We enjoyed an excellent cooked breakfast here before taking to the hills. Really good portions and excellent quality sausages and bacon. The well-stocked children’s toy box was a bonus!

We came here after a walk to Greenside mine. We had a sandwich (which was a great) followed by a cream tea (pretty large scone, but very tasty!!) We probably could / should have shared!! Friendly staff. Would recommend.

Helvellyn Kitchen is immaculate. When you walk in you sense the pride they have in their business. The breakfasts are very good and the bread is all made in the premises. Best breakfast I’ve ever had.
