I spent an afternoon in Bowness-on-Windermere in the lake district with my family after our few days Whinfell forest before we well parted ways. We decided to get lunch and after a false start (I saw the kitchen it wasn’t very nice) where my grumpy father dragged us in to the first place he saw we left and soon came across St Martin’s tea room.
It was a sunny warm day and the town was very busy but we were lucky enough to get a table upstairs. This was a lovely little cafe with a basic menu. It was exactly what we were after for a light lunch. They even provided a free juice to my toddler nephew. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. My family all had sandwiches which were beautifully presented and came with
salad and a delicious home made purple cabbage slaw. I ordered a baked potato with chilli and added cheese. This was accompanied by a salad but sadly no slaw. So I stole my brother-in-laws. The chilli was very tasty and the baked potato cooked exactly how I like it. Not too floury and a lovely brown skin. I also had come tea (earl grey) which was served in lovely old china, including a china tea pot. Sadly I forgot to jot down the prices, but it was reasonable for sarnies and drinks for lunch. I’m only sorry that after a week away rammed with gluttony I decided not to have a cake.
Verdict- would recommend
