Cakes, coffee and a Cumbrian welcome

Our Tea Room (with free WiFi) is well known for its cake creations. You will always get a warm welcome and something sweet on offer in our main Tea Room or the School Room extension. Please note that the Tea Room normally closes at 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and 4pm on Sunday. During the Winter Months the Tea Room closes at 4pm every day. No bookings are required or being taken at the moment so just pop along and we will seat you as soon as there’s an empty table!

Tea, coffee and cake

Our regular customers enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea and our cakes, scones and tray bakes are all made in our own kitchens at The Pot Place. There are gluten-free options and Louise and her team are known for their display of special sweets and their afternoon tea menu.

Relaxing and accessible spaces

The popularity of the Tea room means that we’ve extended from the original Station Master’s House building into a light, bright and relaxing lounge area and, more recently, created the School Room. We can accommodate more visitors, there’s plenty of room for easy access and we’re happy to welcome well-behaved dogs into the School Room too.

The Pot Place for Sunday lunch is renowned – from Penrith to Carlisle and beyond – and you’ll usually need to book with a quick call or an email in advance to be sure of a table. Great local meat, seasonal vegetables and, of course, a selection of lovely desserts.
