I visit this cafe and shop often and enjoy everything it offers. From the Aladdin's Cave of its shop with its wholefood, ethical and environmentally friendly offerings, to the cafe itself for a leisurely spiced coffee and a homemade teacake, to the pop-up monthly restaurant...More

So good we visited twice in one day! Tea cakes and tea then lunch and more tea. Lunch was very popular but helpful waitress suggested return in 20 minutes which was successful. Would definitely visit again.

Called in to this fascinating shop / tea room for drink & snack break whilst shopping in town. The aroma from the shop's supply of tea & coffee products is tempting & the quality & choice of meals, snacks & drinks enough for any taste....More

Ordered the afternoon tea, uninteresting sandwiches, one choice of cake that was soggy and too large. The scones were dry as was the cream, couldn't decipher between the jam flavours...friendly service and lovely inside.. May try the savoury dishes if I went again...

We travelled here because we had seen it on TV and it looked very attractive. It's a shame because the place looks so nice and the concept of an old fashioned tea shop is great. The service was fine but the food was not good....More

Reason for visiting Ulverston was to see Gillam's tearoom/shop since seeing it recently on TV -it was as small as expected, good service and excellent cheese scones were enjoyed, various types of tea were for sale and we enjoyed hearing about the history of the...More
