After walk to Aira Force on rainy day we pop in Tearoom. They were closing in next 10 minutes but still served us with nice hot chocolate. Nice friendly staff.

Pleasant place to stop for coffee and a sandwich on a trip to Ullswater. The National Trust gets credit for this cafe, but loses it for lack of signage in the Aira Force itself, where it is easy to get lost in the winding paths.

One of the better National Trust cafes - homemade cakes and sandwiches (which were delish), the tea even came in a proper teapot! Sat outside on a lovely day, and food was welcome after a hike up to the head of the river.

A little oasis after a lot of hiking in a very very cold day. Delicious teas, delicious soup, delicious bread, delicious scones, jam and cream! What’s not to like! Highly recommended - pleasant and efficient service 🎈

Stopped here after visiting Aira Force for something sweet to give us some energy for the last leg home. We had a tea cake with jam and a slice of caramel chocolate shortbread. YUM! Staff also helped us to try and find our way back.

This place is spotless. The staff are full of useful and local info and gave us a great walk idea. Mostly serves tea, coffee, cakes, scones, sausage rolls etc. Well worth a visit.
