An excellent café, in an old 18th century watermill, which was stone-grinding corn until 1933, until slowly falling into disrepair. The buildings have been painstakingly renovated and as well as this café, there are a clutch of little gift shops offering local items.The menu was completely vegetarian until recently, but has now a little to offer some fish and meat.
As well as excellent coffee and tea, expect simple, but carefully cooked light dishes, such as 'Garden Pea & Fresh Mint Soup'; 'Salmon Fish Cakes' and 'Vegetable Moussaka'.
In summer months, the terrace has views over the River Caldbeck and the village cricket pitch.
They open for supper for groupss by arrangement.
