Refreshments are a must when exploring the Lake District; driving those windy roads, climbing fells, ghyll scrambling etc. Wray Castle is set in the rolling hills of Beatrix Potter’s country, on the crystal clear western shore of Lake Windermere. Joey’s Cafe is the perfect pitstop for walking around Wray Castle and the grounds. Why not combine bagging one of Alfred Wainwright’s outlying fells, Latterbarrow, with a trip to Joeys.
Eco- Focused Vegetarian Food
Joey’s is an eco-focused vegetarian cafe that can not only be found at Wray Castle but also Claife Viewing Station. Occasionally popping up at Hill Top Farm and other spots in the height of summer. They serve plant-based bakery items and coffee from their roastery, powered by solar panels. Additionally, Joey’s serves everything in recyclable packaging, a draw for those hunting sustainable hangouts. It’s a great place to unwind after visiting Beatrix Potter Attractions or exploring nearby National Trust properties. Enjoy the cosy atmosphere with snug seating inside and outside picnic tables.
Their weekend specials include everything from Loaded Chilli Nachos to Vegan pasties made with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. And did we mention that they have gluten-free options too?
Stop by on your next trip up North or whenever you need a little something special in your life. You’ll be glad you did!
