They offer really good home cooked food at a reasonable price in a lovely setting close to Furness Abbey. Excellent coffee and the cakes are really good as well!

This little cafe is in a great location opposite Furness Abbey and is a perfect stop off whilst out for a walk. We called in for coffee whilst walking last week. The coffee was good but the coffee cake was amazing, and the other cakes looked pretty fab too. The rest of the menu was a bit cafe like ie. lots of things with chips but there was a specials board too

A lovely small café overlooking Furness Abbey. Very pleasant staff who seemed to really want to be there which is often not the case. Nice selection of food and drink made better with a 50% Tastecard discount.

We have been using this café for a long time and on the whole it's nice. The snacks, foods and drinks are all value for money. The location is excellent, next to the ruins of Furness Abbey, with walks through fields and woods. What lets the place down is the exterior and garden. If the owners paid a little more attention to the exterior I am sure it would attract a lot more visitors. For example, today, we dropped in for a coffee and a bite to eat whilst out walking the dogs. The café had only just opened and the table we sat at was littered with used straws, cigarette butts, drinks cans and plenty of other litter. The grass was unkempt, the flower pots had seen better days, the industrial bin was on display, so all in all a nice spot but spoiled with lack of attention. Shame really as that is the only thing that lets it down.

Thank you very much for your feedback. As you may understand it is a large garden and difficult to keep on top of. Unfortunately the vandalism we have had this year through teenagers hanging around after closing time has been a little disheartening and we lost several benches and flower pots. We apologise you had to catch us on a bad morning after we hadn't cleaned up unwanted mess but we are glad you like our café. Please chat to us about any concerns in the future and we will do our best to rectify them.
