Great place for coffee after a walk around the lake, or for lunch. Good menu, reasonably priced. Modern and clean. Outdoor seating also available along with a children's play area.

Headed to Dearnford for the afternoon with pupz in tow, planning to work up an appetite ready for afternoon tea in the cafe. The walks around the Lakes are around a mile long & fairly easy under foot evem after crappy weather. The cafe overlools the lake so will be fab on a spring day. Little grim today but made... More

Our family thankfully weren't in a rush but it took about half an hour for our three breakfasts to come and when they got here they were good but could be better also it took about five minutes of queuing with only two people in front of us to finally put an order. But generally good but could be better.

A recent visit on a Sunday meant missing the 11.30am cut off time for a Sunday breakfast by 10 minutes! C'mon Dearnford owners! At least consider serving all day breakfasts on a Sunday when people slow down a little for the weekend, rise a little later than normal. Eating a sandwich at 11.30am just didn't cut it I'm afraid.

Oh dear, looking forward to stopping off here on our way home, we are local. We waited 40 minutes for a luke warm bowl of soup and a stale tasting roll. The place was busy but......Then found we were sitting next to a poodle with long drool out of its mouth. Next customer sat down beside us with a very... More

My Partner and I went for lunch here during my lunchbreak at work. Was very pleased to see that it was busy when we arrived (many people also like it as we do!) The milkshakes are great, the salted caramel is my favourite. I had the coronation chicken wrap and my partner had the burger. the coleslaw is so tasty!... More

Stopped off for a quick bite to eat with some friends. Had veggie curry and brown rice - delicious. Had a quick look at the lake but it was closing so did not get chance to walk around. Be careful that he grounds close just after they close the cafe - 4pm on a Sunday
