Stopped by for tea and cake after a day of walking & this is by far the best tea shop in the Keswick area. Amazing scones, lovely hot chocolates, fab millionaires shortbread, and superb chocolate cake (gluten free - couldn't tell!) Gorgeously clean, lots of tables. Highly recommend

Stopped at this lovely tearoom while out walking, excellent soup with toasted ciabatta and delicious cake to finish. Spotlessly clean, not been in since refurbishment everything was top notch, definitely be back.

I have visited The Chalet a couple of times before, on my way back to Keswick after walking round Derwentwater. This time was no less enjoyable. The tea is both delicious and hot and the food on the specials board certainly looked tempting. I did manage to resist, but the Crumpet Welsh Rarebit looked amazing and I will definitely make...

Had coffee and cheese scones. Fresh scones made on the day. Often cheese scones don't have much cheese in them but these were well filled. A great place.
