Eating at Aira Force
A short stroll from the main Aira Force car park is the Aira Force tea-room, which gives visitors the choice of eating indoors, on the terrace or taking away. Pop in to enjoy hot and cold drinks, home bakes, sandwiches, hot pasties and ice creams.
Tea-room treats at Aira Force
Morning coffee with a view
The terrace is built at the front of the tea-room to make the most of the amazing views over Ullswater Lake and the fells behind. Sit back, sip your coffee and take it all in.
Fancy taking your lunch with you? Grab a sandwich or a hot pasty and eat it by the lake or up on the fells. There's a handy tap outside the tea-room for filling your water bottles.
Fun for the kids
Also outside the tea-room, there’s some great fun to be had hopping between tree stumps and running over logs in the natural play area. Children are well catered for in the tea-room, with a range of sandwiches, cakes and ice creams.
Dogs are welcome
The Aira Force tea-room welcomes dogs inside and out, but please keep them on a lead and under control. There are dog bowls so that your pooch can keep hydrated whatever the weather.
Most of the food and drink served is prepared on site in our kitchen, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free.
If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served, please ask the staff, who will be happy to help.
