We've walked past this tearoom a dozen times and never been in until last weekend when we went for a late lunch. The food is very good and there's a lovely menu. They're licenced as well. Liked the laid-back feel about the place and the staff were friendly too. It's dog friendly - there's even a basket of dog towels... More

Having tried practically all the lunch/tearooms/coffee places in Keswick we decided to try this little place outside of the town centre. It was worth the trip. Lovely place with wooden floors and furniture, cosy lighting, very very clean, nice friendly atmosphere, dog friendly (they get a dog biscuit or two!). The food is different and fresh. Interesting, not run of... More

We popped in for a quick snack lunch, had the baked potato which was served really well with delicious and salad on the side. Good ambiance, staff were very helpful. Really enjoyed it.

This is a lovely place - a bit like a ski lodge. Had afternoon tea. Nice tuna sandwich / scone / Victoria Sponge. A lovely find after a walk around Derwentwater. Very dog friendly even providing towels at the door to wipe your dog on arrival!

The evening meals were always exellent as is all food now provided daily. Some may say a little expensive but in our view good value for what you receive including the... More

I think this is new or recently redone. However it is done it is well worth a visit. Very nice tearoom. Nice selection and friendly staff. Easy to park directly outside. Done to cater for the normal Lake District family walkers. Dog friendly. All round recommend.

Came across this fantastic tea room after driving around Derwent Water and were so glad we did. Excellent range of good value sandwiches and many other lunch options in a spotlessly clean café.
