Tea/Coffee Shop




With over 30 year’s experience, the Watermill Tearoom is known for the quality and variety of its food. We use fresh and mostly organic ingredients, some from our own biodynamic smallholding. We’re most proud of our fully operational watermill. It’s the only one in Cumbria and was built in the 1750s. Our millshop stocks a range of organic groceries and the Gallery has regular exhibitions by local artists. Visiting the mill makes for a great day out but if you haven't got time to visit, take a look at our website.

Speciality: Organic only and fully vegetarian.

Chef: Jackie Carter

Covers: 30
