We called in at Brambles after a walk up Orrest Head. We received a really warm welcome and made to feel really at home. Our lunches of a BLT and a cheese and tomato roasting were very tasty and came with a bag of Tyrrell's crisps, which was a nice touch. We were also offered top ups of tea and... More

Brambles is very warm and welcoming - we enjoyed a nice hot cuppa and a delicious, moist slice of Victoria sandwich. Really nice traditional, unpretentious cafe with lots of choice.

New Year's Day in Windermere, having been shunned from a cafe because we had a dog with us, we walked down the road and were tentatively looking in the window when we were wecolmed by a big smile and waved in by the lady inside. "Of course you can bring the dog in, sit down and make youselves comfy. We... More

Our familt of six went in for a coffee and cake, could not have been greeted in a more welcoming way. Muddy boots no problem! All the cake was home made and delicious. The hot chocolate was unbelievable, an absolute delight. Worth a pop in, even accepts pups!

Perfectly lovely small tea room in the middle of Windermere. Breakfast and coffee were both great, along with attentive service. Nice first day traditional English breakfast (Brambles breakfast). Extremely reasonably priced. Only concern is a relatively limited breakfast menu.

My husband and I enjoyed a pot of Lakeland tea and scones here on a cold afternoon. The couple that owns the cafe are very friendly. All of the baked items are baked here. The scones were delicious! Would definitely come again if in Windermere!

Firstly, excellent attention to customer service, with a warm welcome from the hostess which remained consistent for ALL customers. Additionally, the staff team were attentive and they really complimented each other, working efficiently to meet customer requests. Now the food....all freshly prepared and in the case of the cakes, home baked! Tasty, plentiful and good value. Clean and comfortable, unpretentious... More

We dined here for lunch today. The great bonus is they allow dogs. The tea room was rather busy and full. A good sign. Our food was lovely. The cakes were great. Drinks fab. Staff friendly, welcoming and helpful. 5* easy.

We visited Brambles late on Saturday afternoon. We wanted a snack as we'd not had lunch. We were welcomed by a lovely lady who told us she was still able to offer us everything on the menu. I ordered a jacket potato with cheese and beans. I was asked which way round I wanted the filling, cheese first or beans... More
