We visited on a wet afternoon in the Lakes. Lots of people had the same idea so it was pretty busy but I was still impressed with the friendly service. The scones were massive and very tasty. We will definitely be back.

We visited on a Saturday evening for a family celebration and it was perfect. All four generations thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The veggie sharing platter made a great starter with something for everyone and we all found a bit of space to sample the pudding platter. Thanks to Karen, Rob and their team for a very special evening.

I have to agree with a lot of other reviews. Myself & my wife visited for the first time in February. Despite the breakfast menu being available only up to 11.30, we arrived at 11.35, wanted to order the breakfast & they were happy to take our order. The full English was delicious & my wife loved the gluten-free version. Cups of tea were served with little biscuits (again, a gluten free option was available). We were so impressed that we returned the following day to have lunch. This time, we tucked into a delicious, hot shepherds pie with veg. Despite it being busy, the cafe seemed to be set up so that you weren't sitting too close to other tables. The staff were very efficient & friendly. At no point did we feel rushed & the range of gluten-free options was impressive. Strongly recommended.

We visited here for a early lunch whilst on a day trip to Grasmere and it ticked all the boxes for us.

The food was delicious, the staff were very friendly and the portion sizes were very generous, the price was very reasonable as well.

It's in a very handy location right in the middle of the village where the bus stops so it's easy to get too as well.

I would suggest that you try the Cumberland Sausage Baguette with Red Onion Marmalade as it's fantastic.

We would definitely go back if in the area again.

My 8 year old son says Greens is his most favourite place, because the hot chocolate is the best in the world. And he is a hot chocolate connoisseur, so this is high praise indeed.
