Afternoon tea is also a firm favourite with our renowned HUGE scones freshly baked throughout the day.

We are open 7 days a week, 9am – 5pm with last orders for food at 4pm.(Summer Season only)

We are happy to cater for your group or party bookings by prior arrangement please contact us for details 015395 31594

We are pleased to serve our very own “Fairburn Ale” locally brewed by Ulverston Brewing Company. As a bottled beer this is a great accompaniment to your meal, or to take home in a souvenir gift pack along with a special design pint glass.

We are a family run business who enjoy and take pride in sourcing excellent home grown produce supplied by local people. Butcher Peter Hutchinson of Greenodd supplies all of our meats – Peter makes our now celebrated Fairburn Ale Cumberland sausages. Doug Sanders supplies our free range eggs, milk and cream, and ice-cream comes from ‘English Lakes Ice-Cream’ in Kendal.
