Wow - the farm shop is amazing. We had tea and cake in the restaurant. Unfortunately it's not dog friendly but they had a great selection of cakes and the food menu looked great too. You order at the counter then it's brought out to you.

I've never been disappointed with a meal at Mainsgill, even though the place is always buzzing. The home-grown produce is always tasty, and particularly the apple and raspberry pie with fresh cream, mmmmm! Not a particularly easy exit right onto the A66 but well worth a visit.

Most Farm Shops over price themselves but Mainsgill doesn't. we went on the 12th Jan 2017 for my Mums birthday lunch. Mum and I had a huge fruit scone, lashings of cream which we could only manage half of, butter, jam and fresh strawberries along with a pot of tea - for under £5.00 each. the place is beautifully kept,...

Both the tearoom and farm shop are well worth a visit. Tearoom food was excellent although the menu is limited. Service was friendly and efficient. The cake and dessert options are a highlight. The farm shop and gift shop are both excellent. Lots of variety and great range.

Visited today, being bank holiday it was busy but their ordering and service system didn't do them any favours. A few simple tweaks would make for a more efficient customer experience. People only wanting cakes and drinks should be able to order at a separate point and not have to queue with those ordering hot food, this would have prevented... More

Stopped for breakfast whilst travelling on A66 to Lake District one grey December morning. Tasty farm reared food at prices which reflect its quality. Restaurant well laid out with friendly and efficient service. Shop itself is an emporium of farm produce and products which are designed to fit a countryside lifestyle. Good experience- recommend.

We often visit Mainsgill as it lies between ourselves and the in-laws and is a good mid-point to meet. We often have to wait in a queue for some time before ordering and finding a table, though staff will find a table quickly for my wife's elderly Nanna. Food at Mainsgill is good and wholesome, whether soup and bread or... More
