Award Winning Breakfast


It’s all about breakfast at Compston House! Sue & Jerry offer you the choice of a full American breakfast (with Sue’s fresh, hot, homemade pancakes), a full English breakfast (of course), a choice of omelettes overstuffed with cheese, mushrooms, or tomatoes, or eggy bread (french toast) either sweet or savory! With sizzling home cured bacon, handmade Cumberland sausages from our local butcher, and creamy local free range eggs....you won’t go home hungry! You can have a full breakfast, any part or any combination.....just ask!

Vegetarian vegan, gluten free and lactose free breakfasts available.

The pancakes Sue makes are homemade, using her own American recipe. Sue can also make gluten free/wheat free or lactose free pancakes!

The blueberry muffins, which Sue makes every Sunday, are also homemade and baked fresh for you that morning.

At Compston House, we believe in combining top quality ingredients that capture the best flavours of Cumbria, with authentic American recipes. We are pleased to serve award winning local Cumberland Sausage and Home Cured Bacon from Clayton’s Butchers in Ambleside, local free range eggs from Bannerigg Farm in Windermere, fresh ground coffee and Lakeland Special tea from Farrer’s in Kendal, vine-ripened tomatoes, Kellogg’s cereals, and Heinz beans.
