Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Popped in on Sunday for a late bite to eat after having a wild camp. My partner had the soup and toastie deal and must admit I was slightly jealous, although I also enjoyed mine. The ham and cheese was of a good quality which...was nice to see. I had the pasta which was also lovely. Staff were really friendly and nice which makes all the difference and found us a place in the shade to eat out the back. A pleasant little surprise to find and will be back again in the future.More

A fabulous friendly cafe with so many gluten free options. The staff are really attentive and knowledgeable and as a coeliac I felt really safe eating there. Do try the gluten free chocolate and orange cake. !

We came upon this lovely bistro on a day trip to Grasmere. We were so impressed by the owners friendliness who took the time to chat with us despite the busyness of the Bank holiday Monday. Our lunch was so delicious. Everything homemade. Nothing was...to much, even down to toasting my delicious cheese scone. We finished our meal with homemade coffeecake(family recipe) and bakewell tart. Stunning! We can't wait to return again.More

We had just under a hour on a coach trip and popped in here as it caters for allergies and I have a gluten intolerance. It was very friendly and after asking about allergies I got told about all the options they had that were...gluten free. We both went for the tomato and basil soup and I got the option of white or brown gf bread. Our food was delicious and portions were of a really good size. Would 100% recommend.More

If I could give 10 stars for service I would. We were on a bus tour and had only a half hour, no problem were totally looked after in a very timely manner. Food was a amazing chicken and cheese sandwich with delicious vegetable soup...and a naughty hot chocolate. Everything was perfect, nothing could have been better. Highly recommend!More

I highly recommend this place, especially if you are gluten free, I couldn’t decide what to have as there were so many options and all homemade with is amazing. I went for a ham and cheese toastie with the soup and it was so delicious....I took away a fruit scone with the homemade jam which was like heaven I just wish I had taken a cheese one as well now. My fiancé had the sausage roll and soup which he said was so nice and he also took two cakes home as he just couldn’t decide. The staff are so nice and friendly and we will definitely return when we are next in Grasmere 😊More

Supper quick service, good, reasonably priced food. Don't allow dogs though but lovely outdoor tables at the back. We had jacket potatoes, soup, sandwiches and were all served piping hot within minutes. Very busy daily but you can usually get a table very quickly.

We had the most wonderful afternoon tea to celebrate my sister in laws birthday. She is Gluten Free. Everything was lovely and we had to take the cake home as there was no room for it. Rob the owner and his staff were amazing, even...though they were short staffed. We are going for breakfast in the morning before leaving for home. Thank you so much.More

What a fantastic place. Arrived in Grasmere whilst on a walk and wanted a nice lunch. Service and food was exceptional and it’s great to see a family run business being run so well, with their son who was helping with service today, being a...tremendous ambassador for their fine business. We will return soonMore

We chose to go here for lunch after a rainy morning walk. It was absolutely delicious. The menu catered for veggies, vegans and meat eaters in our group. The staff were also great in catering for a nut allergy in our party. All our food...was fab (I can vouch for the rarebit). Great coffee too. Proper family run business. Such a little gem! Totally recommend.More

Greens was a fantastic find, I am coeliac and the owner could not have been more accommodating whilst having a full understanding of my gluten free diet. I had so much choice from the menu, even down to cheese scones, various cakes and toasted sandwiches....My family (non coeliac) were catered for just as well and my children also enjoyed the menu and the variety of options. We enjoyed Greens so much that my mother and I squeezed in a second visit for coffees and cakes. Cannot wait to return when we're next in Grasmere and, in the meantime, highly recommend to any visitors to the Lakes.More

I live in Cheshire and first visited Greens 4 years ago. I enjoyed the food and ambience very much so I have tried to return many times when I am in the area as I was this week. I completely respect that Green's can and...do open whenever they want to (good for them!) but it is frustrating to drive all to Grasmere, pay a £4k parking fee and then find Green's is closed as I did yesterday 22.02.24 at 1120 hours. I tried to call first to find out if they were open but the phone no does not work, nor does the 'new phone' number. I just wish Green's would update the phone no so customers can check to see if they are open before wasting time travelling there and money on the carpark to only to find they are closed. This has happened to me three times hence I am writing this review - please sort it out Guys. My cycling friends from Cheshire also suffered the same experience as this.More

You would be better asking the cafe directly. A quick phone call would answer your question I’m sure.
