First Review by Braidy

Surprising refuge in sheep country - Edit

Caldbeck is a pretty village at the north end of the National Park and this café is in an interesting complex of ancient buildings; there are several shops offering artisan goods, though of course quite a lot are made of local sheep's wool. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable and can rattle off the vegan options immediately (though only the cakes are marked). Hiking boots are allowed inside but they will ask you to remove very muddy ones just inside the door. Toilets are outside (with the washing machine!). I think it may be wheelchair accessible, though the slate path leading up from the road is quite uneven. I enjoyed the apricot slice and date slice and liked the view of the beck outside the window. There's a coal-burning stove here so it's nice and cosy in winter.

Pros: Nice staff, attractive setting, tasty date slice

Cons: Not too many vegan options yet, can get crowded on bank holidays etc
