The Bivouac café lies at the heart of our site and is the perfect waterhole for our resident guests and visiting walkers, families and those who want to simply enjoy the scenery. With uncomplicated dishes and snacks to tickle the taste buds, feel free to pop in for coffee and cake, a light lunch, or make an evening of it and enjoy a delicious meal in this distinctive setting. Where we can, we strive to get fresh local produce for our ingredients.
On warm summer days visitors can sit out on the patio and enjoy a cup of tea or light snack while being soothed by the spectacular views down into the valley. The log burner keeps the mezzanine level in our cafe nice and toasty for wetter Yorkshire days providing a snug setting for you to enjoy your food while looking down over the main cafe area. Hidden below is our family den with a selection of toys to entertain your children and provide a creative place to play. For the more inquisitive just step through the doors of the family den into our walled garden where you can sit out and delight in the beautiful scenery!
