Never met a manager as rude in my life. She couldn't deal with having a couple of orders to take. When we discussed the poor service with other local businesses they weren't shocked as they've heard it plenty of times before. Disappointing

Thank you for your reveiw. We can only imagine you were with the lady that commented last week and reveiwed us with one star. I can't imagine which 'local' businesses you discussed our service with, but can categorically say it couldn't have been businesses in Cartmel. However, we're sorry you were disappointed with our service. More

Thank you for your review. We did expect it, given we believe your response to the situation was competely unnecessary. That said having read your reviews of other places you've visited I can't imagine there are many places that would meet your 'standards'. We actually pride ourselves on our professionalism and can only apologise AGAIN for not meeting you standards... More

Called in here before our lunch at L'Enclume as we had sometime to wait. Just had cold drinks and a cake but the staff were friendly and the place clean and tidy. Well worthy of a visit if you've time to spare.

Visited the village of Cartmel today; received a nice warm welcome when we called in for lunch. The sandwiches were a huge hit. The selection of cakes were amazing. The coffee walnut cake was outstanding.

A warm welcome, delicious coffee and utterly wicked cakes! After visiting the Priory, this is a real treat. What's not to like?
