I had a cheese and sun dried tomato scone and a latte. Both were very good and reasonably priced. I then enjoyed a walk around the lake. Nice clean, cosy place.

We visited the Alderford Lake Cafe (note the change of name) during a storytelling festival on the site. The staff were courteous and efficient, the tea flavoursome and the Welsh Rarebit (which, although advertised with bacon, is available without) is simply delicious.

I don't know. We visited the place when we were on holiday, and so are not local. It's not a small café, and I would expect you could book.
