Nipped in for lunch after passing earlier in the day when it was very busy which is what swung it for us. We weren't disappointed but it wasn't great either. We ordered panini's and although they were nice they were definitely not what we were expecting.

On a walking holiday we were lunch time passing traffic. Most people seemed to be tucking with gusto into Pizzas, Pannini and the like and there was a buzz about the place. There was also restaurant fare. A large portion of pink roast lamb slices with generous head of sweet roasted garlic could not be faulted, The starter size portion of Penne with home made lamb ragout was enough for a mains, liberally decorated with fresh basil and delicious. A good choice of wine by the glass and local speciality beers. Service was a bit on the solemn side.

Good quality lamb dishes, well seasoned and nicely presented. Pasta dishes of equal good standard. Choice of local speciality beers (bottled) and nice house wine rounded off very reasonable eating experience. Not quite sure if layout, ambience and general approach (last food orders at 8.30pm) gives the clear distinction between daytime quality cafe and evening ("finer dining") restaurant feel. A rather cool room temperature on a miserable November evening might have contributed to these latter impressions. However, foodwise deserves a very good rating.

The prices are competitive for Grasmere, £9 for a pizza, we chose the spicy bolognese and the panchetta ones. Both were pretty tasty and the side of chips were, well chip like and hit the spot. I echo the comments about the staff, not very friendly and a bit blunt although it could be a lost in translation thing as none of them are English. Overall though I would recommend if you are in Grasmere and looking for a bite to eat.
