Warm, comfortable and welcoming staff. Had a coffee before walking in the fells and then back for lunch. Good atmosphere and liked their music choices! Reasonable choices and good value in a fabulous setting. Will become a regular stopover when in the Lakes.

This is ideally situated for a coffee stop on a walk from Elterwater through the Langdale valley. The roaring fire was welcome on a freezing day, the staff were cheerful and the coffee was good and strong.

We stayed here in August, in a bbq day; this was really interesting, we can try Cumbrian sausage, and very good beers. Location is stunning, and the place really clean (also the toilet!) Recommended!
