We had a lovely lunch here. The sharing platter for 2 people was delicious. The atmosphere is lovely, and it is obviously a very popular place.

Visited potted out a couple of weeks ago for a bite to eat whilst visiting grasmere. The cafe is in a lovely setting on the main road and had lots of good outdoor seating but unfortunately it turned out to be style over substance. The service was slow. We all waited ages to be served, then ages for our food... More

A wonderful café in a picturesque setting, overlooking the river. What more could you want?! Great service, and great food I hear you say, well this place has both! After a long day exploring Grasmere and its surrounds my girlfriend and I decided to stop by here for an impromptu dinner, and we were both very glad we did! The... More

We ate here our first night in Grasmere. Kids pizza was good and came quickly. I wouldn't recommend adding pancetta though as it was a bit too fatty/chewy for a child in my opinion. For the adults, we had the lasagna and smoked salmon risotto both were nice and came out hot! Only complaint about the lasagna was there wasn't... More

Took shelter here yesterday during an absolute deluge. It had a very pretty outside eating area by the river which would be beautiful on a drier day. We sat inside to escape the downpours!! The large tomato & bacon soup was delicious, piping hot & came with some delicious ciabatta bread. The soup & sandwich option was also delicious and... More

We found this cafe when it was raining a lot! It looked really appealing and turned out to be quite nice. The food was fantastic and they served Peroni on tap. The service was good and will definitely come again.

We ate here one evening and really enjoyed our food. We didn't have to wait long despite them being very busy. We sat on a table outside and it was a pleasant atmosphere. I had the homemade lasagne which was absolutely delicious, one of the best I've ever eaten. My Mum ate the chicken pappardelle and it was full of... More

A lovely meal was had by both of us. Very quick to come, hot and fresh. Very polite, courteous staff and decent value, not too expensive.
