Prepare To Be Spoiled

The Visitor Centre cafe is run by staff and volunteers, well known for their hospitality and recently awarded Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence for 2016.

Visitors can choose from cosy indoor seating or a pleasant outside terraced area, complete with a canopy, which makes it available come rain or shine.

Choose from delicious home-made soup, toasties and sandwiches, or a selection of locally made scones or cakes. You can be sure of the very best Italian coffee and a wide selection of speciality teas. There are lots of choices for little ones too!
