“Soda Float and Scones to die for!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Visited Baldry's after a long day walking in the sun! Ordered lemonade and cola soda floats and raspberry and blueberry scones. The soda floats were refreshing, just what we needed after a long day, best scones I've ever eaten, packed with fruit and with a generous helping of jam, only criticism would be that the cream was squirty cream instead of clotted cream! But I'm just fussy! Waiting staff were so friendly with a great sense of humour! Will definitely return on our next break to the Lake District!

“Excellent cakes and tea”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We've been coming to Baldry's for many years on our trips to the Lake District. The cakes, tea and service are second to none. The choice is always extensive and service is always prompt and with a sense of humour. You will struggle find better in Grasmere.

“Lovely breakfast and the best tea. A must try when in Grasmere :-)”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We've been here before, about a year ago and had scones and tea, which were lovely. This time we had a full English and vegetarian breakfast. Both of which were lovely. My girlfriend was especially pleased that the vegetarian sausage, was in fact a vegetarian sausage, as opposed to a sausage containing vegetables.

Being fussy, we both had wanted to make changes to the set breakfast. For example, I wanted no black pudding or tomato but an extra bit of toast. Some places get really funny when you try and do this, and or try and charge you for the extra items but not the ones you don't want! This place didn't mind at all.

The place is also dog friendly, and the staff are extremely polite and friendly.

Highly recommend this place.

“An absolute essential part of a Grasmere Visit”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We do love breakfast at Baldrys.
The welcome is second to none, the breakfast is the best around, the coffee just superb.
Never had cheese scones anywhere else that come anywhere near as good.
The cakes are amazing but it is the managers friendly banter and the venue's relaxed atmosphere are what brings us back time and time again.
