Chesters by the River

Chesters by the River is a gorgeous vegetarian café and shop by the beautiful River Brathay, on the way to Coniston & Langdale.  Its a bright, modern cafe with a delicious all home-made menu  and there’s a takeaway menu, or an outside area where you can sit by the wood-burner.

A great place to stop and rest after a wander in the Langdales, Coniston or up to Elterwater.  Its very doggy friendly and has spectacular home made food.  See if you can work out the slogan ‘Bad Dog No Biscuit’.. Recommendations talk about the amazing flat breads, sausage rolls, soups and salads, lemon meringue pie, flapjacks and tiffin.

There’s also a fabulous shop with really different items for home; books, children’s section and personal gift ideas.

Open all year round 9-5pm in the winter 9-4pm every day except Christmas and Boxing day.

Hints & Tips: Enjoy a walk through the woods out toward Elterwater and along the river, then return back for more food and drink!

Why we like it:  You forget its vegetarian, the choices are so tasty and the cakes are incredible. There’s also a large covered area at the back where you can sit with your muddy dog/ boots.
