Our friendly and welcoming café was a Cumbria Life Food Award Finalist for ‘Café of the Year’ 2016 and is a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence holder. It creates delicious, freshly prepared food using local produce including ingredients grown in our own kitchen garden. The café is just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Ulverston’s busy main streets. With free parking, access to Sir John Barrow Monument, a sheltered sunny courtyard and roof terrace, plus all the amenities of Ford Park within reach, it is a wonderful place to relax. There’s even a gallery space with regular exhibitions. The Bistro is open for evening dining on select dates throughout the year and can also be hired for private parties and special occasions, and is a licensed wedding venue offering distinctive and intimate locations.
