Our cafe is on a first come, first served basis. No need to book as we have plenty of seating inside, under our canopy with our heaters or out in the courtyard itself where you can enjoy the Cumbrian sunshine. Your Holker Hounds are more than welcome to join you in thee cafe and courtyard, we just ask you keep them on a lead. 

If you’re looking for something sweet then why not treat yourself to one of our famous Holker Afternoon Teas. We do require 24 hours notice so we are able to prepare everything for you.
