Granny Dowbekin’s Tea Room and Garden, Pooley Bridge,, Ullswater,, CA10 2NP – Visit Now

In 1859 Ullswater Steamers began transporting minerals, mail and passengers up and down the lake and 1846 Penrith railway station opened bringing visitors from all over the country. The first cream teas were served in the Granny Dowbekin’s Tearoom and Garden by the then Butler and Housekeeper of the Rampsbeck Hotel. It offers delicious breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas and its new garden room overlooks the River Eamont can also be booked for parties of up to 20.

You are afforded a very warm welcome and the service and the provision of locally sourced ingredients and good food are served with Cumbrian style and generosity. Home baked scones, cakes, and pies are served up fresh every day and provide welcome fuel for friends and family from far and wide.

Dogs are welcome and the café and gardens are blessed with the best vantage points to enjoy the views of the River Eamont and magnificent Ullswater.
