Service was a bit chaotic in here, despite it being only half full, we had to approach the counter to get our food order taken after waiting a while, whilst others were served at the table promptly. However, the gluten free selection was brilliant and the food we had was very tasty. I ordered the bowl of soup, rather than a cup, it was more than enough and the bread roll accompaniment was warm and delicious. We ordered some gluten free cake to take away and it was wrapped in celophane and tied with a bow.

Wonderful! Warm and cosy just what you want when its chucking it down with rain outside. We visit every year, usually in October, accompanied by the grand parents. As usual the hot chocolate was superb, the cappuccino a coffee lovers delight and this year the sausage rolls and scones with jam and cream hit the spot. Well worth the visit, we look forward to next October.

Greens was recommended by the owners of the guest house where we were staying due to my wife's gluten intolerance. When we arrived, not only was there just as much choice for gluten free and vegetarian meals as there was for the normal menu, the food was absolutely superb, so much so that we returned every night. All too often, those with special dietary needs are left with very little choice but no so here. All the food is home made and so tasty that I also had two meals from the gluten free choices. The service is excellent, no long waits between courses and the owners, Robin and Karen, go out of their way to make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Whether you have special dietary needs or not, I would recommend Greens for a lovely meal.

We went to Grasmere during a rest day while walking the Cumbria Way. While ordering lunch the owner/cook came out and asked if we had walked the Coast to Coast Walk two years earlier. Remarkably we had, and she had remembered us. Wow! This is a great place for fresh, high quality food. We have eaten there three times and would make special trip to Grasmere to eat there again. The food and service make this restaurant a cut above.
