Excellent little cafe with good range of snacks and meals. Next to stream and with good toilets nearby

Dropped in a couple of times during our recent stay in the Herdy Huts above Rydal Hall. Fantastic location with lots of lovely small walks in the vicinity. The Old School Room sits above the tumbling waterfalls on the Coffin Route and it's worth a...More
Sit back in the relative quiet of the Old School Room Tea Shop for lunch or tea. There are good sandwiches and soup and a fine selection of cakes, tea, and coffee. Inside or outside you can hear the lower falls while you dine. Fine...More
As a group of local mountain bikers we have used this tea room a lot over the years and NEVER had any issues with service or the quality of the food..... Unfortunately things have changed. The tea shop is now under new management and has...More
We stopped for tea on a walk. Good selection and good service in pleasant surroundings with both indoor and outdoor seating
Thank you for your review. We look forward to seeing you again.
Sit outdoors in fine weather or choose the warmth and comfort inside when it's chilly. The menu is comprehensive but we stick to brie and cranberry panninis with a cuppa. The staff are efficient and friendly and the place is clean. The inadequate toilet facilities...More
Thank you for your review. You may not have noticed that the campsite toilet block is now available to Tea Shop visitors, providing much improved toilet facilities for our customers. We look forward to seeing you again at Rydal Hall.
After a walk in the rain we were looking forward to a warm welcome and some nice tea and cake. The cakes were delicious but the welcome rather tepid! Arriving around 4pm it was obvious that the staff couldn't wait to clear up for the...More
Thank you for taking the time to provide your review. Whilst it is true that the Tea Shop closes at 4pm, clearly it was totally unacceptable that you were treated the way you were when you visited and for this we apologise unreservedly. We would...More
Me and my wife have visited here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. This was our first visit this year and having read some recent reviews, we didn't notice a change of management. As always the tea and coffee were great....More
Thank you for your review. We look forward to seeing you again at Rydal Hall.
We've stopped here on a number of occasions, whilst walking in the area. There are tables outside by the waterfall or inside if it is raining. The soups are always nice, but now served with a bread roll instead of the lump of granary bread,...More
Thank you for your kind words. The bread pudding is a new offer on the cake counter, but is already proving a real hit! We look forward to seeing you again. Bring your mother in law too, we can have a bake-off!
Be aware the toilets have been moved and are now no longer behind the cafe but diagonally opposite the front door. A great cafe as just when you fancy a brew here it is - as ever fantastically expensive for a coffee but a range...More
Thank you for your review. All of our coffee is freshly-brewed rather than instant and prices start from £1.95 which is on a par with other places in the area and lower than chain coffee shops. Just to let you know that our campsite toilets...More
