    It is always a great experience when going to Copper Pot, we come up to the Lakes at least once a year for the last few years and always make a stop at Copper Pot, we’ve had multiple breakfasts and lunches and every experience has been amazing! The decor, the service, the food and drink is always spot on! Thank you - keep up the incredible work!

    We were staying near this cafe and thought we would try having breakfast. We were not disappointed, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food arrived in good time and was hot. We were both impressed with the size of the portions and the quality of the food. Well done. We were so impressed we returned before we returned home.

    Stopped at this cosy cafe for tea and crumpets. Friendly staff and delicious crumpets. If we hadn’t been staying elsewhere half board would have gone back for dinner.

    visited this cafe in february, there were 10 of us hoping to have some breakfast together so knew we could potentially be pushing our luck (we had tried to ring before hand however the phone line was down, not a problem on our end just wanted to ‘warn’ them). When we arrived there were 2 tables of 5 available and we were welcomed so warmly. Very busy cafe so we were very lucky that the 2 tables were available. Service, food, coffee & drinks all perfect! Really cannot fault the Cooper Pot! my boyfriend and i returned for lunch on our last day in the lakes and again all really wonderful. Will definitely be a new favourite for our annual trip. Thanks to all staff!

    Found this place by chance after many visits to Ambleside. Amazing staff, great coffee (flat whites top notch), food fantastic- had the waffle, bacon and maple breakfast with a flat white. Homemade cakes are the best. Only downside is they’re closed on Tuesday’s!

    Very very tasty food served here. Sat in front of the fire, dog flaked out, cosy warm. Pastrami and a hickory chicken ciabatta with fries, ever so tasty and fresh. Two teas, all for £23. Far better than some of the usual pub grub served close by.

    Went for Breakfast after looking at reviews on TA. only word to describe the food 'yum!' loving clean place. very friendly staff prices acceptable for where you are! We had the Granola pot which was definitely the best granola i've had with thick greek yoghurt, nuts, berry compote and honey - lovely big serving .. oh! and fresh strawberry. was absolutely gorgeous - came in a lovely presentation pot. partner had the ciabatta breakfast roll, bacon, sausage and Egg and he'd have eaten it all over again. Great place. we managed to get a parking space just outside and because the service was quick our 1 hr time slot free of charge was perfect. thanks to the Copper Pot Cafe for a beautiful breakfast :) xx

    The service and food was great, we had a great experience. I ordered the Hot beef ciabatta and my partner had a cod burger, would recommend both dishes.

    Cosy interior, lots of original cake choices and best of all when i asked for a hot chocolate I opted for one of the unusual options rather than the normal and it was delicious.

    Friendly Family run cafe with super home cooked meals. The big breakfast is fab. The selection of burgers for lunch looked great too.

    Called in for lunch. Delicious food in a nice cosy little cafe - loved it and will definitely return. We ate chilli chips and a ham and cheese toasted sandwich - both fantastic. Staff were very nice and the decor is cool. Stands out from the crowd!

    I came here with my husband after we read the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. I ordered a blueberry scone with cream and jam. This was very nice and fresh. This is what the stars are for. My husband had the full cooked English breakfast. This was average at best. He doesn’t eat eggs or mushrooms so asked if it would be possible to swap for something else like toast etc. We were told no and that we would have to pay extra despite not having these 2 items. I thought that for a breakfast costing just short of £9 they could have offered some toast or something which would have cost them pennies. Many other places do offer a swap. My husband asked for his black pudding to be well done. When the breakfast came he said it was underdone and cold. The tomatoes were also undercooked and cold too. The bacon was far too salty and cold. The toast was cold and the butter was rock hard. The breakfast came super fast and we wondered if maybe it had all been precooked and left to sit there. The actual restaurant itself was lovely inside with a cosy fire too. Overall, our experience today was very underwhelming and with all the other choices around, we won’t rush back any time soon.

    We popped into the Copper Pot for a hot drink on a very chilly December day when we were Christmas shopping. We'd not long had lunch so, although the cakes and other delights looked scrumptious we were too full to try anything. We did however have one of their delicious hot chocolates - made from real cocoa (we opted for the 70%) and it was absolutely heavenly. We will definitely be back when we are next in Ambleside.

    We were here almost 2 years ago around Easter and popped in for lunch. It was fantastic and clearly memorable given that we chose to pop in again during our few hours in Ambleside this December. The coffee is great, food is fresh and delicious. I had the chilli (tasty & spicy) and he had the fish finger ciabatta -equally delish I’m told. The Berry Bellini looked awesome but I managed to restrain myself. Next time...:) Lovely atmosphere and very welcoming place - I can’t recommend it enough!

    The breakfasts that we had this morning have to be up there with the best I’ve ever eaten, the porridge with all the trimmings was so tasty, and whoooaaa the breakfast ciabatta was unreal, so much flavour and followed by a cracking cappuccino.

    Popped in for a hot drink on a cold, wet morning and we were all delighted with our hot chocs! Best one I can remember in a very long while... thank you 😊

    We visited on a rainy afternoon for lunch. The food was delightful and very friendly. Laid back and nice hot fire. Definitely return if we were in the area.

    We discovered the Copper Pot around 18months ago on a visit to Ambleside, and now eat there every time we visit out daughter who is studying at the University. The staff are friendly, the service efficient and the food is great. Homemade soups, meals and salads and cakes to die for - all with a "healthy" feel and some little twist of ingredient. One complaint - can get busy, so can't always get a table!
