If you’re looking for a true taste of The Lakes … this is the place.

Join us in our Farm Cafe at Ings between Windermere and Staveley Village.  Enjoy a relaxed drink and meal with amazing views of the fields towards Windermere through the large picture window.  If the weather’s nice, sit outside and enjoy watching farm life go by. 

Our menu is always being developed, and we’re passionate about using as much of our own farm-reared high quality Lakeland produce as possible.  This not only provides an excellent taste to our menu, but also helps us reduce our food-miles considerably, and our impact on the environment … which are all very important to us.

We’re fully licensed, so you can enjoy a drink with your meal, or relax outside and take in the Lake District views.

We’re proud to serve Penningtons Tea & Coffee in our Farm Cafe.  Penningtons are an independent family run company based in Kendal.  At their Roastery, they hand roast specially selected, ethically sourced coffee beans from around the world, to craft the finest coffees.

They don’t forget the tea drinkers … with a range of loose leaf teas and teabags too.

We love supporting local businesses.
