Blackwell's Tea Room is the perfect place to dine with wine. Visit this little gem and enjoy light lunches, hot meals, or home baked treats.
Eat inside or out on our wonderul terraces. If you go al fresco don't be suprised to be joined by a Blackwell robin.
These cheeky and bold birds sing as you relax with fabulous food and take-in fabulous views over Winderemere.
Spring is in the air - why not sit back and enjoy a glass of Terra Serena Prosecco as the world goes by?
While eating outside, stretch your legs in our beautiful garden where you can play croquet.
You can even be joined outside by your four-legged family members.
Blackwell’s Tea Room is situated in the old kitchen and scullery. The original fire places can still be seen in this bright and welcoming space.
Opening Times: Open every day 10:00am to 5:00pm (summer) and 10:00am to 4:00pm (winter). Hot meals are served noon until 3pm.
Enjoy the best Lakeland produce:
All of our bread, cakes and sweet treats are baked fresh each morning by our own chefs, who wake with the birds to prepare cakes, brownies, florentines and fruit scones.
We work with local producers and suppliers to ensure only the best Lakeland produce is used in our recipes. Seasonal menus reflect the finest foods from the Cumbrian culinary calendar. Our spring menu (attached below) offers light lunches from duck and pear salad and stew of the day.
Why not pair Stew of the Day with a bottle of Windermere Pale Ale for £9? Or tuck into an open sandwch of Melted Brie with Hot Sautéed Mushrooms or Grilled Tomato? (£6.50).
