Olde fashioned vegetarian tea room in Ulverston. Soups and light meals available and excellent teas, coffees and of course cakes. We opted for cheese and fig chutney toasted sandwich and brie and cranberry both of which were very tasty. I opted for the Honduras blend coffee - very good. A great place to unwind on a cold winter day.

Met friends here for afternoon tea, and couldn't fault it. Service was excellent, very friendly staff. Selection of cakes is very impressive, and of the one's i tried, they were delicious. Would recommend for a break from shopping in the town.

Visited here whilst on a trip to the lakes

It was well priced and the service was faultless

The tea was good and my cheese toastie lovely. The carrot cake was excellent too.

Only downside (for me) was that is is vegetarian and I do like my meat! That being said there are still plenty of tasty lunches on the menu.

On a very wet early autumn day the Gillam's tearoom was a very welcome find. Helpful and attentive service complimented by the excellent food. A simple tasty jacket potato with roasted vegetables & salad expertly prepared and presented. The coleslaw with the salad being the best I have ever eaten. Followed by a very generous slice of carrot cake, (a very pleasant hint of cinnamon in there somewhere, delicious), all accompanied by a very acceptable cafetiere of Columbian coffee. This is a proper tearoom, enjoy it. It doesn't have to be a wet, miserable Monday in Autumn, go anytime and be sure of a warm welcome and some 'make you glad to be alive' refreshment.
