Ireby Green Cafe, Cowan Bridge
Delicious home cooked food to be enjoyed at the stunning Ireby Green Farm Café. We pride ourselves on the fact that everything we serve is prepared on site. From delicious lunchtime meals to Sylvia’s spectacular array of homemade cakes and bread. Everything is lovingly created within our own kitchen using the finest local ingredients.

This is no ordinary café. All lunchtime meals are daily specials using the best seasonal ingredients. From traditional hearty Sunday lunches to our spectacular salads and soups, our food uses the best traditions of wholesome farm cooking fused with a modern twist. Food is a passion for Sylvia as she comes from a long line of farming women. Down both sides of her family are fabulous farm cooks, each with their own show stopper. We want to highlight this family tradition in both the cakes, meals and deserts we serve.

Enjoy our food in the newly completed Café or relax on the covered veranda and listen to Ireby Beck running past your table. The café is located in the centre of our organic livestock farm. Once you’ve digested a hearty meal why not work off some of the indulgence on our beautiful farm walk that takes in spectacular views of Ingleborough to the east and the Lake District to the west.

Open from 9.30 am until 5.00pm, 7 days a week we serve all day breakfasts, hot and cold lunches with daily specials, fantastic home-made cakes and bread with a great selection of tea's and coffee's.

All of the dishes are made onsite and where ever possible we use the finest local and seasonal ingredients. All of our meat comes from either Ireby Green or from local farmers such as Bowland Outdoor Reared Pork at Lowgill. Taylors of Harrogate supply our tea and coffee. Parsons of Kendal supply our fruit, vegetables and dairy and not forgetting the fantastic English Lakes Ice-cream Company who supply amazing ice-cream.

A small farm and craft shop is now up and running. As well as a mouth-watering range of preserves we also stock award winning sausages, bacon and beef. Free range eggs and freshly made bread are also available daily. Also in stock, a wide range or preserves, jams and relishes by artisan producers of the award winning preserves, Hawkshead Relish Company.

In addition we have a wonderful array of arts and crafts by local producers including M.G Robinson, Haigh Crafts, Abundant love Ltd and Furry Felties as well as some National Brands such as Leslie Gerry and Thomas Joesph.
