Excellent find on the edge of Cockermouth. We ate there twice during our stay, once for breakfast and once for afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was amazing value at £10. Everything is very fresh and the service is really friendly

A great little find - the garden centre is very bizarre but the little cafe is fantastic. Tempting selection of lunches (we had a toasted sandwich) and lovely cakes. The service was prompt and very friendly and the surroundings are wonderful

I nearly always stop at this little haven to catch a bite and a drink. The food is simple, very well done, sensible portions and good value. I will keep coming.
