I had the forest fruit icecream and it was so creamy and nice! I could taste the freshness of their dairy. Also, their lemon cake was tasteful.

Lovely setting but it is in Buttermere so cant be anything but. 🙂 We had a minute steak baguette. The steak was grey, chewy and cold. Decent cuppa and good choice of cakes, don’t expect big pieces tho.
