The Potting Shed Cafe has a varied menu. But this place has various 2 x soups on the menu daily and they are changed on a daily basis. the soups come with a wedge of home made bread and they also make home made scones, with jam and clotted cream. As well as other home made cakes - fish and chips etc.

Staff are a mixture of English and Polish, we have received excellent customer service especially from a Polish lady (originally from near to Krakow). We have had dealings with her over the years. Very polite and gives excellent customer service.

Don't even bother ordering. Over priced manure, escape while you can. Go for a cheaky wrap of the day from McDonald's 10 times better

We all ordered sandwiches which sadly were served on quite dry, stale bread. It was such a let down as the terrace area we were sat in was lovely and great in the warm sun. It is dog friendly both inside and out, so would have most likely come back if the food was good.
I would still recommend you come here as the shop was delightful (also dog friendly), but would only stay for a drink and would go eat somewhere else.

Great cafe for a good solid lunch. Was a little busy so had to wait in line a few minutes but not to long. Orders were taken efficiently although humorlessly but it was busy. Food was well prepared and tasted fine. Scones and cream were excellent as was the cod. Prices are moderate and the toilets clean. Good place for lunch.

This place has plenty of outside seating, friendly staff and the biggest scones ever. The first place we always go to wgen cycling thru Grasmere. And the added bonus of a lovely garden centre and gift shop on site.
