Food and drink at Lydford Gorge
There are two tea-rooms at Lydford Gorge, for opening times please check on site.
For the River trail, Devil's Cauldron tea-room, visitor welcome and toilets head to the Devil's Cauldron entrance (EX20 4BH).
For a shorter walk head to the Waterfall entrance (EX20 4BL). Here you'll find the waterfall tea-room, visitor welcome and toilets.
The two entrances are linked by the River trail.
Visitors to the gorge have been taking refreshment after their exertions since Victorian times. When the railway arrived in 1865 it was the first time ordinary Victorians could experience for themselves the spectacle of Whitelady Waterfall.
Both tea-rooms serve a selection of sandwiches, soup, paninis, cakes, cream teas and ice-cream. Indoor and outdoor seating is available to help you make the most of the weather. Well behaved dogs are allowed in the tea-rooms and there are colouring materials to help keep the children entertained.
The Devil's Cauldron tea-room serves an additional lunch menu between 12 noon and 3pm including seasonal specials, jacket potatoes and pasties. The Lydford Stack - a griddled cheese scone stacked with hot bacon, melting brie and garlic mayonnaise is a lunch time indulgence to see you through whatever you’ve got planned.
