Their full English was so good we came back twice. Not huge but very tasty and freshly prepared, enough for most people. Coffee cups a bit small for us.

Great menu, suitable for families. Child and pet friendly. Lots to choose from on the menu whatever time of day. Friendly owners and a loyalty card scheme if youre staying for long. The deserts are pretty amazing on a hot day.

Located on the busy main road leading into Ambleside town centre Stiles Coffee Bar is a stylish licensed cafe offering locally roasted coffees, high quality loose leaf teas and freshly prepared food. Our coffee is roasted in Keswick by Carvetti. This coupled with our wide selection of beers, wines and cider along with a varied menu offering varied breakfasts, lunch and sharing platters make Stiles the ideal place to rest after a busy day on the fells or by the lake. Finally, we have our very own afternoon tea on a wooden Lake District stile (pre-booking required!). See many more details in our food section. We are a family run cafe and will do everything we can to cater for any specific needs or requests you may have. All of our food is cooked to order and we endeavour to bake all of our cakes ourselves. We guarantee you will love our scones (with jam and Rodda's clotted cream!) and hearty home-made soup.
