On our first visit to the Lake District and Bowness on Windermere we decided to stop and have lunch at this cafe. We were greeted warmly as soon as we arrived and were told about the days specials. We ordered a chuncky fish finger sandwich each and a pot of tea for two. Our sandwich was exceptional, chunky fish fingers... More

Visited here at the end of September for the second time. Waitress said the food would be an hours wait - not sure why as they were not that busy and only serve basic food. Dirty tables, dirty floor with food squashed into the carpet. We had ordered soup and a cup of tea, took AN HOUR AND A HALF... More

We stumbled upon this place and are glad we did. Despite us arriving late we were served a lovely, fluffy, warm scone and a very welcome pot... More

Have visited here every time we visit the lake district, mainly because dogs are allowed inside and have always have had excellent food and service. However this time it was disappointing. It was late in the afternoon and were surprised they were still serving. We ordered tea , crumpets and toasted tea cakes . Our pot of tea arrived promptly,... More

Excellent cafe for lunch. Very Good quality food and fruit juice. Good service. Plenty of outside tables, but not so many inside. Central location, but pleasant surroundings. Would definitely visit again.
