Absolutely lovely afternoon tea. The staff were welcoming and friendly and couldn't do enough to please us. The service wax attentive and kind. We were allowed to swap sandwich filling as my husband doesn't like eggs. The portions were generous and everything was tasty and fresh. They offered us refills of coffee pot and teapot but it was not required... More

Very disappointed in service and unable to offer bespoke cake designs so false advertising on website! Had to chase replies to my enquiry a number of times. Look elsewhere I wouldn't trust them with a cake for a special occasion!

Popped in as it looked cute and quaint. Cakes were a bit strange and ok at best. Don't maximise their space or potential here, so giant space with bakery counters on 2 different sides but cramped tables. No obvious flow or sense of service here. Would be good but needs imagination to bring it up to spec.

Lovely good quality tea room with waitress service. It gets very busy so you may not get seated. The food we had was traditional fare and was very tasty.

I've been coming to this place since I was a kid. A lovely, quintessentially British tea room above their shop, serving a good range of dishes to suit all tastes. Could probably do with a touch of modernisation but has charm in bucketloads.

We always call in here for our lunch en route to Ambleside. The lakeland rarebit is just delicious and the choice of cakes is too tempting.

We both had lasagne for lunch which was served with a choice of jacket potatoes or chips and salad. We both had chips which were the best, large and crisp. I had the vegetable lasagne which was so tasty and filling. My husband had the meat lasagne which he said was the best. The service was good, although they seemed... More

The title says it - we enjoyed excellent quality food in a popular location yet it was not exorbitantly priced.

Have visited Brysons on many occasions but decided to write a review after a visit yesterday. Apparently they had been very quiet earlier in the day but when we arrived we got one of the last tables available after that people were being turned away with a 30 minute wait for food. Other half predictable as usual - fish and... More
