The National Trust tea-room is open daily throughout the year serving homemade cakes, hot and cold lunches, drinks and ice creams. There is outdoor seating offering far reaching views towards Dovedale or you can warm up inside the tea-room. Money raised from this tea-room goes towards looking after the Peak District.
