Called here for take away sandwiches and scones. Counter service was very slow even thought the shop / cafe were not busy. My cheese and tomato sandwich lacked substance - nearly all bread and the fruit scones were dry. Will not be returning.

Come back here every year and never disappointed, the scones are the best in the Lakes and we have tried quite a few over many visits to the area. Reasonable prices and good service
