“TEA AND TOASTED TEA CAKE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

another brief visit to this beautiful tea room set by the river in Grange
only had a pot of tea and a toasted tea cake but it was excellent and the pot big enough for many cups - very welcome on a very hot day after walking. Friendly welcome from the young man serving. Beautiful garden overlooking the river and Grange bridge a picture postcard setting

“Beware of the Rottweiler !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We visited the Grange Bridge Cottage Tea Shop.
The setting is glorious.
The food, mediocre.
But, the woman who appears to be the owner, is the most offensive and rudest person you could ever wish to meet.
(of eastern european origin, i believe).
If you dare to enter, send in your bravest, to check she's on a leash !
Good luck,
Jeremy

“What a setting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

Food, drinks and service are not the reason to come here, although they are perfectly ok. It is the picknick area outside that makes this place so utterly enjoyable. Next to a lovely creek, surrounded bly flowers, with views of the surrounding country side and Grange Bridge. It gets to be you're sorry to leave after having finished your drinks/food.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We found this delightful place after a long walk at Derwent water. We enjoyed a great Fellmans lunch, tea and cake in lovely surroundings. It was a glorious sunny day and the place was a picture postcard. We will be back on our next trip to the lakes. Thank you.

“Poor value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Stopped here for lunch whilst walking with friends. Two of us ordered the "Baked Derwent ham salad" with pine nuts and new potatoes. The 'salad' consisted of a plateful of mixed salad leaves and chopped tomato. The 'ham' was pre packed and chopped into small pieces scattered over the 'salad'. At £7.95 we were not only disappointed at the poor content of the so called salad but felt we had been ripped off. The others had baked potatoes and also considered them to be poor value for money. We went round the corner to the other tea room and ordered deserts to fill us up - wished we'd followed our instincts and ate there in the first place as the meals looked a whole lot better.
