Only popped in for a coffee/hot chocolate. But wished we'd had breakfast or lunch! Menu looked interesting and varied. As did the range of home make cakes. Hot chocolate was stuffed with cream and marshmallows. There are lots of places to choose in Grasmere but this is worth looking for.

We went in for breakfast on both days of our trip because we loved the food so much. The lovely man offered all gluten and dairy free options and gave us great tips for walking that day and the next day! Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting breakfast staying in Grasmere! great service by all staff!

A must-visit if you're in the Lake District. Fantastic for vegans and my boyfriend enjoyed his meat dish too. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. Can't fault it! Had 3 courses and they were all superb.

We always visit Green's when in the area, we have for many years, and have never had a bad (or even average) experience yet. Always clean, warm and comfortable, with outside seating for those who wish. Good menu with superb choice for veggies and coeliacs, cake choice is also brilliant. The service is prompt and friendly, and the prices acceptable,... More
