Lanercost Tearoom

Lanercost Tearoom


Adjacent to 12th century Lanercost Priory and with the World Heritage site of Hadrian's Wall less than half a mile away there's plenty to do locally. In the converted outbuildings to the original Abbey Farm is a fabulous Tea Room, Gift Shop and Hadrian's Wall Visitor Information Centre which makes it an ideal start to your journey to explore the World Heritage Site. We are only 2 miles from the small market town of Brampton, and a short drive from the city of Carlisle with easy access to the M6, just follow the brown tourist sign to Lanercost Priory.

Lanercost Tea Room is more than a tea room, our ethos is simple, ‘we don’t serve “fast food”, we serve good food as fast as we can!'

Our menu reflects this, with homemade food, freshly prepared to order using quality local produce. We serve breakfast and lunch every day of the week along with speciality teas and coffee, indulgent cake and homemade scones (freshly baked each morning!). We also have a daily Specials Board and Gluten Free options. And when the weather is kind you can enjoy sitting outside on our terrace - ‘café culture Cumbrian style’.

We are the perfect place to meet and eat all year round from 9:30am – 5:00pm every day, come rain or shine. Situated less than half a mile away from the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall and next door to the 12th century Lanercost Priory we are truly blessed with a fabulous setting and the perfect place to start your journey across the wall.

Our gift shop is packed full of unique products from candles, lip balms and soaps to pure wool throws, scarfs, handbags and decorative accessories. We like to support other small and local businesses so many of our products are ‘Made in Cumbria’ or ‘Made in Britain’.We also sell local jams, preserves and beers.

We love all dogs so it seemed natural for us to open a dedicated dog friendly seating area, Bark & Brew, so dogs can enjoy relaxing their owners indoors, all year round.
