Great place to stop for tea or ice cream after a long day of hiking. The service is good and the Thunder and Lightening ice cream is the best. They have restrooms and you and you sit and relax before the trek back to your...More

Grange Cafe - after a walk up Catbells, tea and scones at the end of the walk....nothing like it! Quiet and relaxed, overlooking stunning scenery, the Grange is well worth a visit, and the food is great.

Grange Cafe offered a very welcome "watering hole" halfway round a circular walk from Seatoller. Not needing a full meal, we enjoyed toasted teacakes and an excellent cup of tea. We can certainly recommend doing the walk this way round with beautiful views ahead as...More
