Waterside Café

Cream tea and cakes by the water

You can sit and relax in our tranquil waterside gardens whilst savouring an afternoon tea with freshly baked ‘melt in the mouth’ scones and cakes. Or why not try our fresh smoked Blakewell salmon and trout which have become a real favourite with customers. Our licensed Waterside Café offers a selection of refreshments and light snacks.

Why not extend your day & catch your own fish in our family fish pond

Great fun for all the family! With supervision, this activity is really exciting for any age, even teenagers! It's also a fantastic way of teaching children about the natural world.
