Four of us can recommend the tearoom based on our first visit after mountain biking for over 6 hours across the fells on the hottest day of the year so far. Good food, helpful staff and a lovely setting.

Travelling through the picturesque village of Askham on a sunny day we saw a sign for the kitchen cafe and decided to stop off. Glad we did. The staff were very pleasant and the coffee and cakes excellent within a pleasant environment.

Really nice gardens and cafe. Food excellent. We sat down late for lunch in a Sunday but still good choice of well cooked food. Well priced but not cheap. Friendly staff. Use old stables which are very dark but quaint

Yes, also if you wanted to stay at Askham hall they are allowed in the rooms, but you have to ask first. Two guests were visiting, staying over for 2 nights, with their two dogs as we visited.
