Orton Grange Cafe

The Cafe

Looking for somewhere to eat and relax in North Cumbria? Orton Grange Café could be the very place! Orton Grange Cafe opened in August 2006 in a superbly converted sandstone barn, to add to our unique Gift Shop which is next door.

The cafe is used by a wide variety of customers. From friends meeting for lunch & coffee with their babies, children having lunch after swimming classes, people having their daily morning coffee read the paper, people passing through on their way to the lakes, business meetings, ladies afternoon tea and drinking prosecco, gin on a Friday afternoon, to people ordering food on the way to their hair appointment, which can be brought up to them while they have their hair done in The Shearing Shed.

We also do Take away for those in a rush, if you have a large order then we can take your orders over the phone, allowing you to simply send someone to collect the order. For a quick & easy tasty lunch our whole menu is available for take away. Many people arrive to visit the shop and end up having lunch in the café. You can order and spend your time browsing until your food is ready.

The conversion was planned to be modern and stylish. And the glass and steel perfectly complement the original sandstone walls. The café is on two floors. Upstairs there are comfortable sofas and it’s not unusual for people to spend all afternoon here. 

We offer our famous Farmer’s Full English breakfast, which is served all day every day! We also have our very popular ploughman’s lunches using the best quality cheese and ham, Lakeland Steak Burger & Home-made Chips, toasted sandwiches, home-made soup, quiches and cakes. Most are accompanied by chef’s delicious coleslaw and salads. We have a range of drinks, both soft and alcoholic, as well as a range of Fairtrade teas and coffees.

Orton Grange Café is open the same hours as our shop: 10 to 5 Mondays to Saturdays, 11 to 4 on Sundays & Bank Holiday Mondays. Please note that last orders in the cafe are 30 minutes before we close & 1 hour before for hot meals
