The Kitchen Court Cafe

Details

Based in the beautiful setting of Wray Castle on the shores of Windermere, The Kitchen Court Café opened in April 2018 and is run by tenants and local foodies The Lakes Catering Company Ltd. Their food is sourced locally and of the highest quality. The soups, casseroles, sandwiches, rolls, cakes, tray bakes, scones, are supplied by themselves, Appleby dairy supply the cheeses which are delivered by a local milkman from Town End dairy. The chutneys are from Hawkshead Relish and Lancashire crisps from Fiddlers (unfortunately we don't make crisps in Cumbria!), and English Lakes supply our ice cream. The award winning coffee is supplied by Carvetii which is roasted in Cockermouth. The blended loose leaf teas are supplied by New Leaf Tea in Far Sawrey, with a NEW Lakeland Sunrise tea. The cakes, tray bakes, scones, soup and pies are supplied by The Lakes Catering Company Ltd themselves who are proud to support local artisans.
