About Us

Open daily, the Watermill Café is situated on the upper floor of Priest's Mill.  Access is via a path at the side of the mill. 


Helen and her team prepare delicious fine food on the premises each day using only the best quality produce available. The choice ranges from tea, coffees & light refreshments to lunches and full meals, and we also hold regular Dinner Evenings.

In warmer weather we have an outdoor tea garden with views over the river Caldbeck, surrounding fells and the village cricket pitch. During the winter months the restaurant is warm and inviting with a cosy log stove.

Also available to purchase is a range of homemade cakes, chutneys, jams, relish and marmalade and fudge. 

Wi-Fi is available for customers use throughout the café.

We also have an art exhibition area in the café where local artists can display their work.

Outside catering and evening parties can be catered for by arrangement. We can also supply suppers and picnics to visitors in the area. Please contact us for further information of this service.
