Tea Room

Blackwell’s charming Tea Room serves delicious seasonal light lunches, cakes and tempting treats using the very best local ingredients. You can add a little fizz to your lunch with our range of beers, prosecco and wines, or just sit and soak up the atmosphere over a pot of Lakeland tea.

With an elegant outdoor terrace, it’s a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the superb views of the lake.
