Café Solar in the visitor centre has wonderful views over the lake from the huge glass windows. It serves a full range of hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and light meals, including daily specials, every day from 10am to 5pm. Where possible, ingredients are sourced locally. The Hideaway indoor play area with its large viewing window provides parents with the opportunity to have a relaxing drink whilst watching young children play.
The mezzanine, an upper deck with seating and heritage displays, is stylishly furnished, has spectacular views and provides a quieter area for those wishing to enjoy a more peaceful refreshment break. In addition to the indoor café, an outside terrace overlooking the lake provides seating for alfresco dining.
Ice creams, hot and cold drinks, snacks and confectionary are sold outside in the kiosk and there is also an ice-cream van situated in the car park during peak periods. Speciality evenings such as Bistro, themed nights and family friendly evenings take place throughout the year. See events for details.
