We were a family of 8 and found plenty of space to sit and have lunch. A good selection of food and drinks which all arrived very quickly. Food was very good and will come back again.

A few days away in Grasmere lead us to this venue for dinner. It was OK, dinner was good but pretty average for the price. Not much to choose from on the menu if you don't like spice.

We visited here for our evening meal after a stroll around Grasmere. We both had pizzas, which were large and delicious! The service was friendly and quick and the food was great value for money.

Enjoyed scones,jam and cream with lashings of pots of tea and coffee in a sun trap of a patio just watching the world go by. Very pleasant, relaxing afternoon, Value for money, So just stop rushing around and enjoy. Ps. It is licensed so you can still enjoy a wine or beer.
