This café and farm shop are located right on the very edge of the lake district national park by the Plumgarth roundabout just north of Kendal. There is an on site car park and so if you want a spot of lunch without the difficulty of parking in Kendal this place offers an easy alternative. For those driving to the high fells this place makes for an easy quick food stop. Unfortunately there is not a good view of the fells from the site, it is such a shame to be so close but not see it. The café, being associated with the livestock farm means the available menu items tend to be rather meaty and so there is not such a good choice for the vegetarian. Despite these gripes I felt the good quality of the food and ample portions served by the sisters along with their personable touch gave the place a welcoming charm. It also appears very clean. There are a couple of sofas and a stove, while the rest of the seating is for two to four people at chairs and tables.
The café provided free WiFi and the service was very good. There was a good range of tea and coffee options. It did feel a little on the pricy side but I would happily eat here again if feeling indulgent. My tip is that this place has a great location for the traveller who wishes to stop off on the way to the lakes for food but does not want to waste time parking and walking in town.
