Found this little place tucked away in notorious rip-off Windermere. Excellent value, lovely food, friendly, obliging and helpful staff. So dog friendly too. Comfy settee. Seek it out and give the chains/expensive 'tea-rooms' a miss!

Had a gorgeous cream tea here. Top notch pot of tea with warm scone. Try the cherry jam, it's a major treat. Pucker clotted cream too. This place is a little gem hidden up a side street. Very friendly staff and great service.
