friendly and welcoming staff have had breakfast in the past which was very good just drinks on this occasion - you must try a 'Dufton Pike Delight' a great place to sit outside with a pot of tea after a long walk in the area

There were lots of cyclists here when we dropped in for brunch before walking round Dufton Pyke - I asked for the sausage roll, the waitress then checked whether I expected it to be sausage in pastry or a bun, I said I didn't mind which, she said they hadn't had the pastry ones in yet, but she could do...

What a lovely quaint place to visit. We had our dog with us and the lady who served us gave him scraps of bacon. We had lovely hot chocolate and coffee cake and scones. All were delicious!!

Ideally situated for those plodding along the Pennine Way or similar in the area, the Post Box Pantry offers traditional home cooked food in a comfortable setting. There is a daily specials board from which I ordered the cheeseburger served with salad. Typically, the menu offers toasties, jacket potatoes and such and there is a good variety of drinks on...

Called in here for breakfast at the end of a visit to The Lakes. Wish I'd discovered it sooner! Had a full English breakfast and it was excellent! Especially the bacon! It's always good to know that local, fresh produce is used and this was evident by the quality of the food. Would definitely call here again if I'm around... More
