After finishing an excellent meal, I felt I must compliment the staff personally, for the fine meal I had just eaten. Sometimes it's just that good ! Keep up the good work folks.

Stopped here with the family after a trip on the Ullswater Steamer. The wild boar burger was delightful and the coffee was fantastic. Excellent baby changing facilities also.

If you’ve just staggered down from the fells then there is nothing more refreshing than a cup of tea in this wonderful little cafe. Spotlessly clean, dog friendly and great cream tea. Must visit.

Really lovely little cafe- they do fantastic breakfasts which aren’t overpriced and it’s a nice stop in the afternoon. If you’re a coffee lover you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how good the coffee is too.

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.
