Called in for lunch after a walk around the village of Shap. Found this delightful, friendly, family run business where all the food was prepared on site along with good coffee!

Lovely menu of tasty meals, snacks and superb choice of home made cakes and scones. A little added touch was the delightful designs of tea cosies on the teapots!

A little expensive but very good quality. The only reason for 4* and not 5* is that no-one said goodbye to us as we left!! It just seemed a little rude as the staff just seemed to watch as we left.
