Cafe by the Lake

Cafe by the Lake

Details

Our new Café by the Lake building is located between the Theatre and Derwentwater. Lofty, light and airy, its large windows give spectacular views across the lake to Cat Bells and beyond. It's the perfect setting for breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake or a stylish dinner whether you are seeing a show or just stopping by on impulse. It's also welcoming to groups, available to hire for your special occasions and has free Wi-Fi.

Café by the Lake is open from 9am. We serve breakfast until noon, offering a tempting range of hot rolls and muffins featuring various combinations of Cumbrian bacon, Cumberland sausage and free range eggs. For lunch we offer soup, tasty hot and cold sandwiches, salads and hot dishes. Come with the papers and watch the light change by the minute over Derwentwater.

From 5.30-8pm you can dine in comfort all year round with pre-theatre meals (available with or without booking a performance) including a choice of starters, main courses and sweets made largely with foods produced in Cumbria. Add a glass of wine or beer - and enjoy the view!

For table reservations and more information please call 017687 81102 or visit the Food & Drink section of our website.
