Eating at Cragside
The tea room
The tea room is the largest eatery at Cragside. Found at the visitor centre, it serves hot and cold lunches, including freshly baked jacket potatoes with a topping of your choice, hearty pasties and delicious daily specials alongside your favourite light bites such as sandwiches, cakes and of course….scones!
The tea room is open 11am-3pm.
Exploring Cragside can be thirsty work, especially if you’re following one of the waymarked walks on the grounds. Crozier’s kiosk, named after Andrew Crozier - the Armstrongs' dedicated Butler - can be found in Crozier car park. It’s perfectly situated at the very top of the grounds, next to Nelly’s Moss Lakes and the adventure play area, making it a great place to stop for a cuppa and refuel with a sandwich or scooped ice cream. You can tuck into your refreshments on a nearby picnic table before setting off for more exploring.
Crozier’s kiosk currently open on weekends only, 12pm-2pm.
The Still Room
Get the scoop... in any weather! At The Still Room, between the archways at the House, you'll be spoilt for choice with 8 tasty scooped ice cream flavours to choose from. There’s a selection of bakes, cakes, and sandwiches too. All are available to takeaway, or you can find a seat on one of the outdoor tables.
Temporarily closed for a counter top refit.
Fresh as a daisy!
