Stench of wet dog and filthy sticky tables should have been enough to put us off but everywhere else was full. Ordered 2 full English breakfasts and a kids meal for £27 with teas and a lemonade for it to arrive almost stone cold. We...More

We've just come back from a day in Grasmere and I'm a bit shocked at these reviews. We genuinely commented to ourselves how friendly the waiter was. Another chap jumped up to put two tables together for us as soon as we came in, and...More

We popped in to the Cumbrian early one morning for breakfast (having driven into Grasmere the back way, not realising it had so much more to offer just a little further along the road). We stood in the empty seating area in front of the...More

Short of time, with only 40 minutes until our bus was due, we popped into The Cumbrian for a quick light lunch. "Homemade Vegetable Soup and Our Freshly Baked Bread" was undoubtedly commercially-produced soup accompanied by a small roll of the part-baked variety readily available...More
