Over the last couple of years we have been here many times. It is consistently excellent. We normally get the full Cumbrian breakfast and highly recommend it. Dog friendly during the day

It is always busy with cyclists, walkers with or without dogs, people who lunch and every kind of visitor. They do an efficient and streamlined service and the food and drink are excellent

Our second time here, staff are friendly and it’s a really comfortable cafe. Good range of hot drinks and cakes. We bought fudge to takeaway with us, it was delicious! Would definitely return.

Great for a pot of tea/coffee and a sandwich. Good generous filling in the sandwich with lovely coleslaw and crisps. Nice to sit outside and watch the world go by. Plenty of seating inside as well. Very nice friendly service. Much better than the hotel...More

Unfortunately yes. Dogs are allowed in here. I think there should be a separate part for dog lovers and non dog lovers to eat. I don't want to hear dogs yelping and begging for food when I have my breakfast. Won't be... More

Yes! Open every day until 5 pm as tearooms. Open also as a really good restaurant in the evenings from 6.30 pm except Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We love it in the evenings - food is excellent .
