The Grasmere Gingerbread Shop If you visit Grasmere, this is a must.
Chesters Lunchtime food is served at 12...when it's gone, it's gone so get there early.
Fulling Mill Try out sea brass Ginger and lime spicy sauce, prawn cocktail with salmon. Savor dishes and nice ambient. You may have to make a reservation before coming. It is crowned after 6.30pm

Casa Bella Thought you couldn't go wrong with ordering a pizza but Casa Bella seem to think it's ok to serve RAW pizza , how the hell can you set a virtually RAW pizza , management were very unhelpful - AVOID
The Old Keswickian Excellent fish and chips restaurant upstairs, with some decent bottled beers. Cumberland sausage nicely coarse and peppery. Pricey, but reasonable value.
Merienda Very friendly staff. For brunch tried the Baked eggs with chorizo, chickpeas, spinach, etc and it was really good.

The Pheasant Inn Lunch at the excellent Pheasant Inn (01768 776234; mains £12 to £20) . It’s a Lakeland classic, full of hunting prints, beams and hearths, and it serves superb country food.
The Chippy Bank Amazing food worth the wait
Farrer's A great place to buy fresh ground coffee.
Casa Romana Good Italian food! Good wine too!
Anna's Café, Creperie and Wine Bar Brill milkshakes! Will come back for crepes
The Plough Great place to stop to stretch you legs and warm up!
