“great homemade soup and cakes”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Lovely old cafe that used to be the curators accommodation for Furness Abbey, but now independently owned by a local woman. Tiny inside but great outdoor seating available in good weather. Lovely food and freindly staff.

“Awful”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 via mobile

It is extremely cold to sit inside with no effort to heat it up. The atmosphere is dull. The food was cold and not very nice and also expensive for what it was. Could be a very nice cosy place but no effort is made. won't go back

jackie b, Owner at Abbey Mill Coffee Shop, responded to this review, 13 February 2014
Thank you for your email and feedback. Unfortunately, due to landlord rules we cannot develop the property and it is difficult to heat this time of year even with two fires. We are very sorry you were disappointed and so are we, as we have never had a review like this. If you had told us at the time we would of done our best to rectify the situation and if you had visited in the summer months you would have found the café completely different. Again, thanks for the feedback, regards, Abbey mill.

Straightforward cafe food - well cooked and at good prices. Lovely location next to the abbey. Friendly and attentive staff. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

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!

“Good cakes and lovely setting”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

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
