The Muddy Boots café is a relaxed, informal eating place serving fresh, seasonal food. 

Ideal for a post-walk snack, choose from hot and cold drinks, light bites and ice creams.  Muddy Boots is next to the visitor welcome area in the main car park and you'll get a warm welcome from Chris and his team, whatever the weather.
