, thought a shoal had arrived! Bread? Very hard could have been softer.
I had the chicken and tarragon pie with filo pastry which was light and very tasty.
Coffee could have been a little stronger and hotter but still a pleasant lunch.

“Disappointing and apathetic...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Ate lunch today June 19th with family of four adults and two children. They served us an extra tea which was not deducted when identified and took 10 minutes to provide water which we requested for our parched children. I went up and asked the server who blankly looked at me and said "oh, they've been sitting at table six" which was sitting empty. The duck "salad" was ordered which was really a duck SANDWICH with a side of taboulli salad. Another server explained they changed the menu last week but nothing was changed or indicated on the menu. No apology and another blank look with a statement "that is the Salad". I beg to differ that 10 out of 10 diners would NOT refer to it as a "salad". Very apathetic service with average food. Not recommended.
