Food and drink at Lydford Gorge
Due to the coronavirus crisis this information is not up to date for 2020.
The tea-rooms at Lydford Gorge can be found at each of the two entrances to the gorge. The Devil’s Cauldron and Waterfall entrances are linked by the full Lydford Gorge 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.
