After your adventure around the reserve we have the perfect refuelling solution.

Based in the visitor’s centre our Watchtree Café has a friendly team of staff and volunteers that make the reserve a pleasure to visit.

We are open daily, serving delicious homemade breakfasts and lunches. All made from locally sourced ingredients and prepared in our recently refurbished kitchen. So pop in, relax and enjoy a beverage or two. Why not treat your sweet-tooth to some of our amazing cakes and desserts.

For lighter bites, we have a large selection of crisps, snacks and Lake District ice cream flavours to excite your taste buds.

If you have any questions about allergens have no fear, our menu is regularly assessed, ensuring we stay current with changes in legislation. We provide a detailed breakdown of each dish for allergens; please ask a member of our team and they will be happy to help with your query.

If you are part of a large group, with advanced notice, we can provide a private space and alternative catering packages to meet your requirements. We cater for birthday parties, meetings and other special events.
