“No jokes about oats, please.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014

Great service and selection of pastries. Beats Ubiquitous coffee chains hands-down. Word of warning ... If you think nobody has cracked a joke about this place selling Quaker Oats before, then the joke is on you!

“Small friendly café with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

This little café is not easy to find on a first visit, but it is worth the effort if you are looking for somewhere quiet with friendly service and a good range of vegetarian food on the menu and in the day's specials.

“A nice peaceful place to snack or take lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Pleasant, helpful staff serve a good, healthy menu of meals and snacks. Plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans. Excellent tasty lunch with unexpected extra salad items on the plate. Always guaranteed to give a good meal and good value.

“A mixed review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

My wife and daughter and I found this tea room on a Lakeland wet day, a really peaceful sanctuary. It is vegetarian, we are not but my daughter especially isn't! We had lunch. My wife and I enjoyed our paninis but daughter had the veggie sausages and didn't like them. It was a lovely welcoming place to sit and while away an hour or so. We were not rushed away. Parking was free. I am sure many will give it a higher rating, ours is brought down one star by our daughter who would only give it two stars!

“My regular light lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

The Meeting House café is a friendly place with cook's specials each day, soup, paninis, baked potatoes with fillings. It is vegetarian and has highest scores on the hygiene ratings. The cheese scones are great, especially toasted. I usually eat there two or three times a week, and feel that the other reviews sound like a different place! There's good coffee, and usually a good choice of cakes.
