  • Our little knitted friends are back!

    Last year, we embarked on some Easter fun - for a good cause!

    The very talented Mary Bower knitted these gorgeous little egg warmers and they have once again taken up residence at Green's, for the Easter period.

    Each knitted egg has a chocolate egg inside and we have suggested a donation of £2 - for the Will Clark Fund.

    It's a cause close to our hearts, so dig deep and catch 'em whilst you can. The little blighters won't stick around forever, you know!

     

    Green's is Grasmere's No. 1 cafe for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes........we look forward to welcoming you!
