The Courtyard Café  

Our Head Chef’s seasonal menus concentrate on locally sourced ingredients with delicacies such as Artisan Breads and Venison from our own estate.

With the option of indoor and outdoor seating, the Courtyard Café is the perfect setting to enjoy freshly brewed tea or coffee and delicious home bakes or something more staple from the ever changing lunchtime menu. For a special occasion why not try one of our sumptuous afternoon teas with a glass of fizz.

Every Saturday in July and August the courtyard also plays host to the Bess & Barrel, our pop-up-pub offering a tempting selection of sourdough pizzas and locally brewed craft ale.

At the Café you will find plenty of seating both inside and out. Even on a chilly day you will find warmth and shelter in the courtyard beneath our canopy and outdoors heaters.

Your Holker Hounds are also welcome to join you in both the Café and the Courtyard, we just ask that you keep them on a lead.
