We had a super trip there today- I wish I had chance to take a picture of the amazing food, but the children were too quick! Parking nearby and dogs welcome and you get to see some nice motorbikes too. Pancakes, sundaes, milkshakes all big hits. Will be returning! 👌😄

I stumbled across this place long before I ever went up North, courtesy of a Standard Issue magazine review, so when my two chums and I were planning our Lake District VW Campervan adventure, I suggested that we should go there for our first chow.
