“excellent service and food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

If i was going to eat anywhere in Barrow I would recomend the custom house.

Service is excellent, menu choice is brilliant and also a wide range of choice of drinks depending on the time of day.

I went the other day and left with a smile due to the atmosphere and friendly staff.

“Afternoon delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went for after non tea to celebrate my daughters exam results. We phoned in the morning to book and they were fine fitting us in, do we booked the extra. It was bliss from beginning to end. Fresh sandwiches, cakes and pastries, fresh cream scones and luscious jam mmmmmm. We loved the natural sugar cubes, the delicate tea cups, milk jug and teapot. It was like playing tea parties as grown ups, and no mud pies in sight hahaha. We loved the whole niche of afternoon tea, with the cake stand and a china teacup and saucer. All that was missing was sugar tongs! The staff were polite and friendly, nothing was too much trouble and my daughter felt like a princess. We will be making this a tradition every school holiday as special mother and daughter time.

“Great menu choice, always well prepared.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Always my first choice when eating out in Barrow. Something for all tastes, with imaginative specials changed monthly to keep the experience fresh. Good all day, from breakfast to a romantic dinner for two.
