Meadowside Café & Bar


Meadowside cafe is situated in the cobbled village of Dent in Dentdale, Meadowside is the perfect mix of contemporary café bar and traditional home-cooked fare with an added modern twist

Relax outside in the sunshine with a cappuccino or a glass of wine for Dales-style café culture and people watching down 'The Laning', or if the weather's not so kind you'll find a cosy spot by our wood-burning stove to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of tea or hot chocolate and watch the ever-changing views of Rise Hill and the Dentdale landscape.

Traditional Homemade Fare

At Meadowside we pride ourselves on quality, with almost everything homemade. From our gluten free soup

of the day with crusty bread, to our home-cooked Cumberland egg in the hole sandwich, and of course our

fabulous range of delicious home-baked cakes, muffins, tarts & eclairs, and sweet & savory scones - always available with a pot of Yorkshire tea or our celebrated barista style coffee. 

Our superb, freshly cooked 'Full English' and 'Full Vegetarian' breakfasts start the day off well for campers, walkers and day-trippers alike. At lunchtimes we offer full hearty meals as well as snacks and light bites - from soups, sandwiches, toasties and homemade loaded fries to our trio of Yorkshire cheese toastie, Cumberland ring egg in the middle buttie with tomato confit &  posh cod fish finger sandwich, or selection of Dirty Burgers, as well as a selection of daily specials.
