Myself and friends visited the cafe after a cycle ride around the lake. They were able to serve a refreshing milkshake but it was rather expensive - everything else ok!

Back in Coniston on holiday, we decided to start our stay with breakfast overlooking Coniston Water at the Bluebird. Brilliant bacon baps, Cumberland sausage baps and toast, all freshly prepared and delivered to the table. Fairly priced as well.

The Bluebird Cafe is much more than a cafe. The setting by the Gondola ferry point is quite busy but still beautiful and there is so much to watch while you have lunch right next to the lake. The service here is quick and efficient and the food really excellent. It came a bit too quickly in some ways as the cajun chicken was a bit cold but still tasted fine . Feta cheese salad was generous and well presented. On a sunny day its one of the gems of the lake district.

Very very expensive for rather inferior food. It was actually more expensive than the motorway service station !!! And the coffee and cake were better tasting.
Must Try Harder
