We’d been travelling and needed a late lunch. Most other places were closing at about 3pm but this stayed open until 4:30pm. Enjoyed lovely food and polite and friendly service in clean surroundings. Highly recommended. Honest home made food tasted delicious.

Recently visited Brampton whilst away for the weekend. The service was exceptional, Nicola was so friendly and attentive and nothing was too much. The food was amazing and very good value. I had the hummingbird cake which was one of the best cakes I’ve ever...had, would 100% recommend. Definitely will visit again when in the area.More

Nothing good about this place. £1.75 for cup of coffee £2.50 for a mug( basically more hot water) beef stew and soggy herb dumpling simply heated up in a microwave god knows how long it has been standing cold. Cumberland sausage roll and beens £3.50...tiny little sausage roll about 10cm long which again was pinged in a microwave and a half cup of beans. Sausage pastry was as dry as they come and tasteless. Amidst this COVID pandemic you don’t expect salt and pepper as a free for all on the table along with a variety of sauces God knows who had touched them prior to us arriving. Cutlery delivered to table in an old used treacle tin filthy around the rim. Only allowing cash payments strangely when everywhere else prefers contactless and to top everything off the toilet lights didn’t work in the gents and the seat was coming off in the ladies. Not a pleasant experience won’t be going back and would advice others against visitingMore

We went here after walking out of the Howard Arms where the service was terrible. In this cafe the service was friendly and efficient. We had a huge all day full breakfast with toast and tea for £4 each. The atmosphere was relaxed and chatty...and we will definitely go there again and recommend it to our friends.More

The owners of Capon Tree cafe are incredibly lovely. They are cheerful, professional, helpful and keen for you to enjoy your visit. The food is homemade and very delicious but all at very good prices. We enjoyed their amazing Afternoon Tea - everything was fabulous....A very special place run be very special people.More

The Capon Tree is a nice, simple, traditional cafe with half a dozen tables on the ground floor and a few more upstairs. The menu is typical of the genre with prices that are refreshingly realistic, i.e. they are very reasonable indeed. And how nice...to be able to have your chosen sandwich toasted at no extra cost. We just came in for hot drinks, but couldn’t resist the temptation of a cherry and coconut scone - and that really was a fine decision as it was superb. Run by Very nice people, this is a very decent cafe.More

We were wandering around the town wondering where to eat, there is a lot of choice, but we plumped for Capon Tree Cage as we spotted what looks like locals in, they know the good places usually. Anyway we were very glad we did. The...food was fantastic and fresh; we had cream teas... home made scones were delicious!More

Called in on way home from Carlisle and was tempted by the light afternoon tea. Freshly made sandwiches and scones with large pot of tea and coffee. The staff were lovely chatty and friendly and the decor is modern shabby chic. Good value for money.
