After a long walk round Ferry Meadows we been calling in at Lakeside for breakfast on a Saturday morning for a number of years. To be told this morning that poached eggs are no longer on the menu was very disappointing. They did cook me...some but they were not to the normal standard. We will be going elsewhere for breakfast from now on.More

My husband and I called into Lakeside Kitchen after a walk around Ferry Meadows this morning. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. We only had tea and cake but were spoilt for choice! We opted for the coffee and walnut cake, which was...absolutely delicious, and very generous portion size. We will definitely return as I want try the scones which looked a meal in itself (huge). I would highly recommend and look forward to a return visit.More

We are regular visitors and regularly stop for refreshment mid walk and have done so for many years. My wife has noticed the quality of the hot chocolate has gone down hill recently, which is disappointing as the coffee and cakes are of great quality....Is the hot chocolate made with milk as it was quite watery.More

I spent around 35 minutes in a queue which was only about 8 or so people in front. Mind blowingly slow. One off the girls just appeared to be hovering around. Loads in the kitchen talking and only really two girls trying to serve while...an older lady just kept rushing around looking stressed. You need to sort yourselves out as the products are pretty good, just the organisation seems chaoticMore

This place is not what it used to be sadly. Inexperienced staff, high prices and poor organisation Hot chocolate at £3.10 for a watery mixture was returned and they didn’t seem bothered even the cappuccino was one of the worst ever tasted Poor queuing system,...long queues and insufficient staff Very disappointed as I’m a local and would visit more often but not unless it improvesMore

I enjoy coming here for breakfast before or after a walk around the park. Weather permitting, outdoor seating is great with lovely views over the lake. The food is pretty good, especially the cakes, thoguh the coffee could be better at least it's better than...the big coffee chains. My only quible is that 3 times I've gotten spinach with an omlette, and the spinach was gritty - it hadn't been rinsed off enough. The first 2 times were quite a while ago so I was hoping they were a distant issue, but no - please ensure the kitchen staff know the spinach isn't 'washed and ready to eat'! I'll keep coming back for other food though.More

We visited the park and cafe for some Brunch with our 2 small dogs. Doggy friendly with bowls of water aplenty. We both ordered Club Sandwich and Fruit Scones which were very tasty and exactly what we expected. We had fun watching the paddleboarders, kayakers...and sailing boats milling around on the lake and it looked like they had just as much fun! There was seating both inside and out and because we had such lovely weather (and the dogs) we sat outside - pleasant surroundings, tables clean and plenty of space between them for social distancingMore

Had brunch here, real nice food and nice cakes for later in the day. Can’t fault customer service as originally had cakes to eat in then had to request boxes to take out which were no problem
