Lanercost Tea Room

Lanercost Tea Room

Lanercost Tea Room is more than a tea room, our ethos is simple,
‘we don’t serve “fast food”, we serve good food as fast as we can!'

Our menu is full of fabulous homemade food, freshly prepared to order using quality local produce. We serve breakfast and lunch every day of the week along with speciality teas and coffee, indulgent cake and homemade scones (freshly baked each morning!). There is a daily Specials Board and Gluten Free options.

You can check out our main menu here.

Situated within the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall and next door to the 12th century Lanercost Priory we are truly blessed with a fabulous setting making us the perfect place to meet and eat all year round!  When the weather is kind you can enjoy sitting outside on the terrace –‘café culture Cumbrian style’. Check out our Bark & Brew, our dedicated dog friendly seating area for your canine companions too.

You will find us open every day including Sundays and Bank Holidays.  Situated 12 miles east of Carlisle, 15 minutes from the M6 and easy to find at the gateway to Hadrian’s Wall.  Simply follow signs from the A689/A69 to Brampton and then the Brown Tourist  Signs to Lanercost Priory and Birdoswald Roman Fort. This will take you straight to us.

‘Where Cumbrian heritage and hospitality come together’

More than a Gift Shop ...

We like to think we’re a bit of a hidden gem tucked away in the Cumbrian countryside. Our gift shop is packed full of unique products from candles, lip balms and soaps to pure wool throws, scarfs, handbags and decorative accessories. And when you shop with us you support other small and local businesses as many of our products are ‘Made in Cumbria’ or ‘Made in Britain’.

Dog Friendly Tea Room

Bark & Brew

Bring your dog too!

We love all dogs so it seemed natural for us to open a dedicated dog friendly seating area so they could enjoy cake and coffee with their owners indoors, all year round. See our ‘Hall of Fame’ photo gallery of our lovely visitors (available also on our Facebook page ‘Bark & Brew at Lanercost Tea Room’)

All dogs and their well-behaved owners welcome.
