Lakeside Cafe

Lakeside Cafe is situated in the award winning Green Flag Treasure and Nature Reserve Ball Grove Park. Paths lead through the nature reserve to Laneshaw Bridge and the picturesque village of Wycoller, along the Ferndean Way with its Bronte associations.

The cafe offers a warm, friendly and relaxing atmosphere with seating inside and outside, with fantastic views overlooking the lake.

The menu offers light lunches, snacks, afternoon teas, a selection of homemade cakes, hot and cold drinks and daily homemade specials including soups and casseroles, using seasonal and locally produced products.

Duck food is available to purchase from the cafe and there is a small play area available inside with toys and books to keep the little ones busy.

Cyclists, walkers, families and anglers are all welcome.
