Eating out in the Lake District

Cafés at the attractions and The Ratty Arms

Find happiness in simple things such as good food with good company

For many of us, food plays an important role in our holiday. Whether you’re looking for an age-old pub serving up a plate of hearty grub, the chance to experience locally sourced ingredients, a cosy coffee shop with temptingly good cakes and coffee to match, or perhaps a traditional afternoon tea in a picture-perfect setting, you’ll find it all here.

The Ratty Arms


The Ratty Arms Pub is located on the platform of Ravenglass station on the scenic Cumbrian Coast Line, which runs past the main terminus of our narrow gauge railway. Guests can sit back and unwind with a meal and a drink, providing the perfect end to a train-filled day as they watch the mainline trains go by.

The Turntable Café


The Turntable Café is located on platform one of Ravenglass station and is the perfect place to pick up ice creams, drinks, and snacks including delicious pies. Dogs are welcome on the lower floor. There's inside seating as well as covered outdoor seating on the platform.



Fellbites is our contemporary eatery on the platform at Dalegarth for Boot station. Here you will find sit-in or takeaway treats such as hot pies, sausage rolls, or ice cream. We offer a varied menu of light snacks or heartier bites freshly prepared on-site. Dogs are welcome on the lower floor of this building only.
