Eating and shopping at Longshaw

A warm welcome awaits you at the Longshaw cafe from our friendly staff

Our cafe is well-known for its delicious baking and peaceful setting; accompanied with glorious views across the Burbage Valley to the rocky outcrops of Higger Tor and Owler Tor.

A brew with a view

A warm welcome awaits you at the Longshaw Cafe, ideally situated so that you can take a moment to relax and admire the sweeping views across the Longshaw estate. After exploring you can choose to sit inside or outside with a hot or cold drink and why not treat yourself to a slice of homemade cake or sample a delicious option from our lunch menu. Be sure to look out for seasonal recipes and daily specials. If you get a bit chilly sitting outside you are more than welcome to borrow one of our cosy blankets. Should you have any dietary requirements please just ask one of our friendly team members for advice.

Our cafe is open daily, from 10.30am - 4pm, and from 16 February we are open 10am - 5pm, for the spring and summer. Dogs on leads are welcome in the outdoor seating areas but not inside the cafe itself - many thanks for understanding.
