Very well stocked shop which saves a drive into Keswick. Also has off licence if you don't want to use the pub. Open until 7pm so good if you have been out on the hills. Use it or lose it!

It's great that the shop has re- opened, we did miss it on our trips to Braithwaite. It's well stocked and has good quality foods etc. served by friendly staff. Glad we can get the daily papers without going far.

Staying locally at Bisoi guest house. Walked for Sunday newspaper. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely village to visit. If time can have tea/coffee sat in sunshine.

Definitely worth supporting one of the local businesses devastated by the floods. Helpful, and cheerful, staff made for a pleasant visit. Good stock of food, milk, alcohol, papers etc. Opening times extended in summer season, so makes it even more convenient.
