Looking for something other than bread or pasties for your lunch on the hills, then I fully recommend Pumpkin. Opens at nine. Good selection of salads that catered for my diet.

This used to be one of our favourite cafes in Keswick but I assume it's been taken over. Service was friendly but incompetent. The burger was one of the worst things I've tasted in a long time. This used to be a really cool and...More
