low sizergh barn café menu

Café

What can you expect from the Low Sizergh Barn café menu? We use farm eggs, award-winning Kendal Creamy cheese made with milk from our herd & ice cream made in Windermere from our milk, organic salad leaves grown on the farm by Growing Well and fruit from our orchards.

You’re very welcome to enjoy a hearty Cumbrian breakfast, sip leaf tea that’s blended to suit local water, lunch on favourites made every day in the kitchen or tuck into afternoon tea.

Choice menu items are also found on the shelves of the farm shop. You’ll find a list of some of our favourite suppliers at the bottom of this page.

Afternoon milking is around 3.30pm; watch the cows from the café windows while enjoying a glass of their milk — how cool is that?

Please speak to a member of staff if you have a food allergy or intolerance.
