Although I live in Brampton I had no idea the shop/store stocks were so extensive, OK not as extensive as CoOp but adequate and lovely staff with fresh veg and wine is good - what more could a man want, great chicken and steaks from...Colin Moore's and nice little shop in Halbankgate 😎More

Fab place, lovely staff, not a huge range but you will find something you like in the cafe. Shop and library too - such a gem, well done to all who keep it running.

We came as a family after a long walk only to find they stopped serving meals at 2pm which wan not mentioned on The Facebook page so it was a wasted journey for us. It would be helpful to say they stop serving at 2pm...for walkers who like a later lunchMore

The cakes looked lovely but we were there for lunch. They happily made up a salad for me taking account of my allergy to sweet peppers. We bought some food from the freeze cabinets to cook for supper; there was a good range of produce,...both local and not.More

Only ordered a take away snack and it was as if the staff had absolutely no interest in us. Took over five minutes to actually come to the counter to take order and then twenty minutes to get the order. Sorry but it wasn’t very...tasty either. Unless people are honest about feedback, there’s no point commenting.More

I visited the Hub today and have to say I was well impressed. Excellent choice of food and cakes topped with very friendly staff. There is also a shop with a large range of local produce. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

A lovely little local shop serving the community and run by a band if local volunteers. Has enough bits and pieces of you run out of things or if. You want to do a bigger shop. They also have art exhibitions and crafters wares to...buy. They also have a library link and weekly post office counter. Cafe part has relaxing couches and serves good homemade foods , from cakes, traybakes, scones, salads, soups and more. They offer special days too. Biker friendly for those on 2 wheels in need of a pit stop. Worth a look if you want a pleasant change from the town......a little hidden gem.More

On a road trip and happily found Hallbankgate Hub on my route. Popped in for a much needed coffee and snack. I ended up being seduced by their selection of home made cakes. Ended up eating in and getting some bits to take away for...later in my journey. The cake was possibly the best, and most generous portion, I had all trip, and for coffee and cake it was certainly the best value for money, indeed the cheapest, I had in almost two weeks touring. The cafe section is just part of a local community shop and, I think, social centre. I imagine the staff were volunteers, and from those I observed on my visit some were clearly more competent than others although all were very friendly and did their best to be helpful. I get the impression it is a lifeline to villagers, just as it was to this traveller. I've logged it into my SatNav just in case I'm ever in the area again.More

I've been to the hub a handful of times when visiting family and friends in Cumbria. It is a really lovely spot for lunch with a great selection of vegetarian and vegan options including daily specials and some incredible home-baked treats. It is run by...volunteers who are always friendly and welcoming. You get a great sense of this being a social hub as there are always people 'bumping into' one another and chatting! The selection of groceries on offer is excellent including some really good ales, local produce and vegan-friendly toiletries at startlingly good prices! There also seem to be regular events (there was a spinning group in last time I visited and a workshop on decorative leather work the time before)! Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, or even if you're just passing through!More

I'm not sure if it is classed as 'dog friendly' or not. I seem to recall a water bowl by the tables outside, but wouldn't like to say if dogs are allowed inside or not. I'm sure if you contact them direct they will advise... More
