Lakeside cafe shuts after 85 years

A cafe which has been serving teas and coffees beside Derwent Water in Cumbria for 85 years is to close.

The same family has run the Lakeside Tea Gardens in Keswick for 25 of those years but their lease has not been renewed.

This is because the landlord, the next door Theatre by the Lake, wants to open a new restaurant on the site to secure its financial future, as Alison Freeman reports.
