Our favourite tearoom ever! Cakes are the best we've ever had, every time we visit they are consistently excellent. The staff are lovely and friendly. A credit to the village of Cartmel.

Drinks were very good, cafeteria offered value and choice of hot or cold milk was a nice touch. Service was pleasant and efficient. The decor felt a bit dated, but it could be that a period theme is intended.

Lots more on offer in this tiny Tea Shop. A bit squashed inside but cheery service and enjoyable STP. Variety of soup and sandwishes, cooked breakfast and jacket potatoes as well as deserts and cakes. Reasonably priced and warm on a wet day outside!
