“Wonderful coffee, next time...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We dropped in not knowing the place before. We sat outside overlooking Derwent water and had a really nice coffee, the service was excellent and the environment out of this world. The Sunday dinner menu looked great and not badly priced either, we will be returning.

“Cream Tea...yum yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stopped and had cream tea..absolutely delightful. Nice and clean, excellent service will stop here again on our next visit. The meals that passed looked lovely and only wished we hadn't booked dinner at the hotel as could have tried one.

“Lovely tea rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We called in the Dandelion cafe after a walk around the lake and had a cream tea there, which I have to say was very good - the scone was huge & delicious, but the only downside of it was the cream - which seemed to me to be the squirty variety (I could be wrong) but it would have been so much nicer with the good thick stuff. However we still enjoyed them and the cafe is a wonderful big bright cheerful place, and perfect to have a rest after a walk. They also serve draught beer too, which was a plus-point as far as my other-half was concerned :-) We'd definitely visit again for scones and maybe try some of their other food - which all looked delicious.

Went for the first time to the Dandelion Cafe on the weekend to take a break from studying! Had a lovely chili con-carny! Very generous portion for a great price. Had a food baby afterwards! Lovely polite staff, lovely geordie waiter! ;) haha! Would highly recommend, such a shame its so hidden and not very advertised!

“Great food at bottom of Cat Bells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Great food and warm service and lovely grounds in this strange HF hotel. The parking was really easy and we had soup of the day, ham hock, fish and chips - and lots of lovely home made cakes. Really good.
