“Don't come to Bowness without visiting Byrson's.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Walked in this morning to stay my son's birthday celebrations with Breakfast out.

We made the perfect choice by walking into Bryson's where the only thing that was better than the excellent food was The service.

When my son asked if he could have marmite with his toast the reply was " I will just pop across to Tesco to get you some"

Breakfast arrived which can only be described as fantastic along with the marmite and a Cup Cake with a candle in it for my son's birthday plus 2 of the staff. We were then told that they were from Spain and Romania and they had never tried marmite until today when they were"forced" to try this British delicacy but didn't like it. The personal touch from all of the staff was really impressive.

Great experience that made the start of my son's birthday really special.

Will be back in during the week to sample some of the fantastic looking cakes and pastries.

“Amazing afternoon tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

We had our wedding cake from here, so took the opportunity to spend some time enjoying an afternoon tea whilst in the lakes for a week.
Yummy food. Between two adults we had egg and salmon sandwich and a ham sandwich. Then scones with cream and jam. And then a selection of cakes, washed down with a lovely cup of tea. We had our baby with us and he was welcomed as well.
See you next time.

“One Day Two Visits”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Enjoyed a day strolling around Bowness on a not pleasant wet and windy May weekend, however our first visit here was for a light lunch. The menu was good, the food was better and the staff, although clearly busy still found time to be friendly, attentive and prompt.
The bill was pretty good value too.
We searched in vain for another tea room to match it so we ventured back later in the day for the afternoon tea for two option, which was again good value. This time it was a lot quieter, but the staff attention was the same as before.
If only there was a Bryson's where we live, I'd make it a regular visit.
