I only used the cafe which served wonderful cakes and lovely hot drinks. I had the cream tea which came with freshly made cream and home made jam.

Potting Shed Café offers very good food. Fish and chips was excellent with delicate batter. My whole party of five were well satisfied with smoked salmon and prawn sandwich as well as the humble ham and cheese. Generous helpings and great service.

This place is so beautiful. Grasmere was full of tourists on that weekend but I could feel the tranquility. It is surrounded by small hills and greenery. Must visit place in Lake District.
