The Weaving Shed Cafe

At Gibson Mill you’ll find our Weaving Shed Café, just a 25 minute walk from our Midgehole Road car parks. The room itself was originally built to be a weaving shed and it was used as a roller-rink during the entertainment emporium years of Hardcastle Crags.



Perfect for a light lunch. There are various seasonal choices including tasty tomato, red pepper and Wensleydale cheese, as well as fresh pea, spinach and coriander.
