tea and cake
The tea room is now open daily. On Monday to Wednesday we are open, from 10 till noon, when hot and cold drinks and a selection of homemade cakes are on offer. From Thursday to Saturday the tea room is open all day until 5pm, with a selection of snacks and savouries, homemade soup and sandwiches available – as well as plenty of cake of course! Alongside Olivia and Graham's own homemade cakes, we often have a selection from Tray Bakes of Penrith as well as gluten-free varieties from Fiends Fell Pantry.
We also now have ice creams from Abbott Lodge, sausage rolls and pork pies from Low Howgill Butchers, plus plenty of crisps, biscuits and other sweet snacks, should any of those take your fancy.
You can sit in the tea room itself, or we have a table in the shop, where you can sit and watch the world go by, and say hello to our other customers as they come and go.
We are dog friendly – in fact, we positively welcome dogs (as long as their owners are well behaved and kept on leads!), and there is always water and free treats available for thirsty and hungry pets. We are listed on Dog Friendly Lakes and Dotty 4 Paws
