Locally sourced

Our café is paired with Calke Abbey, so the majority of our food comes to us freshly made from Calke every day. An abundance of produce is home-grown or reared on the Calke estate and used in the kitchen.

Our other suppliers are sourced as locally as possible – from the bread baked daily in Ashby to the chocolate we source from the nearby village of Melbourne. We like to keep things local.

How to find us

The café is located at Staunton Harold Reservoir near Melbourne, Derbyshire. You can find us on Calke Road, Windmill Hill, Melbourne, Derbyshire, DE73 8DL.

Please note that the reservoir is not owned by the National Trust, therefore car parking charges apply to all visitors. Please visit the Severn Trent website for car parking information and prices.
