Stop to enjoy views over the River Dane with a slice of cake and a cup of tea

Opened at Easter 2017, we're now offering a selection of light snacks, ice creams and drinks for passing walkers, cyclists and visitors making their way to Lud’s Church, the Roaches, the Dane Valley and surrounding woodlands.

We occupy an enviable position overlooking the River Dane and our outdoor café is a great place to stop, relax and savour the beautiful atmosphere.

Opening times:

Easter to October (closed during winter)

11am - 5pm

Saturdays, Sundays, Bank Holidays and open 7 days during the summer school holidays 

Our menu changes all the time but offers a selection of snacks including artisan sandwiches served on thick-cut bloomer bread, ploughman's salads, a selection of cakes including scones with strawberry jam & real Cornish clotted cream. We also have a selection of ice creams, packaged snacks & confectionary. Of course we've got drinks too, our coffee is made using freshly ground beans, from espresso to cappuccino & everything in-between, we've also got hot chocolate & a selection of teas. We're not short of cold drinks too offering a selection of botanically brewed non-alcoholic beverages from Fentimens along with kid friendly options & our local Buxton spring bottled water.
