Eating at Fell Foot

The outdoor seating area of the Boathouse cafe

Whether you're looking to warm up with a frothy cappuccino and enjoy the view or grab an ice cream mid-adventure, there are plenty of options to choose from here at Fell Foot to keep you refueled throughout the day.

In line with government guidance, our indoor and outdoor seating areas are now open. To ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit as safely as possible, we continue to have safety measures in place including screens at our tills and collection points, a one way system and waymarked routes.

Please wear a face covering and check in using the NHS COVID-19 app when you visit – your support helps to keep us open, thank you.

Please note – we are unable to take table reservations.

The Boathouse Café

Overlooking Windermere, the Boathouse Café is the perfect spot to relax and re-charge. Open seven days a week, 10am til 4pm throughout the year (apart from Christmas Day), with a selection of hot and cold food, cakes and bakes and barista coffee.

Enjoy a brew with a view - take time to switch off and watch the boats float by. Don't miss the viewing platform which showcases the Fairfield Horseshoe mountain range as you look north up the lake (wheelchair accessible). View the full cafe menu here.

We have a range of flavours to suit all tastes, and vegan cheese is also available. Pizzas come in takeaway boxes so you choose your own perfect picnic spot in the park. Available every Sunday afternoon, 12 til 3pm. View the menu here.
