The Mediaeval Hall Tearoom, Gift Shop with Antiques & Plant Sales

The Medieval Tearoom at Dalemain Opening Hours:

29th October – 18th December: Sunday – Thursday 11am – 3pm

With delicious homemade food in a beautiful setting, it’s the perfect place for a leisurely visit.

Soak up the feeling of days gone by sitting by the large open log fire in the original Medieval Hall which houses the Dalemain Tearoom. Try a delicious selection of hot and cold homemade food, speciality coffees using Farrer’s coffees from Kendal, our freshly-baked scones, as well as the famous Dalemain chocolate cake!

Look out for the selection of enchanting and original Dalemain Marmalades exclusively available for you to buy at Dalemain and Fortnum & Mason, London.

With FREE parking and FREE access to the Tearoom in the historic courtyard, there are numerous reasons to visit Dalemain this winter. Why not just pop in?

The Dacre Walk begins from Dalemain Courtyard and ends at the beautiful 12th Century, Grade I listed church at Dacre. Guarded by bears at the four corners and containing a cross-legged crusader, it is the ideal way to spend a sunny afternoon, or perhaps to end a rainy one with a steaming cup of tea and a well-earned piece of cake in the Dalemain Tearoom.

We can also provide catering for special events such as birthday parties, small conferences, or group Christmas lunches. Please enquire for further details if you are planning an event.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
