There is aren’t many places as scenic as the Lake District, and the whole region attracts thousands – if not millions – of visitors a year. Cockermouth lies just on the edge of the Lakes, and provides a superb location from which to tour the region, making it extremely popular with walkers, hikers and intrepid explorers. Merienda on Station Street in the heart of Cockermouth town centre offers both a proper British breakfast to gourd you for your trips around the hills, a spot of lunch to help you along the way, or an evening meal to replenish when the walking day is done. Their menu is filled with fresh local ingredients, as well as freshly ground coffee that is famed around the Cockermouth region. Reserve yourself a table now, as they can get busy on occasion.
Wasn't sure about an evening meal at Merienda as I had a bad service experience in the past so don't use it during the day. However, I can say really glad my friend wanted to try it as we had a lovely evening with excellent food. The service was excellent and the desserts were the best I have had in a long while. Will definitely be going again. Only sell wine and beer which was fine for us, but would be nice to have had a drink before our meal.
Booked Merienda for a small group of us for our Christmas night out for work. Fantastic food, very accommodating and great service - I will definitely be back! :)
