Stopped here after walking from ambleside. Myself and husband had sandwiches and soup. The cafe was really busy but we were served quickly. It was a cold but sunny day and it was nice to see plenty of people out and about the cafe served...More

Hi Dan! Thanks for the glowing review! Really appreciate your kind comments and glad to hear you had an enjoyable visit. Look forward to seeing you again!
The staff really looked like they didn't enjoy working there - miserable. No friendly welcome - no acknowledgment that we had entered at all. No showing us to a table. The coffee and cake we ordered was deposited on the end of the table without...More

Hi Anne, Thank you for your comments, however I really wish you had brought the "tepid" issue to our attention. We could have rectified it immediately and then you could have hopefully had a more enjoyable meal.

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to leave us some nice comments! Glad you enjoyed yourself!
Stopped in Grasmere on a bus tour and found this place along the main road to grab a small bite to eat and nice drink before continuing on. The Chili and hot chocolate were amazing not to mention the excellent service!
Hi Ashley, Thank you so much for the very kind compliments! So glad that we could provide you a great experience. I hope if you are ever in Grasmere again, you come visit us again. Happy New Year!
We stopped in Grasmere as part of a Globus tour. We found this place walking from the bus to the village. We decided to try it and the four of us were very happy with our lunch. The soups were delicious. Good value, prompt service...More
Hi Magnolia, Thank you for taking a moment to leave us a review. We appreciate the kind comments. And yes, as we cater to coach parties, our café can become quite busy one moment, and then be empty the next when everyone arrives and leaves...More
