Best tea room in Windermere, maybe even the Lakes. Superb service, the owners can't do enough for you, it's wonderful. Excellent English breakfast and real clotted cream with the scones, which is something that's not easy to find in the Lakes. Tremendous.

Stopped off here whilst visiting Windermere. Had a lovely meat breakfast which came with toast and endless filter coffee! Couldn’t complain about any part. The food was great and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Going back on the way home. 😊
