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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Having seen a post from a walker saying how good this place is we popped in to see for ourselves. Absolutely fabulous food, lovely coffee and really friendly staff. Really really good place to eat

Hi, I'm sorry that we were full on each visit... we hate turning people away and wish we had a busier building. To avoid disapointment in the future please book via lakeroadbrunch.co.uk

Lovely engaging staff and food was delicious. I went for the tandoori cod on sourdough flatbread - came with a soothing coconut chutney and a lip-smacking Kashmiri tomato chutney. My mouth tingled for ages afterwards in the the best way 👌😋. Wife had one of...their fluffy buttermilk pancake, yog and fruit combos - she was impressed too! Well worth a visitMore

Lovely food, great service. Strong smooth coffee. Travelled from Yorkshire, missed breakfast and fancied something different. So glad we found this place. The beef hash really hit the spot. Highly recommended.

Went this morning for breakfast. Can't recommend this place enough. Staff are always friendly and polite. Had the classic pancake stack as the pancakes are the best around in my opinion. It's no wonder they are always busy but food and drink are worth the...wait.More

Not disappointed after reading some promising reviews. Nice and quiet out of season so straight to a table, and proceeded to have the most delightful breakfast.

Day out to beautiful Keswick, wanted a coffee before heading home and at 3.50pm (they shut at 4pm) asked if it was too late to grab a coffee, and typical of the friendly Cumbrian people we were welcomed in no problem. We sat down and...had lovely freshly prepared lattes, everywhere was lovely and clean with a bright & funky interior…and it’s doggy friendly 🐶More

We always have exceptional food and service at LRB. Today started off just the same. Until the rudest server told us we have 15 minutes left until we have to vacate the table, her tone was abrasive and rude and completely unnecessary. We advised her...we had actually ordered more food and were waiting on that, her response was that we should’ve been told before we ordered. I’m not really sure what caused her to be so rude. It really left a sour taste in our mouths, especially as we were celebrating a birthday with family up from Kent. We had pre-ordered our food and it didn’t come out as soon as we came out (which is in no way an issue, until we then get attitude about ordering more food and drinks and exceeding our time limit!) I would 100% understand if the place was rammed and they had people waiting, There were at least 2-3 tables free upstairs and at least another 10 seats downstairs free, also we had ordered more food and drink, so it’s not like we were sitting there sipping tap water and not spending money. When the server then did bring our sweet dish out, we weren’t provided with any cutlery to eat it with and had to ask for that… again, normally we wouldn’t care less about that, but the fact she’s taken that attitude and tone with us, gets your back up and then she causes a delay in us being able to eat our food and leave. I think it will be a while until I’ll want to step foot back in here now, as I feel the treatment received today was completely unjust, we were never rude or had any attitude for her to behave the way she did.More
