Very friendly and helpful staff. The dog can't go in with you but there is somewhere to tie them up just outside where you can keep an eye on them. Lunch was yummy - especially the oatcake which was a new one on me!

Good quality but quite expensive. Can get very busy in summer, but quite a lot of seating outside. Just get a coffee perhaps.

Usual excellent view, teas and coffees and simple food. Plenty of seats outside to take in the views across to Thorp Cloud on a sunny day but once again walkers with dogs excluded from the tea rooms which is a pity in an area where so many of the visitors are dog owners. Dog bowls provided and also places to... More

We stopped by for a break in our journey. We had bacon and sausage baps which were very good and served by charming staff. Delightful views around the park.

Your usual choice of hot and cold food. Sandwiches ok, flan, stews, soup and jackets. You ll find a decent fill here with all the cakes. Not the biggest national trust tea room, but plenty of tables outside, weather permitting.

We stopped off at this tearoom after visiting Dovedale and Milldale. It was a beautiful day and the views were stunning. We both chilled out with our lovely cup of tea and homemade scone. It was rather busy in the tearoom so had to wait in a queue but it was worth the wait.
