A quick coffee and cafe with the kids. We were totally satisfied and so were the boys. Will be good when the building works are completed across the road but didn't spoil our visit.

Really enjoyed a home-made cake and a cup of tea. Considering there's not a huge amount of competition the prices were very reasonable. Dog friendly as well!

we visited here on a midweek afternoon after spending a long day walking on the fells from Paterdale. Great coffee and brilliant cake, unusual twist on the favorites like brownie with honeycomb crunch. Sat in the sunshine on the patio outside.

The menu can be adapted towards any diet requirements. I would suggest calling them in advance. Food is very good value and the homemade bread is delicious. The tea is very weak though.
